If you’re a blogger, you need to be on Facebook. It’s just that simple.

It’s the largest social network in the world, and it’s a place where people are constantly sharing content — it’s a breeding ground for bloggers to share links and market themselves.

But you need to do so wisely.

It’s not like Twitter or Digg or Reddit. The rules of Facebook are simple, but important to follow.

The Blogger’s Guide to Facebook

First up, you need to create a Facebook page (right after creating your own personal profile). Once you’ve done that, you’re probably wondering what you should do. How should you be using this social network to help your blog?

Fear not. Guidance is here.

Facebook is a place to hang out with your readers. Like a party, it has a laid back vibe, where people like to mingle with others and have a good time. It’s not necessarily a place to have a intense debate or deep discourse.

Consider Facebook an opportunity to extend the reach of your voice through a condensed version of what is normally offered on your blog.

If you’re unsure as to how that all plays out practically, here are three different aspects of posting to consider before you hit the “Share” or “Like” button.

Sharing content

The primary purpose of your Facebook page should be to inform readers of your new blog posts and drive traffic back to your site. Here are some tips on sharing your posts:

  1. Post the link manually. Do this rather than using a third-party app. When you post via Networked Blogs or even Twitter, your post is compressed with all other third-party posts into one link in the news feed. Not only is it easy to overlook, but it’s impersonal, and Facebook is all about being personal. Not to mention, Facebook apparently discounts content that is added through a third-party service.
  2. Offer a teaser. Give your readers a good reason to click through. Simply posting a URL looks lazy.
  3. Images equal click-throughs. So be sure to include an image (a good one) in your original post to grab your readers’ attention in the news feed.

You can also use Facebook to share content from other bloggers. But, remember:

  1. Share posts from others sparingly. Readers follow you to follow you. It’s not the same as Twitter where you are constantly promoting others.
  2. Let readers know why you consider a link important. Saying “this is cool” isn’t enough to get me to click on it. And it’s probably not enough for your readers, either. Come on, you can do better that.
  3. Tag others. This alerts them that you’ve shared their work, and also shows up as a post on their wall and yours. Be smart with this, as it can get annoying and look like spam.

You can also share things that wouldn’t necessarily merit an entire post, yet are noteworthy and of interest to your readers. This might be an image, a YouTube clip, a news story, or even a quote.

Interaction with readers

In general, Facebook users are an entirely different group of readers than those who regularly comment on blogs or interact via Twitter.

Some readers are simply more comfortable interacting on Facebook, because they see it as more personal. In that sense, it’s best to involve them personally on your page.

Here are some ways to generate personal interaction with your community:

  1. Ask open-ended questions. Give the readers a chance to share what they think about something related to your blog topic.
  2. Make use of the “Question” feature on the Share tab. This allows you to create a fun poll.
  3. Give the readers a chance to share something about themselves by offering a conversation-starter. It’s a nice way to get to know your readers and show that you care about their opinions.
  4. Whet the appetite for content you’re working on. Offer tidbits of information that elicit a personal response. Reader responses can also be an excellent way to develop ideas for future blogging topics.

Etiquette

There are plenty of ways to ruffle feathers and offend others on Facebook.

Here are a few rules from the (unwritten) Facebook Code of Conduct for Bloggers:

  1. Respond ASAP to any comments, questions, or info left on your wall. When you don’t respond, you appear inaccessible and uncaring.
  2. Share things about yourself, but not too much! Keep it professional, but also fun. Think of things you’d share in an office lunch room, not what you’d share at your family game night.
  3. Follow the readers’ lead on how often you should post to Facebook. Somewhere in the range of two to three times a day, at various times of day, is the ideal maximum. This depends on your niche and the degree of reader interaction you can generate. The last thing you want to do is post too often, because then you get annoying and risk being hidden on the news feed, or worse yet, un-liked!

A final word

If you’re new to Facebook, it will feel a little awkward at first, much like your first day of junior high.

When all else fails, watch what other bloggers do. Follow their lead, but make your page and presence your own. Be true to yourself and your niche.

Take your time and don’t expect immediate results. Tweak your usage as a response to what the readers enjoy.

Most importantly, have fun!

So, bloggers, let’s hear from you…

    I’ve been thinking about creating a page for a while. Now everything is connected to my personal profile. 

    I learned very quickly to not ignore what happens when it pertains to my blog and my facebook profile. I would ignore comments in the past to try and get people to make sure that community was happening on my blog and not on facebook. I was wrong. And I have some good friends that don’t bother reading my blog anymore because of it.

