The Oatmeal put together a GREAT post on How to Suck at Facebook – from your personal profile. Here’s a few tips on how to suck at your Business’ Facebook Fan Page:

  • You don’t have any content on the page, but you tell everyone that your business is on Facebook Fan Page
  • You only talk about your business and how great you are, the events you’re having and why people should buy your stuff – this is a sure way to keep them engaged
  • You update your status with your personal issues, i.e. had a tough time getting up this morning because I was out too late partying last night – great brand management in the eyes of prospects and clients
  • Your profile picture is from your most recent vacation to the Grand Canyon – ya, that trip you took when you told a client you were having elective surgery and couldn’t finish their project on time.
  • You invite your personal friends to become a Fan of your Fan Page…daily – great way to maintain personal relationships

Do you have any tips on how to suck at Facebook? What strategies are you implementing?

Deleting detractors comments is a big no-no in my book. Obviously if they’ve posted something threatening or obscene that can go but, especially in politics, fostering discussion and showing you’re not a soulless automaton goes a long way.

You make me laugh…and think at the same time.

Thanks for the post!
