Facebook is arguably the most popular social networking sites in both history and the present. Here are 3 tips to help you make the most of the Facebook log in, sign up, or learn more about the site as a whole.
If you’ve seen the film The Social Network, then you have a pretty good idea of how Facebook was born in 2004 and grew to squash Myspace as the world’s preeminent social networking platform. If you haven’t, then watch it. It’s a good movie anyway. Today, Facebook has redefined the notion of social networking media and includes games, apps, news, companies, Spotify, Instagram, and so much more. However, at it’s core, Facebook is still about connecting friends. Here are some tips to make the best of it:
1. Make a good password
When you’re doing your first Facebook sign up, or at any point a Facebook log in, it’s good to create a strong password. That means not your birthday. Not some orderly sequence of numbers or letters. A strong password should contain a complex of capital and lowercase letters and numbers and symbols. The more complex, the better. And update your password monthly, especially if you’re a Facebook frequent flier.
2. Get to know your profile
A good Facebook profile is essential to getting the most out of the site. It consists of pictures and posts and information about you and your history. Choose a good, beautiful cover photo that describes your interests and/or personality. Make sure your all-important profile picture visibly shows you. Your profile will show information about your career, your schoool(s), your relationships, your age, your favorite sports teams, politicians, movies, etc. It’s like a digital version of you – an extended resume. Make sure you edit out anything you don’t want others to know about you.
3. Be friendly
The purpose of Facebook is to connect. Once upon a time, only users with college email addresses were allowed on Facebook. Now, for better or for worse, anyone aged 13 and up can create an account. That means, your mom, your cousins, your ex-girlfriend’s grandparents, your boss, your students – anyone can log in to Facebook and potentially find your profile. Sure, you may not want some people to “friend” you on Facebook, but then why are you on anyway? Figure out what your purpose is on the site – business networking, finding old friends, keeping up with distant relatives, stalking old lovers, etc. – and utilize your Facebook account accordingly. It can be a valuable asset to growing your personal and professional network.
4. Protect your information
Make sure that you make an effort to protect the information that you use to login and also the information that you share on Facebook. That means protect your password and other login credentials. Don’t share it with anyone. Also, when you’re in Facebook, you can choose to make certain posts private, meaning only available for you and certain others to see and interact with. Make use of these functions as it will be of great benefit to your online presence.