    • http://popparables.com Keri

      Chris…I highly recommend Jeff’s post about why you SHOULD have a FB page for your blog.  I think you’ll be immediately convinced >> http://goinswriter.com/facebook-page/

    Fantastic post, as usual. 

    I created a Facebook fan page about two weeks ago. It’s growing slowly and I’ve used it to announce when I have a new blog post up, but I was never completely sure how to use it otherwise, so these are some really great tips. Thanks!  

    • http://popparables.com Keri

      Avalon..I’m so glad it helps!  Best of luck making it work for you.  :)

    • http://goinswriter.com/ Jeff Goins

      It can be a great way to amplify your voice, Avalon.

  • http://www.JanetOberholtzer.com Janet Oberholtzer

    Great info!
    I love facebook and interact with others on my personal profile all the time. 
    I’ve been thinking about starting a personal page also … for my blog and my book that will be released in Sept. I’ve wondered if having both a personal profile and personal page ever gets annoying … have you discovered any drawbacks of having both? 

    • http://popparables.com Keri

      Hi Janet…I highly recommend that you read Jeff’s post about why should you create a FB page for your blog >> FacebookPage

      As for having both…I {more or less} keep them separate.  My personal FB page is for personal interactions and my Pop Parables FB page is for blog interactions.  Of course, I will from time to time post about my blog on my personal page if it is personal (i.e. about my family, new venture, etc).  As to whether or not it’s annoying…I think having both reduces the chances for being annoying.  Some of your friends may not want to see things about your blog {what’s wrong with those people!?}, and it could be annoying for them. 

      If you are going to stop posting about your blog on your personal page, be sure to let your friends and family know that you’ve created an FB page for your blog/writing so they don’t miss the updates and they can “like” your page. 

      Another thought…I noticed that you have a blog, do speaking engagements, and have a book coming out.  I’m not sure what you should “name” your FB page, but perhaps going the way of Jeff (Jeff Goins, Writer) may be useful or you could do Janet Oberholtzer, Speaker.  You might want to tinker around with that a bit.  Or, you could JUST use your first and last name, but that may get confusing with your personal page.

      p.s. You have a BEAUTIFUL blog!

      • http://goinswriter.com/ Jeff Goins

        I think you should totally do that, Janet. You might base it on your book, even. Btw, here’s the post that Keri referenced: http://goinswriter.com/facebook-page/

      • http://www.JanetOberholtzer.com Janet Oberholtzer

        Thanks Keri! More good info to process. 
        Thanks for the compliment on my blog … I do like the design also, it was done by the talented team at Bittersweet Creative! 
        “Because I Can” is my book title and has kinda been my blog title, but hasn’t been very pronounced on there … but that will change now with the book coming out. We are adding BECAUSE I CAN to my website header. I’ve been thinking of naming my Facebook page BECAUSE I CAN … since that has been and will continue to be my message for a few years (outlining 2nd book now – which will probably somehow use that in the title/subtitle also). But I wonder if my Facebook page should also have my name on it … would “BECAUSE I CAN – Janet Oberholtzer” be too long a name?

        • http://popparables.com Keri

          That’s a tough one, Janet.  All I can offer is my personal opinion, and I am not a marketing guru by any means.  I understand that your title is a big part of your message, but using Because I Can, Janet Oberholtzer is much too long.  You definitely want something concise and easy to remember.  I like “Because I Can”, but your name makes it much more personal and definitively YOU. 

          You might try polling your readers and seeing what they have to say?

          Another tidbit of info, once you get at least 100 “likers”, you cannot change your FB fan page name/url.  So, choose as wisely as you can!

            Perhaps Jeff can shed some light on this one. 

  • http://www.sundijo.com Sundi Jo Graham

    Great advice. Thanks. I schedule my posts, because I’m not always around the computer. This has me thinking. 

    • http://popparables.com Keri

      Thank you, Sundi!  I understand that posting manually poses a difficulty if you are not always at the computer.  But, I think you’ll find it well worth the effort if you are able to do so manually.  I have also heard (but have not tested it myself) that HootSuite does not appear in FB the same way as most other 3rd party apps, meaning it doesn’t get lumped together with other posts.  You could try that.

      • http://www.sundijo.com Sundi Jo Graham

        I actually use Hootsuite, but I still think I may try your approach and see if the results are different. 

        • http://goinswriter.com/ Jeff Goins

          Sundi – I was in the same place several months ago, but trust me when I tell you that it’s worth the extra minute or so it takes to long onto Facebook. Sharing links and posts get a LOT more interaction when you do this. @MichaelHyatt:twitter taught me that.

