Finding someone on another network

Searching for the members of your posse individually using the Find on Twitter feature is an easy way to get going, but it can be time-consuming and frustrating if you keep coming up empty. An often better way to go is to get Twitter to do some of the legwork for you. 

Specifically, you can tell Twitter to rummage through your list of contacts on your Gmail, Yahoo!, AOL, Hotmail, or MSN account. If Twitter finds one or more tweeters, it displays them in a list.

Follow these steps to give this a whirl:

 1.  Sign in to your Twitter account.

 2.  Click Find People. The Find People page appears.

3.  Click the Find on other networks tab.

 4.  Click the network you want to scour: Gmail, Yahoo, AOL, Hotmail, or MSN.

 5.  Type the e-mail address and password for that account.

6.  Click Continue. Twitter connects to your account, downloads your contacts list, and then checks for matches in the Twitter database. If it finds any, it displays them in a list and selects the check box beside each person by default.

7.  If there are any people you don’t want to follow, deselect the check box beside each of those people.

 8.  Click Follow. Twitter displays the Why not invite some friends? page, which lists all your contacts who don’t have a Twitter account. You can use this list to extend invitations to one or more contacts to join Twitter.

9.  Select the check box beside each person you want to invite.

 10.  Click Invite. Twitter fires off an e-mail message to each person.

Finding people with Twitter accounts

The best way to get started is to use the Find on Twitter feature, which enables you to scour the database of tweeters for someone you know. You can search by first name, last name, or even the person’s Twitter username. 

Here’s how it works:

 1.  Sign in to your Twitter account.

 2.  Click Find People. The Find People page appears.

 3.  Click the Find on Twitter tab.

 4.  Use the text box to type the name (first or last or both) of the person you’re looking for.Using both first and last names is usually the way to go here.If that doesn’t work, use just the last name or the first name, whichever is more unique. If all you have is a partial username, you can enter that instead.

 5.  In the search results, click the person’s avatar or username to check out their profile.

Twitter Tips--Getting an e-mail receive a direct message in Twitter



twitter tips,twitter tricks,twitter tips and tricks,twitter latest updates,facebook tips and tricks
Getting an e-mail receive a direct message in Twitter-If someone you’re following replies to one of your updates, then you see that reply in your friend timeline, but for all other replies you must open the @Replies section of your home page. However, direct messages never appear in your time lines, so you must sign in to Twitter to see them.


That’s a hassle, but luckily it’s possible to configure your Twitter account to forward direct messages to your e-mail address. This option is turned on by default in new Twitter accounts, but it’s worth following these steps to make sure:

 1.  Sign in to your Twitter account.

 2.  Click Settings.

 3.  Click the Notices tab.

 4.  Select the Email when I receive a new direct message check box.

 5.  Click Save. Twitter updates your account with the new setting.

Twitter Tips--Making private updates in twitter


twitter tips,twitter tricks,twitter tips and 

tricks,twitter latest updates,facebook tips and tricks
Making private updates in twitter. A default Twitter account is pretty much an open book:

A--Anyone (even people without a Twitter account) can access your home page and view your tweets.

 B--Each time you post a tweet it appears briefly on Twitter’s public timeline for all the world to see.

C--Anyone with a Twitter account can follow your updates.


Most Tweeters are fine with this, but you might prefer a less open approach. If so, you can configure your Twitter account to protect your updates. This means your account is much more private:

  A--Only people who follow you can access your home page and view your tweets.

  B--Your tweets never appear on Twitter’s public timeline.

 C-- People who want to follow you must send a request, and you can then either approve or decline that request.

If you like the sound of all that, here are the steps to follow to protect your updates:

 1.  Sign in to your Twitter account.

 2.  Click Settings. The Settings page appears.

 3.  Click the Account tab.

 4.  Select the Protect my updates check box.

 5.  Click Save. Twitter updates your profile to protect your updates.

Twitter Tips--Working with Updates Deleting,Adding

twitter tips,twitter tricks,twitter tips and tricks,twitter latest updates,facebook tips and tricks
Once you’ve begun posting updates in earnest, you may find that you need to perform a little maintenance work from time to time. Twitter does not offer many options in this department, but there are three things you can do: delete an update, mark an update as a favorite, and make your updates private. The next three sections take you through the details.

