Facebook is so popular that business owners can simply no longer consider it a site only appropriate for socializing and game playing.

With 500 million active users, Facebook is the new behemoth on the Web.

The one thing Facebook has not figured out yet is how to utilize their fabulous product to make the most money, consistently and on an ongoing basis – i.e. finding the right business model. A really intriguing topic to write my very first blog about, because, in my opinion, finding the right business model for Facebook cannot be accomplished using conventional thinking, like, solely looking at Google and their search engine ad revenue, for example. Facebook is unique, so you need to find unique solutions. Actually, there is not one single best business model for this site, rather a multitude of potential revenue streams from very different sources. It is not only “how do we generate revenue”, but equally important “when do we start with which one”. This might sound strange now, but it will get clear, when reading this. Summarized, it is basically taking your assets and what made you successful in the first place and finding new ways to use them effectively.

Every day there are more than 3.2 billion items that are liked or commented about on Facebook pages and that translates into a very powerful mode of advertising for any business.

The secret to using social media effectively is not to be everywhere, but instead to have an online presence where your current and prospective customers are online. Contrary to what many believe- Facebook is not just for college students or for personal use.

Business No-Brainers: Why You Should Use A Facebook Business Page Not Your Facebook Profile!
I was compelled to write this three-part article after meeting so many business owners who have not yet realised the benefits of a Business Page for their brand, products or services and are, in my opinion, really missing a trick. And then there are those who either misunderstand the separate entity concept of a Facebook Business Page or mistakenly think that it gives people a portal to their private lives online. I have even met business owners who to my dismay have set up multiple Facebook accounts with separate log-ins – so much unnecessary work for them.
1. Personal vs. Private
A Facebook Profile and Business Page are (nearly) mutually exclusive and lead very separate lives providing you always remember to post updates as your Page. Whilst there is a limit to what is ‘public’ on your Facebook Profile unless somebody is friends with you, if you are still concerned about the distinction, it doesn’t do any harm to lock down the settings even further if you wish to – Facebook gives you the flexibility and control to do this.
Like many other social networks, Facebook is an effective tool in any marketer’s arsenal. But if you want to be successful with this tool, then you need to know how to use it.
Keep in mind that Facebook marketing is different from how the marketing on other social networking sites is done. This is because each tool has its specific purpose.
Just as you wouldn’t use a wrench to hammer in a nail, you need to be aware of how to use Facebook correctly so that you don’t waste your time or your money on marketing efforts that will ultimately end in a time and money failure.
Use Facebook to Drive Traffic to an Affiliate Promotion
There are three marketing strategies that you can use to make you more money on Facebook. The first method involves driving people to an affiliate promotion. If they click through your Facebook post or ad and make a purchase, then you’ll get a commission.

This job is a little bit different from the typical product manager job, but perhaps we can all learn something from them…
What Makes Facebook Advertising So Popular?

In the U.S., 1 out of ever 6 minutes spent online was spent on Facebook. 1 out of every 5 minutes of mobile usage was spent on Facebook. Clearly the Facebook product managers have got their product development definition right and have a real winner on their hands.
However, Facebook is now attempting to make their product more appealing to advertisers. Facebook first started selling ads on its site 10 years ago. Facebook is competing with Google who delivers ads that match what people are currently looking for and

What will happen to Facebook when the media attacks stop and Facebook emerges as a success story? I have seen the first of the lock-ups come and go with little variance to the price of the stock. The media has attacked Facebook from the day of the IPO. I have my opinions about the IPO and they do not agree with the media in any way.
First off the media made such a big deal of Facebook being a huge IPO and caused the general public to feel they could not even buy a share of Facebook stock. I was one of those people so I know from my experience. I thought I could not buy a share of Facebook stock on the day of the IPO. Everyone was saying that only the biggest of stock brokers were able to get shares of Facebook stock for their clients. The general public felt left out and didn’t even try to buy stock that day.

Understanding Facebook can be quite daunting. The site does have a Help section but I find it next to useless unless you already know your way around. It is far too detailed, with not nearly enough basic information or guidance about how to use Facebook in the first place.
What about third party help, Facebook tutorials, that sort of thing? Not much out there, actually. Considering its popularity I am surprised at how difficult it is for the uninitiated to learn about Facebook.
So I thought that I would provide a basic guide to this wonderful social networking site for those who have never used it or who might have been put off by all the jargon.
What Is Facebook?
The basic concept is really very simple. Open an account and you will have two primary pages allocated to you – a Profile Page (or Wall, as FB sometimes calls it), and a News Feed (or Home). Yes, there are different names for the same things! This is part of the Facebook mystique. Just ignore it.
