As I promised yesterday, today I’d like to share with you some of the differences and similarities between Facebook and Linkedin. It is important to understand what each social network has to offer you, and the differences between the two. Some of the things I list below are things that came up in the seminar I attended (see yesterday’s post for details), and I also added my own tidbits. Please read below to learn about some of the different features that Facebook and Linkedin have to offer.
– B2B & B2C (business to business and business to customer).
– Business Casual.
– Able to create a Personal Profile Page (can be made private to only share certain information with non-friends).
– Able to create Lists to separate your Facebook friends, and choose who is able to see certain updates.
– Able to create a Fan Page for your dance studio (do not have to
Specify # of employees).
– Able to suggest your dance studio’s fan page to friends, add photos, videos, RSS feed from your blog, join our e-mail list tab, notes, and create events and invite people on Facebook to attend.
– Able to add your Facebook Fan Page box, or a “Like” box to your website or blog.
– Able to create and join groups (please note that some groups are private and you will have to be approved first in order to join).
– Able to see page insights, and statistics for who your fans are, their location, language, age, gender, etc.
– Able to receive updates on how many fans you gain each week, along with the number of interactions for your Fan page.
Please keep these things in mind when creating a profile page, or a company page for your dance studio, and feel free to post any questions here that you may have about using Facebook or Linkedin to promote your dance studio.
