My thoughts

I have already been quite active on facebook there were still tips which I learned from the book to make my experience on Facebook better. I learned how to fully utilize the lists which I have created and  further optimize my fan page.  I  didn’t know that there is a contact form app whereby I could attach a contact form on my fan page itself. I could also run contests and giveaways from it. This is something which I would be looking more into in time to come.  Through reading the book I got a better understanding on how the Insights work on my fan page and how to optimize posting on it. It really helped me tweak my usage of Dominique’s Desk  fan page and make it more interactive for my loyal readers.


I certainly recommend this book for anyone who wants to create a better presence on Facebook or would like to venture into the world of Facebook.