  • http://www.eileenknowles.blogspot.com Eileen

    Some great thoughts.  I started a facebook page a couple months back.  It’s not very big yet but I do post my blogs posts there daily and will also link to other articles that I come across and feel passionate about.  I only link to my post once a day because I fear what you discussed…becoming of nuisance. 

    • http://popparables.com Keri

      Thanks for reading, Eileen.  As for becoming a nuisance…you might see that as your number of “likers” grows on FB, you will get more interaction and might be able to post more often.  I say that you follow the lead of your readers-if they interact often and with much fanfare, try increasing your posts.  Also, if you are able, gauge when your readers are most often on FB.  For me, it’s early morning, dinner time, and late in the evening.  I try to hit FB at those times as people are much more likely to interact when something is “fresh”. 

  • http://jamsmooth.com Jamsmooth

    Hi Keri. Good post! I’ve been doing much of what you suggest. Let me ask you this. Oftentimes I get a little frustrated when I get comments on FB rather than my blog. I feel like it takes that engagement, momentum and traffic away from my blog. I’ve requested that my friends on FB comment on the blog yet they usually don’t. I even use the Disqus comment system so they don’t have to log in to comment. What do you think about this?

    • http://popparables.com Keri

      Thank you, Jamsmooth!  Personally, I would be happy about the interaction on FB.  The more feedback you get there, the  higher it drives your status/share in the Newsfeed, meaning even more exposure for your blog, and hopefully more people sharing your content.  For me, the key is creating and nurturing community in general via my blog-so whether that comes in the comments, via FB, Twitter or even email, it makes me happy! 

      But, I sense that you are really wanting more community interaction specifically in the comments.  Have you tried adding a question to the end of your posts?  I only looked at a few, but I noticed you didn’t have a call to action there.  That might help. 

      • http://jamsmooth.com Jamsmooth

        Thanks for the quick reply! I will start asking for a call to action and see what happens. 

  • David C Alves

    I’m a low level, niche, value-blogger with content ahead of its time. Facebook has been the absolute, number one feeder for my blog. Twitter comes in second. And you’re right, they are very different venues. Facebook friends and family will always care what you have to say, if your “friends” are real friends. That’s why Michael Hyatt says to keep your friend numbers low. I limit to those who are really friends or acquaintances I’ve made through the years at speaking engagements. Works for me. Twitter seems very impersonal and plastic.

    • http://popparables.com Keri

      David…sounds like you’ve had some great success with FB.  Do you use a personal FB page or a “fan page” for your blog?

      • David C Alves

        I use both. But most of the traffic to my blog is from my personal page. Those who know my walk and my life are following my blog. Weird though, they don’t ever leave comments at the post, rather they comment on FB under the link to the post. Do you find this true as well?

        • http://popparables.com Keri

          Some of my friends and “likers” only interact on FB.  I think it’s just more personal for them.  Also, some of my readers and commenters (on the blog) can be a bit intimidating because they’re so dang smart.  So, some people would rather interact on FB where those commenters do not interact. 

          If you want to transfer the interaction to a more public forum, you could attempt to send your “friends” from your personal page to your FB fan page.  I would start by no longer posting on the personal page, and informing everyone that you’re going to keep the blog posts on the blog FB page.  Surely if they love your blog, they will follow you there and “like” your page.  Don’t forget to tell them to “Like” your page!  Just a thought.

  • http://popparables.com Keri

    Thanks so much for this awesome opportunity, Jeff!  I’m so excited to share what I’ve learned about FB with other like minded bloggers. 

    • http://goinswriter.com/ Jeff Goins

      Thanks, Keri. You’re a wealth of knowledge! I appreciate your sharing.

      • http://popparables.com Keri

        It’s been so fun!  It really is gratifying to write something that could prove useful for others.  I can see how you enjoy the “teaching” aspects of your blog.

  • http://www.betachristian.net Moe

    All of your points are very strong. I also agree that Facebook should be about interaction. Asking questions is good. Also, sometimes being a bit aggressive and shout someone out gets a response. For example:

    “This blog post has (insert tag) Keri writte all over it. What do you think (insert some tags of friends you both know). Guaranteed interaction.

    Great thoughts Keri. Now I can’t wait for the official Facebook PDF guide by Keri Welch. 

    • http://popparables.com Keri

      You so crazy, Moe!  :)  I’m so happy to be friends with you on FB, and that you “Like” my page! 

      • http://www.betachristian.net Moe

        I would have “loved” it if Facebook would have given me that option. :)

    • http://goinswriter.com/ Jeff Goins

      that’s a good idea. i’d buy a copy!

