If you are using Facebook to create meaningful connections, build your brand, find your customers, share your unique message to the world, or to do anything important, then you should be very careful about some common Facebook mistakes. If you are just a casual user, using Facebook just as a time-pass, then you might skip this post. With more than 1 Billion user base, Facebook has made it possible for anyone from anywhere in the world, to find the right customers /audiences for what they are offering. But while trying to market/ sale/ promote their products/ services/ ideas most people forget the fundamental fact – Facebook is a ‘social’ network. And being ‘unsocial’ is the worst mistake you can commit which leads to a complete failure in your Social Media strategy. So what are the Facebook mistakes you should avoid?
You must have heard the saying that “You don’t become a human just after you are born. You need to develop certain qualities to be called ‘human’ unlike other living species”. I think same is true for being a ‘Social Networker’. One can not be called ‘Social Networker’ just because they use some social networking sites. One need to understand the true meaning of the terms ‘social’ and ‘networker’ to be qualified for that. Honestly I am learning & practicing being more social and a better Networker for quite a few years. And today I will introduce to you one of my teachers in this subject – Shilpadi (she is too humble to admit, but I’m always learning from her). She is among the very few persons I’ve met, who regularly meets new people, maintains good relationship with them, connects people with each other, takes the online relationship to real life meetings. And trust me, it’s easier said that done.
