Have you ever walked into room - let’s say, for a social gathering - and you had no idea what to do?
Where do I lay my jacket.
Do I tip the person at the door?
Where in the heck do I stand?
We’ve all been in situations where we’ve asked ourselves those kind of questions. Heck, I still get confused at some casual dining restaurants over tipping and whether or not it’s appropriate to do so.
Well, that same uneasy and uncertain feeling can sometimes extend to our online social gatherings too.
I’ve talked to enough business owners and entrepreneurs to know that properly interacting on these social networks like Facebook is something that a lot of people have to learn on their own.
Basically, the plan is to “feel our way around” until we get it right.
That strategy might be okay if you’re just using Facebook for personal reasons only. However, for the active professional or solopreneur, that isn’t the best approach to take.
You, as a business owner, are now putting your brand and your reputation on the line.
And remember, social networks are viral by nature. Inadvertently send out one spammy message and your good name could be damaged in a matter of minutes.
With all that in mind, I decided to do a “laid back” video (VERY laid back) talking about some of the DOs and DON’Ts of using Facebook for business. Enjoy the short clip and let me know what you think.
Once you’re finished, tell me some of your DOs and DON’Ts regarding Facebook by adding them in the comments section below.