      • http://popparables.com Keri

        Thanks, guys.  :)  I guess it could be a nice little e-book.  Hmmmm

  • http://twitter.com/sarahfarish Sarah Farish

    The category for the Pop Parables Facebook page is “Society/Culture.”  Some blogs I follow are labelled “Personal Blog” – but I can’t find that as an option when I go to the Facebook creation page.  I checked under each category.  Can someone help me find the “personal blog” category, please?  I’d also like help with “categorizing” a blog…personal blog?  society/culture?  writer?  website?  I’ve investigated; there seems to be no rhyme or reason for the categories/labels, so I’d appreciate the help.  Thanks!

    • http://popparables.com Keri

      Hi Sarah…are you attempting to creating a Facebook fan page or personal page?  The options are only available for fan pages.  If you click “edit info” at the top of your profile, the first option you will see is category.  If you select Websites/Blogs, the drop down on the right offers “Personal Blog” as an option.  HTH!

      As for how to categorize, I think it’s totally up to you.  I suppose the category would be most important if you are hoping to get new readers who search for blogs via FB.  I took a glance at your blog, and I would label it a “personal blog”.  I chose “Society/Culture for Pop Parables because those are the topics I blog about.  Does that answer your questions?

  • http://somewiseguy.com ThatGuyKC

    What a great guide! I’m on Facebook personally and also have a page for my blog, but have wondered how to leverage it effectively. I clipped this post to Evernote for future reference.

    • http://popparables.com Keri

      So glad it was helpful for you, KC! 

  • Anonymous

    Keri, great ideas, thank you!!  I have two questions:

    Do you post your blog posts to your Personal Profile page – the original one?  I have more “friends” there since it’s older, but I hate the thought of annoying them with post if that’s why they didn’t “like” the page in the first place.  Or possibly send them two posts if they have liked my blog page.

    Also, it’s so much easier to interact with my page on my IPhone.  Is there a way to make the News Feed of the blog page the default page on your phone?  If not, how do you see the News Feed on the phone?

    I hope these make sense.  I’ve had a hard time (or inconvenient time) using Facebook with my blog. 

    Thank you!!
    Brenda

    • http://popparables.com Keri

      I’m so glad it was helpful, Brenda!  As for posting to my personal page…I did so early on, but I found that once I started ONLY posting on my blog page, I actually got MORE interaction.  As I mentioned to a few others, you may want to consider only posting on your blog page and not your personal page.  You could post a status and a link to your FB fan page letting all of your personal friends know that you won’t be posting there anymore and if they want to continue to get the updates, to please click over to Triple Braided on FB (be sure to tag your FB page for convenience). 

      As far as I know, there is no way to see the Newsfeed from the FB fan page on the phone.  You may attempt Googling it for an answer, but I have been frustrated with this as well.

  • http://annaldavis.wordpress.com Anna L. Davis

    Hi Keri, thanks for the great tips! I recently deactivated my Facebook account, and find that I have better focus for writing and other parts of life. If I ever join Facebook again (I’m not ruling it out forever!) I will make sure to revisit this post for ideas. Until then, I’m blogging better without Facebook.

    • http://popparables.com Keri

      Anna…I just read a bit of your quitting FB series.  I recently wrote a similar series about breaking up with FB.  I’m pretty much off the grid with my personal FB page, unless someone sends me a message, I create an invite, am tagged in a post, etc.  My reasons for breaking up were similar to yours.  However, I do still have my blog FB page.  I really don’t spend a lot of time there, maybe 15 minutes total in one day.  But, the majority of my traffic comes from FB, so I’m still seeing results. 
       
      If you are at all interested, I would encourage you to create an FB page specifically for your writing/blog.  Check out Jeff’s post about why you should have a FB page >> FacebookPage  You’ll find that many of the reasons you quit FB don’t exist in that more professional realm of the social network.  #my2cents

      • http://annaldavis.wordpress.com Anna L. Davis

        Thanks Keri! I’ll check out Jeff’s post and look into creating a Facebook page just for my blog. The irony is that I originally joined Facebook because of writing, but then I got wrapped up in the more personal features. Live and learn, I guess!

    Some great tips here. I would like to second that you should just share a link. Make sure you pull the text from the first sentence of the post, or a teaser phrase in your post in the description. And then make a comment as to what it is and why they would want to read it.

      Hi Carrie…I hope you’ll find it useful!  Best of luck.

