Two Tips for Tuesday- Status UpdatesJune 1st, 2010

Since most of the world’s Facebook users have decided to stay with the service, it’s only fair that we take the spotlight off the privacy tools for a second. Instead I suggest we dive into a few ways that Facebook let’s you take control of your Fan pages or whatever you prefer to call them now.
- Promote Your Status- Want to promote your most recent brand page and want to do it quickly? I’ve noticed that each update now has the option to “promote”. Clicking on it brings up a ready made ad featuring your page name, profile picture and most recent status update. Edits can be made to targeting, price and duration, but the interesting part in this ad tool has to be simplicity. Now you can find a much larger audience for your fan page and your content with a click of a button.
- Edit Your Links- It’s easy to add a link to your status update with the link tool, but did you know that you can edit it as well? A link brings in the header and first chunk of content on the page as well as the pictures. It’s easy to scroll through the pictures, but if you double click on the header or content that FB has pulled in, you can edit that as well. This can be especially important if the link isn’t being explained well or is bringing in jibberish. With this quick edit, you can make sure all of your links look great!
Well there’s two quick tips to start your shortened week off right. Now if you have decided to trust Facebook for a little while longer, at least you can promote and edit your fan page accordingly.
What are you doing to tweak your fan pages? More importantly, what are you calling your fan pages after the switch to likes?
