I Started a Facebook Page!

screenshot_157For those of you who follow Facebook, I have actually decided to create my own page.  Here is the link to it.

I really don’t know what all the fuss is with Facebook, but I decided to join in the fun too.  So for those of you who do spend time on Facebook, I would like some help in how to use it and keep in touch with you through there are well.

Could you share with me some of your thoughts on how to use it the best? I am really quite clueless.

Wish me luck everyone.

  1. For me, i use mostly to communicate with family and friends abroad. I do have lots of ‘local’ friends in there too and we do use it as well, but it’s still the easiest way to share stories and pictures of the kids with the family. That said, now my family seems to be shifting to Whatsapp for those personal posts…
    It’s also a nice place to share something you like with your facebook friends, like an article, a joke or something. I don’t do that one much, but it’s a very common use.
    Just a little reminder, that I forgot to give to my mom (it was actually her who introduced me to facebook, so who was I at that time to ‘teach’ her anything about it): facebook friendship doesn’t mean much. So don’t be angry with people that do not accept you as friend or unfriend you for any reason, don’t get frustrated if no ones likes a post you thought it was awesome, don’t take offense of shared posts about subjects you may be sensitive too. Sort of like in the blogging community, but on a more public and agile manner… ;o)
    Good luck!

  2. It’s just another media outlet. I play a few games and cross post my blog there. Garry is much more involved because that’s where he keeps in touch with all his old collegues. It’s also another outlet for pictures.

  3. I am a FB user and few monts ago I created a FB page for cross stitchers who love to turn photos to cross stitch charts. They can download the photos for free and turn them to charts. I am not very active there, but the page has about 140 likes so far.

    • There was a time I would have loved your cross stitch charts. I used to do a lot of cross stitching and made my own patterns. Haven’t done it in years though. 😀

      • Maybe you will find some time in the future. Cross stitching is beautiful and I think we can’t fully give up on it ☺

        • I’ve tried it from time to time over the past 10 years, but it didn’t stick with me. If I ever do any kind of needle work it will most definitely be cross stitch though. 😀

  4. It’s a great way to share content with multiple people – but if you want to guarantee someone sees something then it’s best to message them directly because facebook lets fewer and fewer people see your posts as time goes. (there is an option to let you pay $$ to make sure your friends see it, but I’m not paying cash to make sure someone sees my new house announcement or whatever.) most people log on, check their “stream” – which is the long list of posts that everyone else has put up – comments or likes a few of them, shares something they think is funny or cool, then logs off only to come back and do it again later. Mostly it’s a time killer for a lot of people, though there are productive ways to use it, like groups (for instance you might join or make a photography group where people could share photos, or tips and tricks, or even have contests or whatever.)
    You probably follow at least one of those bloggers that posts ten posts a day – one might be a funny photo, one might be what they had for lunch, another might be a rant about their kids, the next is a news article, etc. THAT is what facebook is. It’s like mini blog posts and they can be as informative and focused, or as silly and pointless – as you want them to be 🙂

  5. I don’t really understand what’s the fuss is either even if I’ve been there for at least 8 years 😀 I mainly use it for news and games these days.

  6. I tried to get to grips with it recently but found it frustrating and have just deleted it. I’d managed to post some test words thinking I could edit or delete them but discovered I couldn’t do either. I can see many people really enjoy it and I am sure it will be a great showcase for your images. My main problem was I found myself comparing it unfavourably to here.

  7. Facebook is best used for marketing and promotion. I also use my FB page for Autism Activism regarding my brother Stephen and others with Developmental Disabilities. It is a great way to connect with other artists and photographers. Here is my information and I hope that we can connect soon.

  8. I like to play the slot machine games on there. I put pictures of it but FB is pretty much useless. I do play the slots daily for a few minutes a day. I like Doubledown casino, they give free coins (not real ones daily). If you do decide to play it, I can friend you and send you spins for coins. I am up to 796 million coins on there. It is something fun to do. send me a friend request and I will friend you. Connie Thatcher

  11. Good Luck. I have found it is a place where friends complain about everything and vent about things you would rather not hear. It’s also where ppl who never wanted to talk to you now what to know all about your life, also act like they care. That’s just my opinion. But then again, I don’t eat anything out of the ocean,good luck in the water’s of FB

  12. Much of what I know I learn on Facebook. I keep up with news from all of my cousins who are scattered all over the country, my friends and former students who are scattered all over the globe, our church, various genealogy groups to which I belong, and many other Facebook pages of news media sites, inspirational pages, and special-interest pages. For me, it takes the place of communicating the old-fashioned way through newsletters.

  13. Welcome to Facebook.Over the 5 years that I’ve been on there, I’ve used it less and less because, frankly so many people post so much nonsense and a whole lot of stuff that is not even true. That aggravates me when they post something that’s supposed to be a quote or report an activity by someone who is well-know, but they didn’t check it out to be sure it was factual. I mostly let my Blog posts go up there, and I do check every day for notifications and messages from friends in case I need to respond. Occasionally I visit the Newsfeed page and comment here and there.

