Why Facebook Fan Pages Are So Great
But since I am a blogger and a photographer, I want to share things with people who might not otherwise find my blog or website. People are on Facebook, so that's where marketers need to be, even if you're just marketing yourself. This is the purpose of Fan pages! I have been amazed at the people who have "Liked" my blog or photographer website's Fan pages that I can find no previous connection to at all. The Water Water Everywhere Facebook page is like it's own little community, separate and distinct from the community of regular readers and commenters here on the actual blog. I can post questions and links and get great instant feedback there more frequently than I can publish whole blog posts. If you want to know what I'm reading regularly? (I read and share a LOT) That's where you find out. Facebook Fan pages were recently updated with lots of new features that I'm still learning about too.
So in short, I think everyone who is trying to actively build a community around their blog should have a Facebook Fan page. It certainly works for me. I would sure love it if you'd go ahead and "Like" Water Water Everywhere to join my awesome community. You can just look to the right of this post, find my Facebook community link and click "Like" without ever leaving here...it's that simple!
So tell me, do YOU have a Facebook Fan page?
