I’m working like crazy this morning to get all the last minute details together for my free Social Media 101 call that is today at 1pm ET/12pm CT/11am MT/10am PT. It’s sooo hard to decide what to include and what I have to leave out since we only have an hour!
As I’m getting the details all together, I’m also trying to keep up with other stuff, like my Facebook friend requests. I’m sooo delighted to be friends with so many of you! But can I share something with you that slows me down when accepting friends? When I get a friend request, the first thing I look for is a personal message. This says to me that you work in direct sales and you’re interested in the content that I share. That’s my favorite! 🙂 It’s easy to accept you, because I know why you’re asking to be friends.
When there is no personal message, then I click on your profile, to see who you are, and if we have mutual friends. If we don’t have mutual friends, then I look to see if you include a link to your company page. Something that I can associate with a direct selling company.
The problem is, I think that with the latest Facebook changes, your website info isn’t there by default anymore. You have to tell Facebook to display your website info to everyone. And honestly, since you want the most exposure for your business that’s possible, it makes sense to have your website info available as widely as possible.
So here’s how to make your website info available to everyone on Facebook:
- First, go to Account in the upper-right corner of your screen, and select Privacy Settings.
- Next, select Contact Information from the Privacy Settings menu.
- Look for Website in the Contact Information list, and be sure it’s set to Everyone.
That’s it! You can click the Preview my Profile button in the upper-right corner to be sure it’s set up properly.
And if you haven’t yet, I hope you’ll friend me on Facebook. I would love to be connected with you!
