Some Interesting Things to Post on Facebook

interesting things to post on facebookAre you looking for some interesting things to post on Facebook? If you are using Facebook to network and help find potential business partners, you definitely want to get some attention!

Engaging your Facebook friends and building mutually beneficial relationships begins with providing interesting content that reflects you and your philosophies, as well as glimpses into your everyday life.

Facebook is an incredible marketing tool when used properly. With one billion plus users worldwide, the potential for reaching large numbers of people who might be interested in your products or services is awesome.

It all begins with building relationships though….and always remember when friending people on Facebook that they are real people just like you. Have your mindset right. Many of the people you friend will not be interested in your business. Don’t think of your mission as just prospecting and qualifying, but rather think of it as expanding your network and meeting a lot of new friends. You can benefit from building relationships with people on Facebook, even if they never join your business.

So building relationships is the key. But…have you asked yourself…what do I say or post in my status updates that will engage people and attract their attention?

Bear in mind is that online communities like Facebook reflect the traditional offline world. There are real people just like you behind those billion screens, and it’s important to remember that when you choose what to share in your status updates.

When looking for some interesting things to post on Facebook, here is a rule of thumb:

If you wouldn’t say it or share it offline, don’t do it on Facebook either. Think of it as entering a room full of people at a party, or dining out with friends. It’s interesting and you do it because you want to be around people and share some fun times together.
