Facebook’s Fan Page
In my INTE 5665 course called Social Media and Digital Cultures, I was asked to explore the in’s and out’s of Facebook Fan Pages and to then share my thoughts on how I could use Fan Pages to support my social networking and/or instructional goals.
My, my, how things have changed! I stepped away from my blog’s Fan Page when I had my daughter and it’s been very difficult to recover the Facebook traffic I used to have. After doing some research, I realize I’ve caused too much damage to my ranking by not remaining engaged with my “fans.”
Based off of this experience, I knew I did not want to choose this route for my networked learning space. I work for a company that helps small businesses with their marketing efforts and I know how much time and effort you have to put in to stay active and engaged. It’s not that I don’t think it’s worth it though. Someday when I have a life again, I fully plan on jumping back on the Facebook Fan Page saddle (for my own personal use with my food blog)! Until then, I’ll have to let Shakira, Rihanna, and Eminem soak up all the action. It’s too bad I can’t be like the Twilight Fan Page and post only three times in a year and still have over 45 million likes. 🙂
