Ready! Set! Go! Today is the day that business owners will wake up to see the new look of their business Facebook page. Notice I didn’t say final or finished look. Because as we all heard in this scene from the movie Social Network…Facebook will never be finished.
Eduardo Saverin: So when will it be finished?
Mark Zuckerberg: It won’t be finished. That’s the point. The way fashion’s never finished.
Eduardo Saverin: What?
Mark Zuckerberg: Fashion, fashion is never finished.
Eduardo Saverin: You’re talking about fashion? Really, you?
Mark Zuckerberg: I’m talking about the idea of it. And I’m saying that it’s never finished.
Eduardo Saverin: Okay. But they manage to make money selling pants.
There was a time when I thought the most critical statement from this scene was “It won’t be finished.” But today I am thinking that Eduardo Saverin’s closing line “Okay. But they manage to make money selling pants” really is the more important message for a business Facebook page. Your business Facebook page should contribute to your bottom line in some way…it certainly should not be a liability. Come to think about it, I covered this topic two years ago when I posted: Nine Tips For Managing A Business Facebook Page.
Today I thought I would do two things:
- Show you how our Webconsuls’ Facebook page looks today, because we will start updating it and you can follow the progress by “liking” us today and staying tuned.
- Share a great blog post from Copyblogger. How To Create A Cover Photo For Your Facebook Timeline. Read this post carefully, as it tells you what the cover photo may “not do” according to Facebook’s terms. Also if you read some of the comments, you will notice that people have shared a link to their Facebook page with their new Cover Photo.
Now, just so we have a record, you know like a real old fashion scrapbook: Here is a snapshot of Webconsuls’ Facebook Page, March 31, 2012.
