Nobody wants to be spammed – ever. Unfortunately, with the increase of company fanpages on facebook, there is a greater potential for spam and posts saying – ‘Please like our page.’.
People can only like a total of 500 pages, so, although it sounds like a lot – they need to be selective. Sending out random requests for page likes may do more damage to your brand than you realize, so you need to be savvy about it. The key, as I’ve mentioned copiously in previous posts, is content.
You need to be creating discussions that draw people in, asking questions, making observations in the current political or economical climate – stuff that people would be intrigued by, and possibly want to engage with. That’s how you build online relationships – by building into your readers, by taking an interest in them, not just what you want to communicate.
Once you have some valid content, here’s how you share it… In your own personal status, or on a public interest page where your readers might visit, you post a teaser about your post and then type the “@” symbol in front of your page identity.
As you type the name of what you would like to reference, a drop-down menu will appear that allows you to choose from your list of friends and other connections, including groups, events, applications and Pages. Soon, you’ll be able to tag friends from applications as well. The “@” symbol will not be displayed in the published status update or post after you’ve added your tags.
When tagging from a page, you can only tag groups and pages, not people.
