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.
