Well Facebook is at it again! The changes just keep on coming; but unlike times past, some of these changes I really like. It’s beneficial to understand some of these changes for your own personal accounts, but especially if you manage clients accounts like we do. I’ve listed a few of the changes that I like below and would love for you to post your comments about the ones you like…
I truly like the “Subscribe” button that allows you to follow someone without getting their “friendship” approval so-to-speak. 🙂 If you have “high profile” clients, the “subscribe” button is a great way for your clients to maintain a growing fan base without letting everyone into their personal world.
I’m really “lovin'” the fact that you can use the ticker to check out what’s going on with those you engage with in real time. You can also hover over their updates to directly connect with them as well. “Ticker” is also great if you decide you want to limit what you see from certain people; as hovering over their updates offers options to customize what you see from them. This is truly a great feature and I believe it can be turned off if it bothers you.
I love lists! In fact I’ve been invited by an Emmy Award winning producer to do a guest blog post on a “List” for working virtually (stay tuned for that one to all our Newsletter subscribers!) So, again, lists are truly “the bomb” in my book. Again, you simply use your mouse to hover over your friends and add them to or segment them by list. This can be used as a great marketing tool for those that manage Facebook accounts for clients.
Well as I mentioned, I liked “some” of the changes 🙂 I know I haven’t listed them all (i.e. Timeline 🙂 So let me know which ones you like and why…