Deleting an update in Twitter

One of the unusual and occasionally frustrating quirks of Twitter is that your tweets aren’t editable.Once you click the Update button, your post gets shipped out to all your friends and what they see is what you sent.

If you misspelled a word, made some egregious grammatical gaffe, or forgot to include an address or some other crucial bit of data, too bad; the flawed tweet remains in the Twitter sphere for all to see.

When they make a major mistake in an update, most Tweeters simply send a fresh copy of the tweet with the corrections made (and,if possible,a brief note about what was corrected).

Still,that error-filled tweet remains in the timeline. What to do? The one thing that Twitter does allow you to do is delete a tweet. This removes the tweet not only from your profile page (which lists all your tweets), but also from the timelines of everyone who follows you.

twitter tips,twitter tricks,twitter tips and tricks,twitter latest updates,facebook tips and tricks


Here are the steps to follow to delete an update:

 1.  Sign in to your Twitter account.

 2.  Click Profile. Twitter displays a list of yourrecent      tweets.

 3.  If you don’t see the tweet you want to remove, scroll down to the bottom of the page and click    Older. Repeat this until you find the update.

 4.  Move the mouse pointer over the tweet text. As you can  see in figure 3.3, the Delete this update icon
     (a garbage can) appears to the right of the tweet.

5.  Click the Delete this update icon. Twitter asks you to  confirm the deletion.

 6.  Click OK. Twitter removes the tweet from your profile page, as well as from the home pages of all of your followers.

Adding an update to your favorites in Twitter

Twitter saves copies of all your updates on your profile page. The most recent 20 tweets appear on the main profile page (log in to your account and click Profile). To see earlier tweets, click the Older link at the bottom of the page, and then you keep clicking Older to go farther back in your update 
history.

This is fine if you only check out your previous tweets from time to time. However, you might occasionally post an update that contains something really useful that you want to access 
frequently, such as a Web site or a quotation. In that case, it can be a real pain to always have to dig back through your tweets to find the update you’re looking for. 

To work around this problem,Twitter lets you save that tweet as a favorite, and you can access it quickly by clicking the Favorites link that appears on both your home page and your profile page.

twitter tips,twitter tricks,twitter tips and tricks,twitter latest updates,facebook tips and tricks


Here are the steps required to save one of your tweets as a favorite:

 1.  Sign in to your Twitter account.

 2.  Click Profile. Twitter displays a list of your recent tweets.

 3.  If you don’t see the tweet you want to save as a favorite, scroll down to the bottom 
of the page and click Older. Repeat this until you find the update.

 4.  Move the mouse pointer over the tweet text. As you can see in figure 3.4, the Favorite this update icon (a star) appears to the right of the tweet.

 5.  Click the Favorite this update icon. Twitter adds a copy of the tweet to your Favorites list.

Twitter also changes the Favorite this update icon to an orange Un-favorite this update icon. As you’ve no doubt guessed, you click this icon when you no longer want to store a tweet in your Favorites list.

Twitter Tips- for managing the 140-character limit


Twitter Tips for managing the 140 character limit,twitter tips,twitter tips and tricks,fb tips,facebook tips,facebook tips and tricks,digg tips
Twitter Tips for managing the 140-character limit If there’s one thing that even many non-tweeters know about Twitter it’s that its messages can be no more than 140 characters long. Why 140 and not, say, 200, or 500, or no limit at all? Twitter was designed originally to use the Short Message Service (SMS) to send out its updates, and on the majority of SMS systems at the time, each message was limited to 160 characters. Twitter’s messages had to tack on the username at the front (which can be up to 15 characters long), so it 
chose 140 characters as the limit for a Twitter update.

Of course, knowing why you’ve only got 140 characters to express your thoughts is one thing, but actually shoehorning that thought into such a tiny space is quite another. Fortunately, with a bit of practice you’ll find yourself getting remarkably adept at crafting 140-words-or-less gems. To help you get there, here are a few pointers to bear in mind when composing your updates:

  Take advantage of the symbol short forms that are built in to the language. Use & or + instead of “and,” $ instead of “dollars,” % instead of “percent” or “percentage,” and so on.Use common abbreviations. E-mail, chat, instant messaging, and other forms of Internet communication have created a wide variety of abbreviations and acronyms, many of which are in common use: BTW (by the way), FYI (for your information), LOL 
(laughing out loud), and TTYL (talk to you later). Don’t hesitate to use these and other familiar short forms to save characters.

