Step 1. On the Facebook homepage, hover over the Home button in the top-left corner of your screen and click on Settings from the drop-down menu that appears. When the Settings page opens, click on Account Settings in the left-hand column and enter your password in the pop-up window that appears. Click Edit next to Apps under Personal Information on the General Account Settings page.
What people like about your profile
I remember when I created my first social media profile and I set everything up so that it was as close to perfect as I could get it. Fast forward a couple of years, and some people have taken that basic profile and hacked it, making it even better by adding things like their degrees and certifications (or diplomas if you are outside of North America). These things may not seem like a big deal now, but they will help your brand image tremendously over time.
Improving your profile picture
Have you ever wondered how to take a good profile picture on Facebook? Well if so, you are not alone. As a matter of fact, people want to know that so much that some research shows over 1.5 million Google searches per month are related to questions like these. With that said, here is what you need to do in order to make sure your picture looks its best on social media
Make sure it is easy to click like
The more likes, shares and comments your post gets, the more likely people are to see it in their feed. One of your first steps should be to select a catchy title and make sure you use some relevant hashtags. It’s also important to make sure that your post is easy to share so that users can click on any social media icon (including Google+) in order to like it. Finally, think about including an eye-catching image as well as having a short but relevant message.
What to do with your cover photo?
The number one place most people start when they want to customize their Facebook experience is with their cover photo. If you’re looking for a change, try uploading a new image and choosing Cover Photo when prompted in order to make it your new profile image. You can either choose an image from your own computer or take a picture directly within Facebook by clicking on Use as Profile Picture and then taking aim at your target from inside of the app.
Telling people what you want them to do
Unless you’re in a completely master-slave relationship, no one likes being told what to do. Instead of saying that someone needs to buy something, say that they’ll get great value from it or will love it. Instead of saying that people should come to your party, invite them with a little detail about why you think they’ll have fun. Instead of telling someone to do something, ask how you can help them accomplish their goal.
Writing text on images
This is becoming a popular method for scammers and hackers. This method allows them to bypass spam filters by disguising their actual message in an image using steganography. It’s most often used on social media sites like Facebook. In these messages, you see an image of something benign or funny, but when you hover over it, it contains text—usually saying something else entirely and linking to a malicious site.
The 7 best practices of writing an engaging status update
By now, we all know that posting entertaining content on Facebook leads to more people interacting with it. But not all status updates are created equal—in fact, a recent study by Social Bakers found that only 14% of updates get positive feedback from your friends. And when you consider that around 50% of users have left Facebook at least once because of an update from a friend or brand, you can see how valuable every single update really is. So what’s so great about some posts and not others?
The 5 step process of getting more shares on social media
Every business needs social media to gain exposure. Every business needs more people following them on their social media platforms. How do you get more people to follow you? The answer lies in getting shares, likes, and retweets. Many businesses try to buy these items and fail many times; they’re either not getting quality followers or they’re spending too much money. When it comes down to it, all of your content has a better chance of being shared if it’s unique! Hire someone else with a huge social following to post your articles for you. Do not pay them per share like most companies will offer you, that is just wasting hard earned money! Instead pay by percentage based on how much traffic was driven to your website after they share it. Always ask for some type of tracking so there are no arguments over how well something performed – know exactly what you paid for when you paid for it. If someone is offering less than 5% with no verifiable method of tracking then don’t bother giving them any freebies as payment – stick with those who care about their reputation instead of filling up their bank account at YOUR expense!
