On July 24, at the Lethbridge Lodge, I’ll be sharing some social media information at the eWomenNetwork Lethbridge Chapter’s “Accelerated Networking” Luncheon.

Grow Your Business by Building Community with Facebook Business Pages

17 million Canadians use Facebook on a regular basis.  If your business isn’t represented on Facebook, it needs to be! By increasing your visibility, building relationships, and establishing your expertise with a Facebook Page for your business, you can grow your online community, and ultimately your whole business.

At this powerful event you’ll learn:

  • Fun ways to use Facebook to highlight your business
  • Keys to building an online community around your business
  • New ideas about how and why to use Facebook for business

You DO NOT have to be a member of eWomenNetwork to attend!

Please join me and some fantastic women in business for a great lunch, and a time of networking.

We’re just learning about the new Facebook e-mail address feature, but I put together a quick video to let you know some of the details we ARE aware of: how e-mail address works, and how you can change the privacy settings for that e-mail and other e-mail addresses on your profile. Check out the video!

She’s a Facebook guru who really knows her stuff, but she’s very real and personable and down to earth. A GREAT trainer with a passion for what she’s doing!

AW, I’m blushing! It’s not every day I get called a “rockstar Facebooker” by Mari!

This course with Mari was amazing, and I learned so much! When you get to complete such fantastic continuing educational opportunities with the gurus who are as knowledgeable and as much fun as Mari, it really is a pleasure! GREAT training, SO much learned, and I’m SUPER excited about where it all goes from here!

Remember: We GET to Use Facebook for FREE!

Programs and Platforms abound in the internet world, from WordPress, Photobucket, Twitter, Online forums, to anything you see in a webpage anywhere on the internet. All of those programs have to LIVE somewhere, and they live on servers, special computers made to hold the programs that run the webpages. We say they are “hosted on servers”.

facebook is freeFacebook is a membership type website, with 901 million monthly users worldwide, and we are all able to join for FREE! Facebook, like any other website, is a running program, hosted on a server somewhere (several servers, to be exact). Basic Facebook USE is free, but there are guidelines around how the service is to be used. It’s important to remember: people and businesses use Facebook, but we don’t own it, operate it, or maintain it. It takes a certain amount of technical infrastructure behind the scenes to run all the things that make Facebook function as we see it on the screen – storage space, bandwidth on the internet connections, and a bunch of other stuff I don’t know one iota about.

a basic internet diagram

What I do know is that with 900 million users, there has to be a TON of stuff happening behind the scenes with Facebook that we can’t see, just to keep the website from crashing. Take those 900 million users and add all the pages that they represent, plus all the developers with their various applications. The amount of storage alone for all of that is astronomical, without the other details.