  • http://cindyholman.wordpress.com/ Cindy Holman

    This is great information Keri!  I always avoided having another page – since I already have another one for my music studio – but I see most of my blogging buddies have a page dedicated to their blog sites.  How necessary is it if all of them are friends of mine on my personal facebook page and I always link my blog to that – and twitter – and now google+?

    • http://popparables.com Keri

      Hi Cindy!  Necessary?  Well, I guess that really does depend on the nature of your blog and where you want it to go.  But, I think if you read this post by Jeff >> http://goinswriter.com/facebook-page/ you'll be convinced that you should have one.  :)  I find it helpful to separate my blog from my personal page.  I really don’t want to risk being a nuisance to my regular friends and family.  Having the blog page gives them the option of “liking” it if they really do want to read my blog.  Also, I wouldn’t apply these tips to my personal page.  #my2cents

      • http://cindyholman.wordpress.com/ Cindy Holman

        It makes sense Keri – and as I am an “early adopter” I will – “let down my net” :)  Because you say it is important for me to do so :)  Thanks!

        • http://popparables.com Keri

          I will be one of your first likers!  :)  You won’t be able to get a vanity URL until you have 25 likers, so be sure to tweet it and let all your friends and family know you’re “moving”. 

  • http://www.lifeofasteward.com Loren Pinilis

    Keri, this is great stuff. I know that facebook is something I need to take advantage of more and more. Do you find that you use facebook in a fundamentally different way from twitter? Or is it the same model of interaction but just two different audiences?

    • http://popparables.com Keri

      It’s totally different than Twitter, and I do use it in a completely different way.  I see Twitter as a way to share the content of others and to network primarily with other bloggers.  Facebook is much more about interacting with the community of “likers” {readers} and developing a relationship with them, giving them a voice, and sharing more about myself.  It is not often that I share the content of others, unless it is highly relative to my readers.  I would say that it is a different audience than you would find on Twitter.  In my experience, it’s likely that people gravitate to one or the other.  That’s why it’s so nice to give your readers the option of following you on Twitter or FB.  Another thought…FB moves much slower than Twitter.  For many people, it is an easier way to keep up.  HTH! 

  • http://www.jamiesrabbits.com Jamie

    I do so love the completely different audience I connect with on FB (deacons’ wives). However, I stinketh hard at the engagement. Going to take your points to the field and hopefully see some results.

    Question? How much should the tone of your blog be reflected in the tone of your FB page?  For example, Jeff leans on writing so should his FB lean solely that way too? Mine is a humor blog so I’d hope my FB could be more out of the box… And I might be hoping for that since that’s what I’ve been doing.

    Since I’ve already admitted to the bad engaging, I’d like a win.

    • http://goinswriter.com/ Jeff Goins

      Jamie, in my opinion, at the end of the day (nice little cliche there), all you have is your voice. It’s what makes you distinctly you. If I were you, I’d work that into ALL my interactions online.

    • http://popparables.com Keri

      Humor is well liked on FB!  And, I think Jeff hit the nail on the head-whatever you see as your voice, put that out there.  Surely it will unstinketh.  :)

  • http://www.i95dev.com Henry Louis

    Tagging users in a post is a very difficult task to perform. Choosing people from huge list itself is a job. And ofcourse the interaction on the profile needs to be very instant.

    Is Facebook is too big to listen? Like most sites it evolves. I personally use it less now. I would like to know what the stats are since the change. For small business this can be especially challenging and probably a good idea not to go it alone. Facebook is one part of most corporate strategy. Social media is part of the culture now and business should be involved or lose it to the competition. There’s a lot to social media. To get an idea take a look at this top university’s advanced social media training curriculum.

    Thanks for this helpful post. Quick question: can I respond to comments/messages and “like” other blogs from my blog facebook page, A Time to Freeze? I heard that if I “like” other pages as A Time to Freeze, their like number doesn’t go up. Do you know if that’s true? Sorry, I don’t even know if my question makes sense!

    The great thing about Facebook is that EVERYONE’s on it. Twitter and personal Facebook doesn’t quite have as big a reach, particularly if you’re private with your personal Facebook profile like I am.

    So I just started a page with the help of my friends’ encouragement. Now I don’t know what to do with it!

    Thankyous for the super helpful tips. I’ll keep this bookmarked as I fill up my page.

    Hey Jeff

    I am just reading your AMAZINGLY powerful book – “You ARE a Writer” – and was ecstatic to stumble onto your blog post! *BIG smile*

    Facebook is my second home, and, regardless of the persistent negativities against this largest social media platform, I believe in its power. So thank you so much for these pointers about how to use Facebook to promote your blog!

    Kit
