You are on Facebook - Now what

Many of you have a facebook account but are at a complete loss as to how to use it for your local business. Other than building a fan page, you can also become fans of organizations within your area. Once you are a fan, their updates will appear in your newsfeed and you can join in a conversation or just be aware of any upcoming events to which you may want to contribute.

To find Organizations:

Log into your account

Type keywords into the 'find people and more' box in the upper left hand corner. The key words should be the name of your city, county, region or state as well as an industry term like "plumber" "business" or "Education"

Facebook will return results to your search people first. At this time look to the left hand side and you will see a list that starts with all results...click on the word 'pages'. This will narrow your results down to fan pages that fit within your criteria.

One by one click on the pages that interest you and click the "Become a Fan" button at the top of the page.

Their updates will now show in your newsfeed bringing what's new with them to you.
