Facebook for Artists
[A palaver about getting the most from the social media giant]
Facebook has been in the news a lot lately. Whether it is about the changes to the site design, the company going public, or the founder’s private life, the site is making headlines in every section of your news feed.
And with all the changes and updates to FB I thought it would be a good time to do a series of posts on Facebook for Artists. I’ve done posts and webinars over the years on Facebook for artists that continue to get a lot a traffic but they are now very out of date. Which is another reason I need to do a series of posts.
So over the course of the next month I am going to be publishing bite size nuggets of information to help you understand the ins and outs of Facebook. And more importantly how you can use FB to market, promote, and build an audience for your art.
I’ll cover everything from the basic functions of the site as well as the important issues of privacy, security, and time management.
With over 900 million users (as of May 2012) Facebook has become an online community so large that it can not be ignored. Many companies, organizations, and artists are finding it to be the number one source of traffic and the best way to engage with their audience.
But on the other hand many people find FB to be very confusing, hard to use, and impossible to find followers on. I’ll work to make sure you are not one of these people.
What Facebook questions do you have?
Use the comment form below to share your FB questions and issues and I’ll write posts to answer them.
Case study volunteers?
I am also looking for artists that would like to have their Facebook page featured in an upcoming Art Palaver post. This can be for anyone looking to tips and advice on how to better utilize Facebook to promote their art. Or it could be for any artists that is having success on Facebook and would like to show off their page a bit.