  Find shorter words. If there’s a key to winning the battle with the 140-character limit, it’s this: if a word has a shorter synonym, use the synonym. Delete “perturbed” and replace it with “mad”; get rid of “therefore” and use “so,” instead; replace “supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” with “cool.”

 Avoid redundancy and wordiness. If you’re bumping up against the 140-character ceiling, cast a critical eye over your text and ruthlessly rewrite passages that are redundant or that use more words than necessary. For example, use the Delete key to change “in the vicinity of” to “near” and trash “at this point in time” in favor of “now.”

Twitter tips--Sending an Update in twitter


Sending an Update in twitter,twitter tips,twitter tips and tricks,fb tips,facebook tips,facebook tips and tricks,digg tips
Sending an Update in twitter There are a few folks with Twitter accounts who are “read-only” users: they follow others, but they don’t post any updates themselves. That’s fine, I guess, if you’ve simply got nothing to say, but few of us are that tongue-tied. I assume you signed up with Twitter because you’ve got some things to 
share, so the next few sections take you through a few ways that you can do just that.

Before you get to that, you may be wondering exactly what you should be posting. Are there any rules, official or unofficial, for the type of content that you can send? Fortunately, the answer to that question is a resounding “No!” If what you have to say isn’t illegal, then go ahead and say it. Of course, you only have 140 characters to work with, so Twitter is no place for the long-winded. 

The sheer compactness of a typical Twitter missive means that although the content is as varied as the 
people who send it, tweets do tend to fall into a few basic categories.

Sending an update using the Twitter site

There are multiple ways you can post updates to Twitter, and you learn about most of them elsewhere in the book. However, the most common posting method is still the Twitter site itself, so run through the steps:

1.  Sign in to your Twitter account.

 2.  Click Home.

 3.  Use the large What are you doing? text box to type your 

update. As you type, the number above the right edge of the text box counts down from 140 to tell you how 
many characters you have left. There are three things to note about this countdown:

l  When the count dips below 20, the number color changes to Maroon.
1 When the count dips below 10, the number color changes to Red.

1   When the count dips below 0, the number color stays Red, but it also sprouts a negative sign, and Twitter disables the Update button, You need to get the count back to 0 or more before Twitter allows you to post.

4.  Click Update. Twitter posts the update and adds it to the feed of every person who’s following you.

Twitter tips--Stopping Twitter from Sending New Follower Messages


Stopping Twitter from Sending New Follower Messages,twitter tips,twitter tips and tricks,fb tips,facebook tips,facebook tips and tricks,digg tips
Stopping Twitter from Sending New Follower Messages With all these great renovations you’ve been doing, it won’t be long before people start beating a path to your Twitter door. You’ll know right away if your custom design is a hit because Twitter sends you an e-mail message every time a kind soul decides to follow you. Personally.

 I love getting these messages because it’s great to know that my tweets have a growing audience, and it also gives me a chance to check out lots of other profiles. You never know who you might come across 
and decide to follow yourself.

On the other hand, if your profile becomes quite popular, getting tons of messages from Twitter may not appeal to you. Similarly, you might be following as many people as you can handle, so you’re not interested in also following any of your new followers.

If that’s the case, then you should follow these steps to tell Twitter to stop sending you an e-mail message each time someone follows you:

 1.  Sign in to your Twitter account.

 2.  Click Settings. The Settings page appears.

 3.  Click the Notices tab.

 4.  Deselect the Email when someone starts following me check box.

 5.  Click Save. Twitter updates your profile with the new setting.

Twitter tips--Selecting a custom background image in Twitter

If you want to ramp up the “wow” factor, if you want to use your Twitter profile as part of a personal 
or business branding strategy, or if you just want a Twitter home that truly reflects your style and 
personality, then you need to augment your design with a custom background image.

