Facebook Friday - posting content

Do you have a blog and use the "Link to this post"  or a similar application? 

I like this application to link my post URL to Twitter.  There's also the capability to link to your email, BlogThis!, facebook, and GoogleBuzz.  If you use something like this for a fast way to upload your posts to facebook, be aware that it uploads into your personal facebook page, not your fan page.    

The best thing to do after you post into your blog is go immediately to your fan page and click Share>Link.  Type in the URL of your post, and "Attach".  You should definitely choose a photograph to go along with it, then hit "Share".  After the content is on the fan page, add a comment and "like" it.

I say this because I just finished reading the following recommendation from WPROMOTE Online Marketing :
"To ensure that your content is ‘evergreen‘ and continuing to garner inbound traffic/links, rather than posting a status update (which will be gone from anyone’s stream within half an hour if they have over 100 active connections on Facebook) the recommendation is to post the content (image) and then comment on that and ‘like’ it as well."
If you post on your fan page, the message will immediately show up on your personal page, if you're a fan of your business page.  Now I've heard that Facebook is going to separate our personal and business pages soon.  This might be part of the March 10th update, but I'm not sure.  We'll see soon enough... yes, another update!

I don't know how to use those links or put them on my blog. Another thing to add to my to do list after tax season.

Thank you for the info Deb. I have tried to make a fan page, but I just don't understand how, and can never find it again... ~challenged!

More FB updates March 10th? Thanks, will be on the lookout. When I blog, it auto posts to my FB page and also my Twitter. I set that up within FB. Just easier for me w/only 1 spot to post.
