OK, so after a few friends asking me to put my blog on Facebook because it would be easier to follow, despite my not wanting to add yet another social media site to visit regularly and figuring out how to to not mix my personal FB page with my blog page, I decided IT WAS TIME!
A blog is similar to a business in many aspects, especially if you want to grow, build your brand, and gain more readers. You have to make it as accessible as possible, right?
In the article that the image above came from, it stated that 93% of marketers use social media for business. And with all the social media sites available today, Facebook takes the cake! Go Mark Zuckerberg!
I actually really enjoyed The Social Network movie that shows how Facebook came into our lives and has never left!
While the social media site often annoys me with the ridiculousness of people posting stupid things, quitting and then coming back, and just the general overflow of TMI… it is still quite mind blowing how ‘Facebook’ has become a regular part of almost every person’s vocabulary!
In my recent trip to Punta Cana, many of the workers were obviously Dominican Republic and spoke mostly Spanish. My sister and I were talking with one of the waiters and we were surprised when he said to find him on Facebook. Not sure why I was surprised, I have friends on FB that I used to work with in Ocean City, MD who live in Russia, Hungry, Ireland, and Nepal! Facebook is everywhere!
These Facebook graphics are funny… and I just spent way too much time reading them!
But anyway, back to important things! Please LIKE my Facebook page for Shh Fit Happens because everyone knows if people ‘like’ your page you are important!
Also, if you are a blogger or have a business, I thought this info-graphic below was really interesting:
