The Ultimate Guide to Facebook part 3

Part 3

Facebook Page.

67.  What is a Facebook Page?

Pages are for organizations, businesses, celebrities, and bands to broadcast great information in an official, public manner to people who choose to connect with them. Similar to profiles, Pages can be enhanced with applications that help the entity communicate and engage with their audiences, and capture new audiences virally through friend recommendations, News Feed stories, Facebook events, and beyond.

68.  How can I create a Page?

If you are the official representative of an organization, business, celebrity, or band, you can create a Page here to represent your organization on Facebook.

69.  Who can create a Page?

If you are the official representative of an organization, business, celebrity, or band, you can create a Page here.

Only the official representative of an organization, business, celebrity, or band may create a Facebook Page. The Page creator can then add other representatives to help them manage the Page. Each Page admin will be able to update and edit their Pages from their own accounts.

In addition, Page names may not solely use the generic term for the category of products or services you offer (e.g. “beer” or “pizza”). Those Page names that merely refer to generic categories (e.g. “Photography” instead of “Joe’s Wedding Photography”) may have their administrative rights automatically removed. Also note that once a Page has been created, you will not be able to edit the Page name.

70.  How do I access and manage my Page?

You can access your Page by typing your Page name into the search bar at the top of any Facebook page and selecting it from the drop-down that appears. You can then manage your Page by selecting the “Edit Page” link underneath the Page’s profile picture. You can manage your Page by clicking the “Ads and Pages” link on the left hand menu of your home page, and then clicking the “Pages” link on the left hand menu of the following page. Simply select the “Edit Page” link next to the Page you wish to manage. Alternatively, you can access this page through the following link.

71.  How are Pages different from personal profiles?

Profiles represent individuals and must be held under an individual name, while Pages allow an organization, business, celebrity, or band to maintain a professional presence on Facebook. You may only create Facebook Pages to represent real organizations of which you are an authorized representative.

In addition, Pages are managed by admins who have personal Facebook profiles. Pages are not separate Facebook accounts and do not have separate login information from your profile. They are merely different entities on our site, similar to how Groups and Events function. Once you have set up a Page within your profile, you may add other admins to help you manage this Page. People who choose to connect to your Page won’t be able to see that you are the Page admin or have any access to your personal account.

72.  How do I change my Page name?

If an error was made in your Page name when it was created, you have the option to edit the Page name to correct this issue. This option is only limited to Pages with less than 100 connections. After selecting to edit your Page, you can adjust this information from the “Basic Information” section.

73.  How do I delete a Page?

To delete your Page:

  • Click “Edit Page” underneath the profile picture when viewing your Page.
  • Select “Manage Permissions” from the left sidebar.
  • Click “Permanently delete this Page.” Please keep in mind that once you delete your Page, there’s no way to reinstate it.

74.  Is it possible to change my Page category?

At this time, it’s not possible to edit a Page category. If you would like to change the category, you will need to delete your current Page and create another one under the correct category.

75.  Can I publish posts to specific followers, instead of to everyone?

Yes, you can publish posts, links, photos, and videos to your audience based on location and language. This is controlled via the ‘Customize’ option, located in the dropdown next to the ‘Share’ button in the publish box. A post that is published to Facebook users in a specific location or language will only be visible to those users. All other users will never see the post in the News Feed, on your Page, or anywhere else across Facebook.

76.  How do I remove someone who is connected to my Page?

Please follow the steps below:

  • Click “See all” under the Likes section
  • Select the “X” next to a user’s name
  • Click “Remove.”

77. How do I permanently ban a follower?

How do I permanently ban a follower?
From the Likes section:

  • Click “See all” under the Likes section
  • Select the “X” next to a user’s name
  • Check the box next to “Ban Permanently”
  • Click “Remove”

From a Wall post:

  • Select the “X” next to the user’s post
  • Click “Report” after the post has been removed
  • Select the reason for the report from the menu
  • Select the box to “Permanently ban this person from this Facebook Page and remove all content they have posted”

From a comment:

  • Click “Flag” next to the user’s comment
  • Click “Report” after the comment has been flagged
  • Select the reason for the report from the menu
  • Select the box to “Permanently ban this person from this Facebook Page and remove all content they have posted”

78.  What is the Spam filter on my Page’s wall?

Facebook is now helping Page admins ensure that the most valuable content posted by users on their Page wall is more visible to anyone viewing the Page. We are now offering automatic content filtering on Page walls that will ensure that posts soliciting spam are removed from public view as well as ensure that posts containing good content remain more visible.

79.  What happens when a post is marked as Spam?

The post is removed from the Pages wall and is not viewable to anyone except for the user who posted the content and the poster’s friends. Admins of the Page can also view the post by clicking on the Spam filter at the top of the Page’s wall.

80.  What is the difference between a business account and a user profile?

Business accounts are designed for individuals who only want to use the site to administer Pages and their ad campaigns. For this reason, business accounts do not have the same functionality as personal accounts. Business accounts have limited access to information on the site. An individual with a business account can view all the Pages and Facebook Ads that they have created, however they will not be able to view the profiles of users on the site or other content on the site that does not live on the Pages they administer. In addition, business accounts cannot be found in search and cannot send or receive friend requests.

81.  How do I create a business account?

To get started, you will need to first create a Facebook Ad or Page. To start this process, please click here. Once you’ve entered in the required information, you will be taken to the “Facebook Login” page and asked if you have a Facebook account. If you do not currently have a Facebook account, then at this point, please select “I do not have a Facebook account.” You will then need to enter your email address and date of birth. Please be aware that managing multiple accounts is a serious violation of Facebook’s Terms of Use. If we determine that an individual has more than one account, we reserve the right to terminate all of their accounts.

82.   Why should I register a username for my Facebook Page?

Usernames allow public entities to easily promote your presence on Facebook with a short URL. This username can be used in your marketing communications, company website and business cards.

An example of a username is the phrase “fbsitegovernance” as used in the web address http://www.facebook.com/fbsitegovernance.

Facebook Like.

83.   What is the Like feature?

“Like” is a way to give positive feedback or to connect with things you care about on Facebook. You can like content that your friends post to give them feedback or like a Page that you want to connect with on Facebook. You can also connect to content and Pages through social plugins or advertisements on and off Facebook.

84.   How do I unlike something?

You can unlike a piece of content or a Page on Facebook.

  • To unlike a piece of content that you or a friend has posted, just click the “Unlike” link that appears beneath the content itself.
  • To unlike a Page (which will also remove it from your profile), go directly to the Page and click the “Unlike” link in the lower left-hand column.

85.   Why did “Become a Fan” change to “Like”?

To improve your experience and promote consistency across the site, we’ve changed the language for Pages from “Fan” to “Like.” We believe this change offers you a more light-weight and standard way to connect with people, things and topics in which you are interested.

Facebook New Message.

86.   How do I upgrade to the new Messages?

Facebook are rolling out the new Messages to everyone gradually, so you should see steps to upgrade soon. If you want to access the new Messages sooner, visit the Learn more page to request an invitation (invitations will be sent pending availability).

87.   How do I invite friends to upgrade to the new Messages?

Click “Invite Friends” at the bottom of your Messages view. The number of remaining invitations you can send will appear in parenthesis next to this link. Note that upgrades may not take effect immediately.

88.   What’s changing with the new Messages?

Messages have always been the place for private exchanges on Facebook, and this won’t change. With the new Messages, now you have easy access to all your private conversations with your friends in one place.

The new Messages interface not only displays the Facebook messages you exchange with friends, but it also interweaves your chats, texts and emails (should you choose to create an @facebook.com address). It’s a central place to control all of your private communication, both on and off Facebook.

Now when you view a conversation, you’re actually looking at a complete history of all the communication you’ve shared with that person on Facebook — it’s like having an ongoing record of your friendship.

89.  How do I set up a free @facebook.com email address?

To set up a free @facebook.com address, go to your Messages view and click the “Claim your Facebook email” link.

Your email address will match your public username, for example:

Profile: facebook.com/username
Email: username@facebook.com

If you don’t have a username yet, you can choose one when you create your email address.

Once you set up your email address, people can email you using any traditional email system (e.g., Hotmail, Yahoo or Gmail), and the emails will be delivered to your Facebook Messages. When you send messages to external email addresses, the emails will be formatted to look like Facebook messages, including your name, your profile picture and your message.

Facebook Ads.

90.   What are Facebook Ads?

Facebook strives to show relevant and interesting advertisements to you and your friends. Here are the facts about Facebook Ads:

  • Ads can appear in the right-hand column of pages throughout Facebook. Ads are eligible to appear on many types of pages, including Apps, Photos, Groups, Pages, Profiles, and the Home page.
  • The content of a Facebook Ad is sometimes paired with news about social actions (e.g., liking a Page) that your friends have taken.
  • Your friends might see news about the social actions you have taken in Facebook Ads. This news will only be shown to your confirmed friends, and will adhere to applicable privacy settings you’ve set for your account. If a photo is used, it is your profile photo and not from your photo albums.
  • Facebook doesn’t sell your information to advertisers.
  • Facebook actively enforces policies that help protect your experience with third party applications and ad networks.

91.  I want to advertise on Facebook.

For monthly advertising campaign budgets under $30,000 USD we offer Facebook Ads, which you can create using your own Facebook account.

You can target your ad by location, sex, age, keyword, relationship status, job title, workplace, or college. As you select each targeting criterion, we will display the approximate number of users that your targeting encompasses.

Additionally, there is no set cost for Facebook Ads. If you’d like to see what we recommend you bid for each click (CPC) or thousand impressions (CPM), just enter your targeting criteria and go through to Step 4 of ad creation (you won’t have to enter any payment information until the next step, so you can do this without purchasing an ad). The “bid estimator” will show you the range of bids that are currently winning the auction among ads similar to yours.

Facebook platform.

92.  How does privacy work with sites using Facebook Login?

When you connect or login to a website with your Facebook account, it can access information you’ve added on Facebook in order to provide a social and personalized experience on their application the site. The Facebook Platform Policies restrict how these sites can access and use this information.

This means that if you’ve blocked a user on Facebook, that user will not be able to see you on a “connected” site. When other users connect with a website, those users will not be able to see information you’ve added through Facebook that they wouldn’t otherwise be able to see simply by browsing Facebook. You can decide what types of information your friends’ apps can access from the “Applications and Websites” section on the Privacy Settings page.

93.  Is it safe to login with Facebook on another site?

You can use your Facebook account on several third-party websites and apps. These websites and apps are using the Facebook Platform. Look for the registration tool or a Login/Connect button that prompts you to login with Facebook. You should make sure that clicking on the Login/Connect button opens in a separate browser pop-up window, and that the Web address (URL) for the pop-up contains the proper “www.facebook.com” domain. If it does, you’ll know that it’s a legitimate Facebook page and not a phishing attempt, and you can log in safely and securely.

Facebook Social plugins.

94.  What personal information is shared with sites that use social plugins?

None of your information – your name or profile information, what you like, who your friends are, what they have liked, what they recommend – is shared with external sites you visit with a plugin. Because they have given Facebook this “real estate” on their sites, they do not receive or interact with the information that is contained or transmitted there. Similarly, no personal information about your actions is provided to advertisers on Facebook.com or on the other site.

95.  How do social plugins work?

While these buttons and boxes appear on other websites, the content populating them comes directly from Facebook. The plugins were designed so that the website you are visiting receives none of this information. These plugins should be seen as an extension of Facebook.

You only see a personalized experience with your friends if you are logged into your Facebook account. If you are not already logged in, you will be prompted to log in to Facebook before you can use a plugin on another site.

At a technical level, social plugins work when external websites put an iframe from Facebook.com on their sites, as if they were agreeing to give Facebook some real estate on their websites. When you visit one of these sites, the Facebook iframe can recognize if you are logged into Facebook. If you are logged in, it’ll show personalized content within the plugin as if you were on Facebook.com directly. Even though the iframe is not on Facebook, it is designed with all the privacy protections as if it were.

96.  What are different types of social plugin Facebook provide?

Social plugins let you see what your friends have liked, commented on or shared on sites across the web. All social plugins are extensions of Facebook and are specifically designed so none of your data is shared with the sites on which they appear. They are following

  • Like Button
  • Activity Feed
  • Recommendations

  • Step  3,Customize your like box

99.  How to integrate comment system on your website?

The Comments Box easily enables your users to comment on your site’s content — whether it’s for a web page, article, photo, or other piece of content. Then the user can share the comment on Facebook on their Wall and in their friends’ streams.

To administer your comments box, you need to be listed as a developer on the application used to initialize the JavaScript SDK. An ‘Administer Comments’ link will appear below the ‘Post’ button for developers of the application.

  • Step 1 ,Go to this link
  • Step 2, add you unique Id.
  • Step 3, Customize your Comment box.
  • Step 4,Get comment box code
  • Step 5, publish the feeds.

100.   How to create a Live Stream for your website.

The Live Stream plugin lets users visiting your site or application share activity and comments in real time. Live Stream works best when you are running a real-time event, like live streaming video for concerts, speeches, or webcasts, live Web chats, webinars, massively multiplayer games.

Go to this link and create your Live stream.

101.    How to create activity feed.

The Activity Feed plugin displays the most interesting recent activity taking place on your site. Since the content is hosted by Facebook, the plugin can display personalized content whether or not the user has logged into your site. The activity feed displays stories both when users like content on your site and when users share content from your site back to Facebook. If a user is logged into Facebook, the plugin will be personalized to highlight content from their friends. If the user is logged out, the activity feed will show recommendations from your site, and give the user the option to log in to Facebook.

You can create Activity feed from this link.
