Face to Face redefined
Facebook is a great way to find people from you past. It’s also a great way to keep in contact with family and friends. People can post events and pictures. They are not limited to 140 characters a post, but not able to write a novel either. It is like the cyber pony express; you join and get an email address through face book. Then you can write emails and send photos to others. You can also chat with family and friends all over. It’s a great way to get the word out on a business, like Target or Alex’s Lemonade Stands. Keep in mind that likes on a page, doesn’t necessarily mean they are a fan of the page. It tells you how many people like a page for a business or hobby. Company or brand pages get likes, followers, or fans. A personal page does not operate like that. You can monitor the activity on pages by seeing how many friends they have and how many have commented on a post.
Linked In is the professional form of Facebook. I have a page that I just updated after this class. I don’t get on it often. Linked In is a great way to showcase your skills and expertise. It is a good way to have a social network to help you find a job. People may approve or endorse you saying they vouch that you do know about a topic or job. You have to watch who you connect with to be sure you know that person. As well you want to make sure you know they are not out to harm you by distributing negative things about you. Companies are also on Linked In. Social Networking is a great way to get the word out and free in most cases!
