It Starts With Facebook

Building your networks online can be a lot of fun, once you understand how some network platforms and communities work. I've been avoiding one of the BIG ones for quite some time now... and today, I decided to take the plunge.

You probably rightfully guessed by the headline of this mini post that I'm referring to Facebook.

At first, I found it a bit confusing... not quite sure how to find friends through this medium. However, once I discovered the Find Friends feature where you can upload a contact list and/or load your email address book, things went far smoother.

Within 2 short days I had my profile set up, sent out invites to those not yet on Facebook, connected with some people I hadn't "seen" in a VERY long time and loaded three photo albums.

Hint -- I didn't publish 2 of the albums.


For the sake of having "new" content when I don't have time to go and put anything on, I simply saved the albums without publishing. I'll be building about 6 more albums the same way... Then, when I don't have a lot to say, I'll just publish one of the albums.

There is an important reason I'm "getting involved" with Facebook now.

I'll explain more when I tie it into some important networking/SEO techniques that I will be building on in future PowerTips.

For now, I recommend if you haven't already grabbed your own free Facebook account, you might want to do it today. You will quickly see how it applies to massive marketing and SEO boosting.

Until then, see you soon!