    Concerning games, you want to be very careful. Most of the game apps — as well as some of the other specialty apps — require you to let that company have your “friends” list and post in your name. That way they can hound your friends and try to get them to connect with those games as well. It makes most people who don’t play games angry to get all those notifications that look like they came from friends — but which really came from the game companies. I’ve told my FB friends that I don’t play games and I don’t want to get requests. I’ve also told them they should not be giving those companies the right to use their “friends” list to do business with. If they keep letting those companies hound their FB “friends,” I just “unfriend” them.

    My only other suggestion is to get one of your terrific pictures up there as your cover photo right away. You have such great pictures, and I’m eager to start seeing them in your cover. I’ll also send you a “friend request.”

      • Cee, of you go up to the big blue area where the cover picture would go and hover over the top left corner, you should see a little camera symbol. If you click on that, it will take you through the stops of putting on a cover photo. It’s mainly saying you want to do that and then clicking “upload” to go to your picture folder on your computer. It’s pretty much the same as you do on WP. ( If you don’t see the camera symbol, just click on the big blue area, and it should show up.)

  14. I have a personal facebook page and then I have a “photographer” page. My personal page is where I communicate with my personal friends and family. With my photographer page, I have followers like my blog. There I post pictures and can also cross post from my blog. If you want to create a photographer page, go to https://www.facebook.com/pages/create/. I would suggest you monitor who you “friend” on your personal page.

  15. Well, I love Facebook, especially as a way to keep in touch with my college friends that I hadn’t/ don’t see that often! But I don’t have my blog attached to it yet… Or a separate blog fb page… Yet! I’ll send you a friend request, my photo is the same but my name will say Terri!

  16. Mostly I use FB to keep in touch with family and friends that I personally know. Some others, I’ve met through my blog, or on Twitter, and we became real friends. The private message part is real easy to use. I always post my blog post links on there, and I get a lot of views from FB. Guess it depends who you ‘friend’ what you will get in your newsfeed. Lots is silly memes, but there are games to play, if you like that. Good luck with your FB, and I’ll check it and send you a friend request if you want. 🙂

  17. Hi Cee. I started one last year really just to find out what it was all about. I don’t post much, I don’t tell people what I’m having for my dinner and all that. I use it for my photography, and occasionally share things that really grab my attention.
    My advice would be use it sparingly and actively follow those who do same. Unless, that is, you want it to occupy loads of your time!!! And you do seem too busy with your life (and your excellent websites) for that. Kindest regards to you and family. Helen
    Ps I’ll send you a friend request ( and I don’t do that very often! LOL )

  18. It’s a good way to stay in touch with family and friends that live far away and old high school friends. I never went crazy and collected hundreds of friends. And lately I’ve only looked at mine 3 or 4 times a month. A lot of people have used it like the joke emails that used to clog up my email daily. I have to admit that when I see one that I REALLY like I do click the share button and put it on My page. Just be careful and don’t enter too much info on your profile and be very careful about the doing the quizzes because there are naughty people that use them to hack into your facebook.

  19. I’m on FB but I do not post everyday about everything or play games. I use that media to keep in touch with family, friends (real friends in person), ex-colleagues, etc who are scattered all over the world. They keep me updated & vice versa, especially when traveling & we PM to arrange meetings. I also join a few groups of interest like Permaculture & my schools’ alumni. It’s been useful so far & I haven’t gotten addicted, so I think it’s all a matter each person giving it a try & then deciding (in a pragmatic way) what it’s best used for. I have also been very cautious with offering personal info.

      • A question for if I ever try Facebook again after my latest inept (now deleted) attempt – do you have to enter your date of birth? I ended up entering it, though I don’t really like giving that out as it is sometimes used for security questions. Then it published the date in big letters on my timeline and suggest I might like to see things that happened on that date.

  20. I wish you well and hope it meets your needs. I have a personal page, a blog page, and manage a page for my MG group. That being said, I spend an average of 10 minutes a week on there. It reminds me of day time TV and I feel like my brain cells are being sucked out of my head and if you let it, it will take over your life. But, you are pretty savvy when it comes to technology so you will probably put it in its place and use it wisely instead of the other way around. 🙂

  22. I use it to keep in touch with family and friends interstate and overseas and people in my local community.They are the only ones who can see my posts usually. I linked my blogs to it so they will know when I’ve posted something new. I comment on and share news articles and information I think that people I know might be interested in so it’s where I go to rant a bit. I am careful about whose friend requests I accept I like to know them personally or at least know of them through others. It’s handy but I’m not addicted to it thank God.

  23. I have a personal fb page and I have a fb page for my blog – I manage the blog page from my personal page. I like my personal fb page for keeping in touch with friends and family across the globe and for wasting time, it’s really good for that. I also keep up to date with my son’s school, and my running club and other places of interest. You can set up wordpress to automatically link your blog posts to your fb page. I really neglect my blog fb page other than that, but am on my personal fb page more than I should be.

  24. I’ve been on FB for years, but I kinda like the politeness of blogworld, and I’m not mad about the rudeness of FB world. Check your privacy settings are where you want them. FB is good for interest groups, some art and photography pages are excellent- then unfollow all the people who say silly things!
