Why should I convert my Facebook Profile to a Page and How?

Facebook Pages

If you have spent any time on Facebook you surely know the difference between Personal Profiles and Pages. In case you don’t know the basic definition of a profile, it is a personal space on Facebook that you can share thoughts and events about your life with your friends. A page on the other hand usually represents a Business, a Place, a Thing or anything that is not a person. Sure there are pages for high profile people and celebrities, but normally a person would just create a profile. So by now most people that use Facebook know the difference, […] Read more »

There is NO ATM PIN Number Reversal System!

Since yesterday I have seen this hoax once again being passed around Facebook. The gist is this: If you should ever be forced by a robber to withdraw money from an ATM, you can notify the police by entering your PIN in reverse. For example if your PIN is 1234 then you would put in 4321. The ATM recognizes that your PIN is backwards from the ATM card you placed in the machine. The machine will still give you the money you requested, but unknown to the robber, the police will be immediately dispatched to help you. This information was […] Read more »

Not to mention how could I ever remember that if I wanted to tell someone what the link is? What if […] Read more »

Are you missing friends on Facebook? PART2

fb-friends

Since my last blog post about missing friends on Facebook was posted, Facebook has changed once again. If you seem to be missing some of your friends status updates you need to go and fix your new subscribed setting. Yes, even if you are friends with someone does not mean you see all of their posts and updates. (Sometimes that could be a good thing I guess.) Either way to fix it is pretty simple although it will take a bit of time if you have a lot of friends. The easiest way is to go to your own profile […] Read more »

Comment as yourself on Facebook Pages you admin

Facebook Pages

Today I found a feature that I didn’t know existed. Yes me the Facebook guru didn’t know about a feature! I have many pages on Facebook that I administer, some are mine some I help out with for others. I have always stopped myself from commenting on pages that I admin for others because it appeared that the post was from the page and not from myself. This could be a problem if I said something contradicting what the page was all about or if the owner of the page didn’t like what I had to say. So today I […] Read more »
