In a previous post I talked about how to populate your Facebook fan page but when you have that vital piece of information that you want to share, what’s the best way to do it? Should you use the ‘Notes’ application, should you post it in your status update? or should you just post a link?
Status Updates: If you have a short piece of news or have a short announcement to make use the Status bar at the top of the page. It is now possible to allow facebook to update your twitter page so always try and stick to the 140 characters that twitter allows.
Notes: If you have something a bit longer to say use the notes application. You can also add pictures and add tags to a note. It is also possible to import your blog into notes.
Links: If you find a cool link that you would like to share with your fans, or want to share a link to your own webpage click this button underneath your status update. Paste the link in the box provided. If there are pictures in the link you are posting you will be given a choice of thumbnails. Scroll through the thumbnails using the arrows next to the pictures. It’s a good idea to comment on the link and why you are sharing it. You can do this by writing in the status update box above the link. Finally post the link by clicking the add button.