You might think this is just a simple matter of uploading your favorite photo, but Twitter offers several unique challenges when it comes to selecting a background image. Before I get to those, run through the steps you need to follow to apply a custom background image to your Twitter profile:

 1.  Sign in to your Twitter account.

 2.  Click Settings. The Settings page appears.

 3.  Click the Design tab.

 4.  Click Change background image.

 5.  Click Browse. If you’re using Safari, click Choose File, instead. A file selection dialog box appears.

 6.  Choose the file you want to use, and then click Open (or Choose in Safari). You can use either a JPEG or a PNG file, and the maximum size is 800KB.

 7.  If you want Twitter to tile the image to cover the background, select the Tile background check box.

 8.  Click Save Changes. Twitter updates your profile with the new background image.

Twitter tips--Using a solid color background in Twitter 

The simplest customization you can make to your design is to switch to a solid color background.Swirling patterns and striking photos have their place in the world of Twitter backgrounds, but some people find them distracting. Framing your Twitter home with an attractive color lays a solid foundation for your content, and focuses your reader’s attention on your posts.

Here are the steps you have to follow to switch to a solid color background:

 1.  Sign in to your Twitter account.

 2.  Click Settings. The Settings page appears.

 3.  Click the Design tab.

 4.  If you have a predefined Twitter theme applied, click Change background image, and then click Don’t use a background image.

 5.  Click Change design colors.

 6.  Click the Background swatch. Twitter displays two color controls, The outer circle controls the base color, and the inner square controls the amount of gray in the color.

 7.  Click a spot in the outer circle to set the base color. You can also drag the small circle to set the base. When you make your choice, Twitter temporarily changes the background color so you can see the results.

8.  Click a spot in the inner square to set the gray component color. You can also drag the small circle to set the grayness. Again, Twitter temporarily changes the background color so you can see the results.

 9.  Click Save Changes. Twitter updates your profile with the new background color.

Twitter tips--Applying Theme Twitter Profile


facebook tips,facebook tips and tricks,twitter tips,twitter tips and tricks,Applying Theme Twitter Profile

Applying a Theme to Twitter Profile

Your fresh-out-of-the-box Twitter account sets up your pages to use a collection of colors and 
images that are the same for all new accounts:

  The page background is light blue.

  The page background shows faint cloud-like images.

  The sidebar uses a light green background.

  The sidebar border is a slightly darker green.

  The links are a darker blue.

  The text is dark gray.

Taken together, these half dozen items comprise the profile’s theme. Happily, you’re not stuck with 
the default theme. If you want to give your Twitter profile a different look, you can apply one of the 
dozen prefab themes that Twitter provides, or you can take an even more customized approach by 
choosing your own theme components.The next couple of sections take you on this theme road less traveled, but for now here are the,

steps to follow to apply a predefined Twitter theme:

 1.  Sign in to your Twitter account.

 2.  Click Settings. The Settings page appears.

 3.  Click the Design tab.

 4.  In the Select a theme area, click a theme that looks 

5.  Repeat step 4 until you find a theme that suits you.

Twitter tips--Setting Twitter account Picture

Setting Twitter account Picture

If the eyes are the windows of the soul, your Twitter picture is the window of your account
Sort of. To see what I mean, check out the list of Twitterers.See the picture in the lower right corner? 
That’s the generic image that Twitter displays when a user hasn’t taken the time to choose 
his or her own picture.

Of course, no one’s going to put a gun to your head to force you to put up your own picture, but that generic image is rather lame, and it tells folks that you haven’t got your act together enough to spend the couple of minutes that it takes to set your own picture. Even better, choosing your own picture is a chance to have a bit of fun.

 Most Twitterers use simple head shots of themselves, but a large percentage use something else 
entirely: a cartoon character, a caricature, an animal, a logo, or whatever. Feel free to let your imagination run a bit wild here.Once you’ve settled on an image that suits your style, 

follow these steps to add it to your profile:

 1.  Sign in to your Twitter account.

 2.  Click Settings. The Settings page appears.

 3.  Click the Picture tab.

 4.  Click Browse. If you’re using Safari, click Choose 

File, instead. A file selection dialog box 
appears.

