Facebook Fan Page Review-Gurus for Hire

This entry is part 5 of 11 in the series Facebook Fan Page Reviews

Do you need a Guru? This informative and innovative fan page named Gurus For Hire might be the answer to your Guru needs. As soon as you enter the page you are able to see the expertise of the techi behind the page, Kevin Davis.

He is the second person in the Blog Challenge who is using the powerful “Welcome Tab”. This tab allows you to put in html code plus more. Kevin’s page tempts you with a engaging opt in opportunity. Of course I did not want to be left out. I want those tips that are offered exclusivly for those who “like” this powerful page.

His wall is the best I have ever seen. He has included an image with his contact information plus an offer for a free consultation. Now, just studying the things that he has done on this page is a course in itself.

So, enough said. My fellow babyboomers go and soak up the information on this Fan Page. You will not regret it!

PS Kevin I am waiting for you to add more videos to your excellent video tab on Facebook Fan pages. (A se;fish request)

Help! I Don’t Want to Share With ALL My Friends on Facebook

Someone recently said, ” I don’t like sharing something on my wall t hat goes to ALL my friends.” That person is not alone in their concern. I learned how easy it was to create targeted lists on Facebook. A focused list will separate your “I just completed my speech for the Rotary” from “Hey guys the family reunion is coming up so get your tickets.”

Just check out the mini tutorial below.

1.  Go to the left side navigation panel while in the HOME TAB of  Facebook  and click on MORE

Create Custom Facebook List

Create Custom Facebook List

2.  Click on the Option to CREATE A NEW LIST

Create New Facebook List
Create New Facebook List

3.  Create a name for your new list. Then go page by page to select Facebook Friends you want to include in that list. Click on CREATE LIST.

Facebook List
Create Facebook List

4. Once you have created the list you can assign your Facebook updates to the list of your choice.

Click Status Update on Facebook

Don’t forget to click  SHARE! Then tell me how you did!

It is wise to pay attention to the lessons from this story. However, don’t run away from social networking. We can embrace it as long as we do it right. Well, at least that’s my opinion. What do you think?

Facebook-25 Tips

Just finished reading this excellent post on Facebook Tips from a news feed on AOL. Most of the tips relate to social aspects of the site. Duh, it is a social networking platform. But I was most impressed with the fact that you can set up a webpage on Facebook!

They also share the applications that you should or should not download. I am still not excited about posting on folks walls but that’s probably why I never became an Artist. But my husband wrote on the walls a lot when he was young. And yes, he is an Artist.

Ok, enough ramble check out the Facebook Tips.
