As some of you know, I use Facebook a lot.
One of my favourite things about Facebook is how easy it is to connect with friends and fans.
The SuicideGirls Facebook Page currently has over 3 million followers!
“Pages are for businesses, organizations and brands to share their stories and connect with people.”
I have been posting content to my pages (Tita Suicide & CupcakeDuJour) for over a year now, and in that short time, over 5000 like-minded people have begun to interact with each other, and me, on a daily basis. It’s wonderful to see which projects they are excited about, what they’re into, and to see first hand how the content I share is received.
Over the past few years, Facebook have really improved the ways Page admins can interact with their followers. One of the most recent developments is the addition of Private Messaging, in December 2011.
If you send a private message to a Page, you may receive a private message in response. While private messaging has existed on personal profiles for sometime, and is a staple of the SuicideGirls Community, it is a new, and welcome addition to the fraternity of Facebook.
One of the best examples I can think of, is the following private message, sent to me by my new friend Joe.
“Smashed cupcakes on an empty street late at night raise so many questions as to what went wrong??? How could such a travesty occur? Was it accidental or intentional? Is there some kind of extended 5 second rule for street cupcakes?”