 5.  Choose the file you want to use, and then click Open (or Choose in Safari). You can 
use either a JPEG or a PNG file, and the maximum size is 700KB.

 6.  Click Save. Twitter updates your profile with the new image.

Twitter tips--Filling In Twitter account Profile Details


facebook tricks,fb tips,facebook and twitter and digg tips and tricks
When you created your Twitter account, you only had to specify three things about yourself: your name, the Twitter username you preferred, and a password for your account. That made the signup procedure blessedly quick, but it doesn’t give folks much to chew on when they access your profile.

Fortunately, Twitter lets you fill in a few more details after your account is set up, including your time zone, your Web site address, a short bio, your location in the real world, and the language you prefer. Of these, your Web address, bio, and location are the most important because they appear directly on your Twitter home page (as does your real name), so anyone (even non-Twitterers) can see them.

Here are the steps to follow to fill in these profile details:

 1.  Sign in to your Twitter account.

 2.  Click Settings. The Settings page appears.

 3.  Click the Account tab.

 4.  If you want to adjust your real name, edit the Name text box. Remember that other Twitter users usually   rely on the real name to find people, so don’t be shy about using your full name (although remember that you only get 20 characters to play with here).

 5.  If you want to change the e-mail address that Twitter uses to communicate with you, edit the Email text box. Although you may be tempted to use a fake address here, stick with a legit address to ensure not only that you get notifications from Twitter, but also so you have the option of resetting your password if you
forget it (as I described in last post link).

6.  Use the Time Zone list to choose the option that most closely matches your time zone.

 7.  If you have a separate Web site or blog, use the More Info URL text box to type the address.

8.  In the One Line Bio text box, type a short description of yourself. Somewhat oddly, Twitter gives you 160 characters here; limiting this field to 140 characters would seem more in keeping with the Twitter vibe, but there you go.

Give a bit of time and thought to your Twitter bio. When people are deciding whether to follow you, they look at your recent updates, for sure, but most folks also glance at the bio to get a sense of who you are. If your bio is uninspiring, people might think your tweets will be, too. A bio that portrays a sense of whimsy or fun is always welcome in the Twitter sphere.

9.  Use the Location text box to type your city, state, country, GPS coordinates, or any combination of the four (up to 30 characters).

 10.  Click Save. Twitter updates your profile.

Twitter Tips- Deleting Your Twitter Account


facebook tricks,fb tips,facebook and twitter and digg tips and tricks
I have the feeling that you’re going to love Twitter, but it’s also true that microblogging isn’t for everyone. The constant pressure to answer the canonical Twitter question “What are you doing?” may simply become too much after a while. If taking a short break doesn’t help (I’m talking about a few days or even a few weeks, not a few minutes), then you can walk away and move on with your life. 

You could opt to let your account lie dormant (it is, after all, free), but if there are updates you want to get rid of, or if you don’t want new people to follow you, then you should delete your Twitter account.

Of course, it could be that you love the whole Twitter thing, perhaps even to the extent that you’ve created multiple Twitter accounts. Lots of people juggle multiple Twitter identities (I have two, myself ), but it requires lots of logging in and out, and lots of extra work updating and maintaining each account

If it all just gets to be too much, you might want to delete one or more of your accounts so you can finally get some sleep at night.


-If you need to go the multiple-account route, then I strongly suggest using a third-party tool that supports multiple Twitter accounts, such as twhirl. See Chapter 8 for a look at some of these powerful tweeting tools.-

Fortunately, unlike a lot of online services that bury their account removal features in some obscure nook or cranny of their site (or, worse, require you to call the company to have your account terminated), Twitter makes it nearly painless to delete an account

Here’s what you do:

 1.  Sign in to your Twitter account.

 2.  Click Settings. The Settings page appears.

 3.  Click the Account tab.

 4.  Near the bottom of the page, click the Delete my account link. The Delete page appears, which asks if you really want to go through with this.

 5.  Click Okay, Fine, Delete My Account. Twitter deletes your account.

Did you click the Okay, Fine, Delete My Account button and then immediately regret your rash decision? Not to worry, because Twitter actually keeps your account in limbo for six months. If you change your mind within that time, you can get your deleted account restored with almost no fuss.

