BIOGRAPHICAL JOURNEY OF AN ASPIRING MUSICIAN
Here is a short quiz to see if you really know your Facebook friends.
- When you look at your list of friends, are there names you do not recognize?
Yes No My Answer: YES
2. Do you have Facebook friends that you have not communicated with in over a year?
Yes No My Answer: YES
3. Have you added more than two friends on Facebook in the last month?
Yes No My Answer: NO
If you responded to any of the questions like I did, THIS BLOG IS FOR YOU. If all of your answers are just the opposite of mine, you are my new Facebook hero.
According to dictionary.com a friend is:
A person attached to another by feeling of affection or personal regard.
A person who is on good terms with another; a person who is not hostile:
Wow! Not hostile? Who needs enemies when you can have friends that are not hostile? In order to really connect with your Facebook friends, I have created a quick and easy formula to rectify the problem. It’s called: 4-3-2-1-CONTACT!
Here’s how it works… On an average day, I can dedicate 20 minutes to Facebook. That’s 20 more minutes than I have been spending, so that should help immensely. Here’s the formula:
4-COMMENTS ON FOUR POSTS: Spend 2 minutes a day commenting on newsfeed posts.
3-DIRECT MESSAGES: Spend 8 minutes a day sending 3 direct messages to people you have not communicated with in a great deal of time. Simple!
2-FRIENDS: Spend 3 minutes a day and hit ‘Find Friends’ and find two people that you think you would enjoy having as a friend. Hit ‘Add Friend’ and see what happens.
1-INTRIGUING POST: Spend seven minutes a day creating a post that tells your friends you are still alive and like to interact. I still haven’t quite figured out how to do this. Here are a few of my sample posts to show you what has worked for me and what is embarrassing.
4 PEOPLE REACHED-I LOVE THIS VIDEO…ONLY 4
87 PEOPLE REACHED-THIS WORKED PRETTY WELL-
BUT WHO DOESN’T LIKE THE MAMAS AND THE PAPAS?
2,363 PEOPLE REACHED- ONLY WORKED BECAUSE
I PAID FACEBOOK GOOD MONEY TO SEND MY POST
So, there you have it.
4-COMMENTS ON 4 POSTS:
Isn’t it hard to believe that in only 20 minutes a day on Facebook, you could accomplish the following in:
ONE WEEK! ONE YEAR!
- POSTS: 28 POSTS: 1,456
- DIRECT MESSAGES: 21 DIRECT MESSAGES: 1,092
- FRIENDS: 14 FRIENDS: 728
- POSTS: 7 POSTS: 364
Wow! The possibilities for connecting are staggering! So, the next time you are feeling friendless on Facebook, remember the secret formula: 4-3-2-1 CONTACT!
