Even if you’re a frequent Facebook user, and think you’re pretty savvy, you might be missing a few hidden features! Some of them might just be fun surprises, but some might come back to bite you if you’re not careful!
1) Your edited posts have an easily visible history! Just by clicking on the word “edited”, viewers can see every version of the post that has ever existed. If you’ve made a major error (especially one that’s offensive), it’s far better to just delete the entire post and begin again (or not!). This applies to both personal AND business pages! Yikes!
2) You have another inbox for private messages! It’s called your “other” inbox and it’s right next to your regular inbox, but you won’t receive alerts when you get messages in it. Depending on your personal profile settings, any message that comes from someone that you aren’t friends with on facebook can end up there. So, you may be missing important messages from potential clients if you aren’t checking there!
4) You can save posts to share later! Use the drop down arrow on the upper right hand corner of the post you want to save, then click “save link” from the options.
Don’t forget that your personal Facebook profile reflects on your business! Take the same amount of care to maintain your personal profile as you do your business page. A client that is truly interested in investing in your services is going to check out both! Are there any valuable social media secrets you know about that we haven’t listed here?
