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.

If you are not sure if you are using hashtags correctly, be sure to read this >>

When You’re Not At Peace With A Client, Is It Okay To Walk Away?

Recently, I had a situation in which I was not at peace with the client that I was working with.

I worked with this client for about one year. The client came to me with no marketing strategy. He said he had a website and that was it. I put together an online marketing strategy for him. I designed a new website for the client, set up and managed a Facebook page, Twitter account, Google+ page, and a LinkedIn profile.

I explained to him how he needed to focus on his niche, which was in a very reputable industry – one in which he could succeed in if he followed the plan.

Why Are People Posting On My Facebook Page?

“I saw some things on Facebook. I’m so confused about my Facebook. I don’t know how to use it, how to look at it. I get all these photos from all these different people. How do they get on my Facebook? There’s just all this trash. It’s just unbelievable. They go on and on about who and what’s happening in their lives. I’m confused if I’m looking at the wrong page or if this is it. Please advise me more!”
No, this is not a scene from the movie, The Sixth Sense. It is actually from an email that I received from a social media client that is new to Facebook. I can assure you, this client is not seeing ghosts nor is she alone in expressing these concerns. Read why she was freaking out >>
