One of the features of Facebook, an excellent product that has helped people and changed the way they connect with family and friends online – pictures! Facebook is hosting more that 10 billion + photos, more than any other site online. The feature creates an easy way for people to share photos and connect family and friends with photos.

2009 03 25 facebook 02 300x225 Facebook Pictures, Do You Know How Powerful They Are?If you have not started using this function now would be a good time photos are a very powerful tool that many people use. “In many ways Facebook is to photos what YouTube is to videos.”

Here are 3 of the many ways to use the photo function in Facebook…

You can share fun, whether you take the photos yourself of find great photos of others, you can post them on your wall so that others can share in the fun. My computer man Michael Dropkin is always sharing fun photos and videos with me, I remind him to share the joy and post them on his Facebook wall. They are a way to demonstrate what you care about and a little piece of who you are.

When you attend events and you do attend events right? Take pictures of the people you meet and the speakers, preferably get someone else to take your picture with the speaker. Post these pictures on your Facebook wall and “tag” the other people who are in them. When you “tag” someone in a picture it will show up on their wall too, a super easy way to share a picture with them. You will not have to send a special email or message to let them know you got the pictures posted, it simply shows up on their wall, how easy is that!

“I learned that we can do anything, but we can’t do everything… at least not at the same time. So think of your priorities not in terms of what activities you do, but when you do them. Timing is everything.” -Dan Millman

Of the many new changes that have happened on Facebook over the last few months my favorite so far it the updated version of scheduling posts.

BN Blog Post Facebook Scheduling 263x300 Facebook Changes Make it Even Easier I see many benefits of scheduling posts on Facebook, the biggest is you can  post when your fans and followers are on-line.  Not just when you are available to create a post.  Our fans all keep schedules different from our own, most of us don’t have the time to sit and post on Facebook all day.  However we definitely want to take advantage of the timing information we receive in our Facebook insights and post when the majority of our fans will see our new content.

For all of your different marketing campaigns you can develop your strategy, create your content and post all at the same time.  Many people find, me included, when you go back to something the message can take on a slightly different tone or feel.  We create all of the post for each campaign at the same time, whether they be for Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn.  We are all in the same frame of mind and that shows in all of the posts we create.  Our message is consistent.  It is a work of art to sit back and watch your campaign roll out.  You don’t have any of those last minute jitters, should I or shouldn’t I send out this last post!

Scheduling your posts can result in more engaged fans.  And we all know the benefits of engagement on our edgerank, Right?  When you schedule your posts you can post more often over a longer period of time.  This means you will be in front of your fans on a very regular basis.  You can keep an eye on your Facebook Insights and fine tune exactly the time of day you post in order to increase that engagement even more.

Facebook has a function called poking. You will find it on the left hand side underneath the picture of the friend you wish to poke. You simply need to click on the word “Poke FirstName”. Facebook will let you know what you have done just in case you clicked the button by accident.

You are about to poke Donald. He will be informed of this on his home page.

What is poking and what does it mean? Remember when you were a kid and you used to poke someone to get their attention? Well there are two points of view about poking on Facebook. Of course those who like and those who don’t!

2013 12 27 1149 300x190 What Does It Mean to Poke Someone On Facebook? Facebook poking can be just a simple hello, Hi I was thinking about you and just wanted to let you know. The person who dropped by your house when you were not home, but left a note to say they came by. Sometimes when we have absolutely no contact with someone we believe they have forgotten about us or even worse, don’t care. The Facebook poke can simply let someone know they are remembered.

It can also be to remind someone of something. Perhaps they were going to send you something or do something for you or even the other way around. You simply want to let them know they are still on your radar and that you remember or to jog their memory.

ShoulderTap1 300x199 What Does It Mean to Poke Someone On Facebook?

Like that tap on the shoulder you receive in a crowd; you turn around wondering who in the heck would do that to you and lo and behold there is an old friend!

Facebook allows you to poke someone who is not your friend. Perhaps you are wondering if they would say yes to a friend request, maybe you can give them a little poke to see if they would go over to your wall and send you a friend request.

Just for fun, I love to poke my young niece just to let her know that I am thinking of her.


Then there is the insistent poking. Remember when your children were young and they would be on ya for something, “can I Please, Please Please??” They would not give up or give in until they got what they wanted.

Remember back to when you were a teenager and just to bug someone you would just keep poking them with your finger? “Did Ya? Did Ya? Did Ya?”. I personally remember when this happened between two boys and it would end up in an argument or a fight. These memories are quite unpleasant.

How and what you think about poking will have an impact on whether or not you will use the Facebook Poke.

Facebook has been on the move again, with even more Facebook Changes.

As a Facebook marketer I believe I am going to like this one.

Here is a quote from Facebook…
This week, a small number of people will see video ads for the new film ‘Divergent’ begin playing as they come into view in News Feed on mobile and desktop. Here’s how it will work:

Rather than having to click or tap to play, videos will begin to play as they appear onscreen – without sound – similar to how they behave when shared by friends or verified Pages. If you don’t want to watch the video, you can simply scroll or swipe past it.
If the video is clicked or tapped and played in full screen, the sound for that video will play as well.
At the end of the video a carousel of two additional videos will appear, making it easy to continue to discover content from the same marketers.
On mobile devices, all videos that begin playing as they appear on the screen will have been downloaded in advance when the device was connected to Wi-Fi – meaning this content will not consume data plans, even if you’re not connected to Wi-Fi at the time of playback.

AND if you don’t want to watch the video it is as easy as just scrolling on by!

We all know that pictures are critical on Facebook, now with auto play for our videos in the newsfeed we’ll be taking that just one step further.
