TIPS | Four Quick Facebook Ideas

The following information had been shared originally/posted onto the CharlieDesign Facebook Page. They have now been collated here, for ease and later referencing. Enjoy!


TIP ONE | Check your Facebook Page post settings, things have changed. The image is of the DeadRed WineGroup admin area, demonstrating the new settings that help you control your page.


This one is new and the most curious:

“Only show posts by DeadRed WineGroup and friend activity on your Page until reviewed by an admin”

You need to check this box if you don’t want posts by others to be publicly visible on your Page until you “Allow on Timeline” from the Activity Log. This is called CONTROL.

And remember, people visiting a Page can always see:
– Posts by the Page that haven’t been hidden
– A list of their friends who like the Page
– What their friends are saying about the Page
– Recent posts to the Page made by others


TIP TWO | The About section at the top of your page (where mine says Public Relations) is driven from your own page’s Info section. It depends how you initially set the page up (category selected) as to what displays. Typically, it mimics what used to display under the page image.

TIP THREE | Consider the four squares (at the top of the page ie where mine starts with the image “writer”) under your cover banner image. Use them. Switch to the most important items you want people to see first. Photos, notes, apps, events… not “likes”.

TIP FOUR | Never has it been more important to include your logo or watermark on photos posted… keep the image yours by claiming ownership through “markings” or loose it via google search or Pinterest. Be warned. Photographers in particular!! Further, and as watermarking has become so important, I had been watching out for something to make life easier for “Mr Regular Business Owner”. Found this tool for download, that looks quite good and produces very easy on the eye results. The examples page demonstrate how a watermark should look – subtle but there:

HISTORY | Remembering our first #twandup session

Using the online conversation starter, and micro-blogging site Twitter, we conducted a stand up comedy event in 2010. We believe it was a world first. It was called “twandup10“. Our first effort with #twandup10 was successfully exhausting and we all made some valuable observations, reservations and hesitations about running another! Something we are considering though. Running another that is 🙂

In essence however, the event runs with official “Twingetwits” (online twitter comedians) sharing one liners in theme whilst being heckled, who are then judged by vote on twitter at the end of a thirty minute session. Judging was based on Twingetwits having displayed interaction, humour, judgement and an ability to engage, amuse and be retweeted!

The #twandup10 tweet stream got messy, busy and fast, but it was #fun!
