Let’s just say it, Facebook is pretty sweet right? With the ability to connect with people all over the world, Facebook has put us in a place we never thought possible with our relationships. When it comes to building a business online, these Facebook relationships have brought a whole new level of competitiveness to the network marketing industry. But what happens if you’re tapped out of new people to talk to, and your Facebook friends list is looking a little shabby between old high-school relationships and cousins you haven’t connected with in ages? You need new friends right? Here are a few ways to get you rolling under the Facebook radar of perceived shady activity that will get your account shut down.
Join groups of things you are interested in or knowledgeable about. There are a lot of people out there that are interested in connecting with like-minded individuals. Plus it gives you something to talk about with that common interest. Just being active with posting opinions and content, new friends will surely be lining up at your inbox if you know what you are talking about.
Start your own group to attract new Facebook friends. This is a great way to build your friends list. By starting the group, you’ve identified and positioned yourself as the leader first, so new friends will naturally be drawn to you. Be thought provoking and friendsfilter honest with your posts and encourage the same in your group. Just make sure that you are interactive, otherwise your new friends will lose interest and never come back.
The most killer way I have found to grow my Facebook friends list is connecting it with my twitter account. Not in the sense that your posts are identical but with with the direct message feature of twitter. I have automated my outgoing direct message from twitter inviting my new twitter followers to join me on Facebook to get to know each other a little better because the pace is a little slower, and conversations don’t get lost in the feeds.
One big thing about Facebook is that they crack down on blatant advertisers and spammers. Don’t just go blasting out your offer all over people’s walls and group walls. People are there to be social, not sold to. There are advertisers on Facebook that grow their friends lists and fan-pages with Facebook pay-per-click, but that is a strategy that takes a budget and some time to master. These are free strategies that will produce an explosion of new friends if implemented correctly with consistency and a good attitude!