 1.  Direct your nearest Web browser to http://twitter.com/account/deleted.

 2.  Use the text box to type the username or e-mail address associated with the account.

 3.  Click Restore my account. You’ll receive an e-mail message that offers a link, and you click that link to restore your account.Yes, it is really that easy, providing you restore it when your account is still in that limbo period.

Twitter Tips- Resetting Your Twitter Password


facebook tricks,fb tips,facebook and twitter and digg tips and tricks
Resetting Your Twitter Password Okay, so you’ve been on vacation for a couple of weeks, or your nose has been grindstone-bound while you finish off a few projects, and so you’ve been away from the Twitterverse for a bit. It happens even to the most dedicated Twitterers

You return to the login screen and, doh!, you’ve forgotten your password. You try all your old favorites, but no joy. You’re locked out of your Twitter account!Fortunately, all is not lost. You can ask the kind folks at Twitter to reset your password, which will get you back up and tweeting in just a few minutes. 



Here’s what you do:

1.  Send your Web browser to https://twitter.com/account/resend_password. The Forgot your password? page appears.

 2.  Type your Twitter username in the text box. You can also type the e-mail address that you associated with your Twitter account.

 3.  Click Reset my password. Twitter ships you an e-mail message (Subject line: “Reset your Twitter password”) that includes a link to a password reset page.

 4.  When you get the message, click the link. Your default Web browser pops up and takes you to the password reset page.

 5.  Type your new password in the New Password and Verify New Password text boxes.

 6.  Click Change. Twitter resets your account with the new password.

Twitter Tips- Changing Your Twitter Password


facebook tricks,fb tips,facebook and twitter and digg tips and tricks

When you forged your new Twitter account,you had to specify an account password,and Twitter is security-minded enough to rate your password on-the-fly:Weak, Good, Strong, or Very Strong. If you settled for a Weak or even just a Good rating, you might be having second thoughts and feel you’d sleep better at night with a Strong or even a Very Strong password.

Conversely, you might be wondering what’s the big whoop about a Twitter password? After all, it’s just your Twitter account. It’s not like you’re exposing your finances or national security secrets to the world (I’m assuming here you’re not the Secretary of State). 

True enough, but it’s also true that Twitter accounts have been hacked in the past, with the accounts of Britney Spears and a Twitter staffer (who was using the password “happiness,” which is about as weak as they come) being the most notorious.

Facebook Chat is cool, at least it allows you to send instant messages to online Facebook contacts. However I’m not really a fan of the chat bar being at the bottom of the page,what if I’ve left Facebook but still wants to remain chatting with my Facebook contacts? If you are using Firefox, you can place the Facebook Chat at the sidebar.

Step 1

Look for Bookmarks on the top navigation. Select Organize Bookmarks.

TRICK--Create your business page on Facebook Registration – So easy a caveman could..well, you get the point.


There are two ways to create your business page on Facebook; in conjunction with your personal profile, or as a standalone page. This guide will explain how to set up both.

"I am already a Facebook user, but I want a page for my business”

To add a business page to your existing profile simply log in and look for the account tab in the upper right hand corner of the page. The drop down menu for this tab will have a link for Application Settings.

trick in facebook,facebook background,manage facebook chat,chat with friend,trick manage facebook,block incoming email,facebook friends photos,gmail and yahoo,facebook fullpost display,friends photos displayed,transfer orkut photos,trick in facebook,facebook background,manage facebook chat,Create your business page on Facebook

Under the application settings, look for another drop down menu on the right side and click “Authorized”. Once selected, Facebook Ads and Pages should now appear at the top of the list.

trick in facebook,facebook background,manage facebook chat,chat with friend,trick manage facebook,block incoming email,facebook friends photos,gmail and yahoo,facebook fullpost display,friends photos displayed,transfer orkut photos,trick in facebook,facebook background,manage facebook chat,Create your business page on Facebook

Click it and look for the “Create Page” tab. From now on, when you log into your personal account, Facebook Ads and Pages will be an easily accessible option located on the navigation column underneath your profile picture. From here, just follow the steps for first time Facebook users.

trick in facebook,facebook background,manage facebook chat,chat with friend,trick manage facebook,block incoming email,facebook friends photos,gmail and yahoo,facebook fullpost display,friends photos displayed,transfer orkut photos,trick in facebook,facebook background,manage facebook chat,Create your business page on Facebook



“Brand New Users – Set up a Business Page Like This”

Start by visiting Facebook.com. On the right side of the page you’ll see an area where you can sign up for a personal Facebook. Underneath the text fields there is a small link that reads “Creating a page for a celebrity, band or business”. Click this link and select the tab that best describes the nature of your business.

