Facebook Isn’t Twitter (And It Sure Ain’t Instagram)

Hey, people! Please stop posting on Facebook like it’s Twitter or worse yet, Instagram.

More and more I am seeing people posting on their Facebook Business pages as if they were on Twitter or Instagram. Now, I’m not talking about those who have their tweets or Instagram posts sent to their Facebook Business page. That I get (I don’t agree with it 100%, but I get it.) Those I am speaking of are those who are posting using the @mention feature – you will find on Twitter – instead of tagging other businesses on Facebook. I also notice these same people are also going hashtag crazy!

At first, I thought maybe they were mentioning the other businesses using their Twitter handles with the hope people would rush over to Twitter to follow these businesses. But, after I did some research, I noticed that it looks like they began the tagging process with the @businessname, but they didn’t follow through to continue tagging. How do I know this? Because, when I put the @businessesnames in a post, Facebook actually prompts me to tag the businesses that are being referenced.

Are you confused yet? Well, you are not alone.

Now, I could have said, I don’t do Instagram, which is a project I vowed never to take on, but because I absolutely love working on Connect Nigeria’s team, I was determined to figure out how to get these photos uploaded from my PC to their Instagram account. Now, to you this may not seem like a big deal, but I was sweating bullets trying to figure this out. Read more >>
