Facebook and privacy concerns, the two go almost hand-in-hand. Or at least they used to, but perhaps not anymore. In an attempt to quell privacy concerns, Facebook has announced that users can now login to third-party apps without having to share their private data. This aims to put an end to the massive phishing and other such kind of scam that involve extracting personal information by 'rogue' third-party developers.

11 Comments so far

How Facebook Newsfeed works?
Facebook Pages today are faced with a much tougher challenge of keeping their boat afloat owing to the evolution of the Facebook newsfeed algorithm. Facebook weighs in a lot of quality factors, which collectively decide how many people can a post reach. This, coupled with the ever-intensifying competition for feed space means that Pages have to fight for every inch, like literally! Following up on our recent post about Negative Feedback and its impact on Reach, we'll discuss the whole newsfeed ranking process in a bit more detail.

How To Add an Address or Map To Your Facebook Page?
For any business, having a physical location can increase its worth manifold, and help bring in more customers who are 'nearby' - locals. Associating a physical address with your Facebook Page essentially makes it a Place (as long as your Page is in the Local Business category - you can change the category of your page later on). Places give users the ability to “check-in” and tell their friends where they are and what they’re doing. Places have their uses.

And any type of business can benefit from them, from business-to-consumer businesses to local theaters, and even public speakers, musicians etc. But why exactly should these businesses or individuals invest in Facebook ads?

14 Magical ways to increase "People Talking About This" count on your Facebook Fan Page

14 Comments so far

People Talking About This
Have you ever given much thought to the "People Talking About This" metric for Facebook pages? Not a lot of people know what it is exactly, and I don't blame them. This metric looks shaky and inaccurate at best - changing all the time. But there's a lot more to it than meets the eye. It sounds like it calculates the mentions of a topic across the social network, but in reality, the metric only counts direct interactions with a page. Knowing about this metric, and knowing what type of activity increases it, can improve your Facebook marketing efforts by reaching out to your extended circles.

What is EdgeRank and How Is It Calculated?

10 Comments so far


Facebook EdgeRank
Whenever there's a need for delivering dynamic content to users, there's a certain algorithm involved. The simplest of these delivers the latest content, as is the case with blogs and news websites, or social networks like Twitter. But that doesn't always cut it, because sometimes, users want more than just the latest news. They want the top and quality content, as is the case with Google Search. And not unlike Google's Search algorithm, Facebook has its own algorithm for ranking posts, and displaying them on your newsfeed. And this algorithm is called EdgeRank.

EdgeRank Checker study about hashtags
To Twitter and Google Plus users, hashtags are nothing new. They are known to have been useful marketing tools for many businesses. But Facebook is another matter. Facebook introduced the fancy hashtags back in June this year, a bit late in the offering. Too late perhaps, as one latest study suggests that Facebook hashtags might not be doing you much good. In fact, they might not be doing any good at all! The Facebook analytics service, EdgeRank Checker's findings conclude that posts with hashtags don't have an edge at all over posts without them!

What Are Facebook Hashtags and How To Effectively Use Them?

3 Comments so far


Everything about Facebook Hashtags

If you have used Twitter, then you might be familiar with #hashtags. A #hashtag is basically a word or a phrase which is prefixed with a #. These #hashtags basically turn topics and phrases into click-able links. Twitter, Tout, identi.ca, Tumblr, Instagram, Flickr, Google+, all support hashtags. Recently Facebook also added the support for hashtags, and naturally, a lot of the users out there don't know what to do with them. The concept basically carries over from Twitter, so Twitter users who use Facebook know what they are. But for someone who has never used Twitter in their life, the hashtag can be an enigmatically cool-looking phrase which apparently is becoming 'cooler' and trendier by the day. Here's all you need to know about Facebook Hashtags.

Facebook Places

With a stalling stock, and tough competition from peers, it seems Facebook is now getting a bit more than it bargained for. This probably explains why they're hard at work improving their service, and introducing more features such as Graph Search, video and voice calling, and some brand new marketing features, the list is long, but doesn't end there. Facebook is introducing a new location tracking feature, which will help Facebook friends who are nearby to connect to each other. Additionally, businesses will be able to reach out to customers and promote offers to users based on their location. Apparently, this is a big change. But are we ready for this kind of thing?

Remove deactivated Facebook profiles
Facebook might be the largest social network in action today, but it isn't without its flaws. A lot of changes made by Facebook seem to cause problems for the users, especially the ones made in 2012. First, the Timeline, then the ticker and the ability of friends to add you to groups without permission. Then there's this problem regarding deactivated and deleted profiles in your friend list. Since the changes made, people started to notice old profiles (and new) that had been deactivated in their friends list. Now this isn't a problem, but it sure clutters up your list and inflates your number of friends. You can easily find and delete these profiles from your list and clear up things.