Choose from a variety of options, including: Automotive, CafĂ©, Pets and Store. If none of the options are a fit, go with “Other Business”. Different settings provide unique information fields you’ll be able to fill out later which pertain to the specific nature of the business category. Make sure whatever you select is a
classification you’re happy with; at this time Facebook does not allow page owners to edit this setting.

trick in facebook,facebook background,manage facebook chat,chat with friend,trick manage facebook,block incoming email,facebook friends photos,gmail and yahoo,facebook fullpost display,friends photos displayed,transfer orkut photos,trick in facebook,facebook background,manage facebook chat,Create your business page on Facebook

In the name field type the name of your business. Wait, not so quickly! This field is pretty important. Pay special attention to wording and spelling as this will be part of how people find you and you will not be able to edit it later. If you’re the owner of “Joe’s Waffle Shack” you don’t want to go down in Facebook history as
“jois waffle shck”. This is not the same as your vanity URL, which we’ll discuss later.

Click the box underneath the field to delay having the page published right away.We’ll get to the publishing part later. This will give you a chance to look things over before making your site “live”.

 Though you won’t be able to edit your selections if you find a mistake, you can always start over. Better to start over before you’re published, than after you have thousands of fans, or the profile is more developed.

Finally, finish the security prompts to prove you’re not an information seeking robot and click “Create Page”. Hold on, we’re not done yet. The next page will ask you if you already have a personal Facebook page. Click whichever applies. If you do not have a Facebook account, proceed to fill in the required information.
After a quick email confirmation, you’ll be redirected back to Facebook and see something like this.

"Behold the glory of a fresh Facebook page!Congratulations, the hardest part is over"

Okay, so maybe it isn’t so glorious yet. But you’re on the right track. Just a few more steps before you’re a (viral) marketing power house.Before we take your page to the next level, it’s important to note that you should stay away from two of the tabs in the upper right corner before you have any fans. “Create Your Profile” and “Settings” are incorporated in the interface for personal Facebook pages and will convert your business page to a personal profile

f those tabs are filled out and activated. All of the editing for your business page can be done either from the main page, or by clicking on the “Facebook” logo in the upper left corner. Clicking the Facebook logo will toggle between your page view and the administrative panel of your site.Now, let’s get to customizing!

Facebook Usefull Tips and Tricks

A lot of people post and post away on Facebook and never get the results they had hoped for. Whether it’s not getting new fans or not getting anyone interacting with them, it’s just not making business happen. We all want great brand ambassadors, right? Did you ever consider that maybe your posts just aren't getting to those people that will be your brand ambassadors? Here are some tips on how to change that.

1-Set a username:-


If you go to Facebook’s (username) page, you will get a screen that looks like this:

trick in facebook,facebook background,manage facebook chat,chat with friend,trick manage facebook,block incoming email,facebook friends photos,gmail and yahoo,facebook fullpost display,friends photos displayed,transfer orkut photos,trick in facebook,facebook background,manage facebook chat

From here you can change your personal username (if you haven’t already) or you can choose a page from the menu to pick your page’s username. You should do this, because it makes your page more sharable. If you don’t, you will be telling people to either search for you on Facebook or give them a url that is not easy to remember. Make it short and make it memorable and you can spread the word about your great page much easier.


2-Ask a question:-

Facebook has this lovely little thing called an algorithm. It decides just how many people will see your posts. Yup, not all of your fans are seeing your posts. Facebook uses a few factors when deciding if fans will see a particular post. The first is engagement. Are people liking it? But more importantly, are they commenting? If you post about this Thursday’s happy hour with just the details, your fans will just acknowledge it and move on with no reason to act. If you post about the happy hour and ask which of the one hundred beers at this particular bar are you going to try first, suddenly your fans have something to react to. And suddenly more people see your post. Win-win.

