Facebook Profile Viewer: Maybe, just MAYBE, this one is real :D

Ok, we used to go through the Who/What/Where/When/Why when it came to this sort of Facebook post.  I don’t think this one requires such an explanation.  I just can’t believe how much of this, well, crap is still floating around on Facebook.

If you’re a business and you’re looking for alternatives, here are some recommendations:


  • Twitter – If you have a Facebook page, chances are you have a Twitter account as well.  Twitter is a bit more streamlined, as far as content goes.  You can still run into the occasional bogus phishing link or childish drivel, but Twitter is a bit more of a straight-forward approach to broadcasting information.
  • Google Plus – Some scoff at G+ and think it’s a no man’s land.  That simply is not the case.  Businesses and individuals looking for a better way to share – e.g. Hangouts, Circles, search result tie-ins, comment formatting, etc. – are using G+ to their advantage.
  • Reddit – Reddit is a great place for news, information, and sharing with others.  Network with other users in topic-specific communities called Sub-Reddits.  Spend a week on Reddit and you’ll start to realize you “saw that last week” as you watch the news or scroll through Facebook.
  • Pinterest – Pinterest is becoming a more and more popular way to share anything from clothes you like, to architecture.  Consignment businesses can really utilize Pinterest’s ‘pin’ feature to share new outfits that were recently consigned.
  • Blog – If you’re a business and you provide a service or sell products, you really should have a blog.  With a WordPress-based website, you can easily post to your blog and keep your customers in the loop.  Adding new content keeps your site rich with content, which can boost search results.



I've been helping consignment & resale store-owners since 2003. I started The Computer Peeps in February of 2010. After 16+ years of working with consignment stores, I understand the unique challenges consignment & resale store-owners face. From electrical issues in old building or strip malls, to advocating for them when their consignment software keeps crashing. I now manage over 600 computer systems, servers & websites for store-owners all across North America and I am the developer/programmer of Peeps' Software -- the only software written FOR consignment & resale stores specifically.
