Here a few ideas that could be helpful to users of your Facebook pages.
- When announcing events, include detailed date, time, and location info. This will help a global audience keep their bearings. If you say "yesterday," "tomorrow," "next Sunday," etc., it's more difficult for people to know what's when and where. Example:
Come to our Grand Opening on Sunday, February 10, 2013 from noon-3pm at 4747 Pacific Highway, YourCity, YourState, USA. Details at [link to a web page goes here].
- Include full links to specific web pages if you want people to visit those pages. (Facebook will make your links clickable after you post the message.) Example:
Instead of writing:
"See our Free Trial page to sign up for your 10-day Free Trial Website",
try something like:
"Visit our Free Trial page at http://pcartsonline.com/fastwebdev/no-risk-trial to sign up for your 10-day Free Trial Website".
- If your site has multiple administrators, always sign your posts with your name or initials. Examples:
your post goes here -- EO
your post goes here -- Elizabeth O
- Pin To Top any important upcoming event. And, for those whose Facebook pages have multiple administrators:
- If you notice a past event still pinned to the top, feel free to unpin it.
- Do not unpin events that are yet to occur unless you feel the new event is much more important.
- Try to keep sentence and paragraphs short for people who prefer to skim rather than read every word and have trouble with long passages of very small text. You can easily create line breaks while composing a message by pressing the Shift+Enter key. Press Shift+Enter twice to create a blank line.