3-Post frequently:-

The other major part of the algorithm is frequency of posts. At a bare minimum, you have to post every other day. Otherwise, your fans will not see all of your posts. Better yet is trying to post every day. The easiest way to keep up with this kind of demand is to create a calendar ahead of time and write out your posts, along with any links, media or tags that you will have to include. Remember, there is too much of a good thing. You will know if you are posting too much when your fans stop interacting with you and yes, that will mean your post will no longer be seen. Play with it and find your sweet spot. But, to be honest, anything more than two is probably too much.

4-You can only post one event at a time:-

I cannot stress this enough. I get so many event invites it’s ridiculous. Sometimes five at a time from one page. As soon as I see that, I just reply no without even looking at what the event is. Look at what you are trying to promote. Would it be better served by a like button? Or maybe it’s just something you can post about? Most likely yes and yes. Events are overused and are not as effective as you think. A Facebook like button flies a lot faster and will probably give you the mileage you want. But if you absolutely have to do an event, only do one.

5-Links are customizable:-

You probably know that you can pick what picture you use when you post a link, but did you know that you can change the text too? It’s a nice trick to have in case you’re posting a pdf or any link that doesn’t have good SEO information (if it’s your site, fix that). It’s also nice to have when you want to call attention to a part of an article that maybe doesn’t get mentioned in the description. To do this, all you have to do is click on the text that is generated when you input the link. So you can take a link about online safety.

Pretty cool, huh?

6-Post via Facebook:-

This is my controversial advice. There are lots of reasons to do it. You can’t tag people and pages when in an application, links don’t appear correctly, etc. I could seriously go on all night. But I actually have a better reason: Your post may not be seen. Here is what I saw under a Facebook post today.  

trick in facebook,facebook background,manage facebook chat,chat with friend,trick manage facebook,block incoming email,facebook friends photos,gmail and yahoo,facebook fullpost display,friends photos displayed,transfer orkut photos,trick in facebook,facebook background,manage facebook chat

Do you know what I saw when I clicked on it? Posts from five pages and two friends. I honestly just thought most of those affected by this never posted. Apparently they do. I just never see it. A lot of us spend a lot of time railing against those that tweet via Facebook. Well, guess what. The reverse is true too. And I hate to tell you guys, but this is what happens when you use Networked Blogs or other such programs to post your blog posts to Facebook. Oh and Hootsuite and Tweetdeck? They do it too! You’re shorting yourself and your fans by using these programs. Take five seconds and just do it in Facebook.

7-You can remove posts:-

 Sometimes people post things on your page that are just inappropriate. This is your page. You set the rules. I suggest removing any inflammatory posts or any obvious spam. Beyond that, keep the others and respond where appropriate (and it’s almost always appropriate). To remove posts, all you have to do is hover on the right corner of the post. An “x” shows up and you can identify the post as spam or just delete it. So, if you currently have your wall closed to comments, you just lost your reason, so open it up now.

8-Do not constantly change your page’s picture:-

This is one of my biggest pet peeves. I’m a content curator. I’m looking to take your great press and use it elsewhere so that more people know about how awesome you are. In doing that, I usually scan through Facebook looking for the people and pages that provide the most content for me. I’m not looking at names. I’m looking at pictures. So, in other words, if you keep changing your picture every two days, I’m going to miss you and I’m going to bereally annoyed by that. Normal people who want to interact with you are doing this too, but to a lesser degree. Once again, you’re cheating yourself out of engagement. Keep it consistent and/or recognizable.

9-Highlight your fans:-

 This is one of my favorite tricks. If done correctly, it drives your fans’ friends to your page. If done incorrectly, no one sees it. If you are a DMO, I would start with a tourism business of the week. Tag them in the post and also put the link of their Facebook page into it (the picture makes it prettier). What happens is that the business will be happy that you highlighted them (good relationship builder) and they will, in turn, post about it (good fan base builder). Once you have a great fan base, then you might want to consider highlighting your fans that might come for a visit. However, this gets trickier since you can’t tag them. They won’t be alerted to the honor and might miss it. But it is something to play with and might get people looking for your posts.
