Get Creative With Text On Your Facebook Timeline Cover

One of the most important decisions that you face in creating a Facebook timeline cover photo is how much text to include, if any. It’s probably a good idea to include some, in order to get your message across. You should always have a goal with your Facebook cover photo, which will enable you to make a plan so that you can accomplish what you’re setting out to do with the digital real estate.


Common Goals

There are a few goals that are pretty much universal with Facebook timeline cover photos. First of all, you want to grab the attention of the visitor. If your Facebook timeline cover photo does not stand out, they may quickly click away from your page and go check out something else. Therefore it is important that you use something that is eye-catching and lures them in. Next, you want to convey information about your brand and company. This can be done through text or imagery, and it should intrigue them enough to lead into your third goal. That should be to keep them on your Facebook page for as much time as possible.

I am a Gunpla enthusiast and a collector, but I just started collecting last May and my first kit is a Master Grade 1/100 Red Frame Astray.

The Facebook Hashtagging Debate

Since the web was created, it has always been about using the same strategy to create a brand; find a good web host, build a website and allow search engines to pick it up to rank for your brand name. Whilst this has been effective and successful for years, the inclusion of social media has emerged as a key contributor in assisting these methods. The most recent and most impactful has been the hash tag inclusion in Facebook.

Originally introduced on Twitter, hashtags can help companies to promote their services. When a tweet includes a hashtag that is trending, it can be found by a whole host of users. If a Twitter account is linked to a Facebook account, tweets can also become status updates. Because of this, hashtags are starting to increasingly appear on Facebook and are starting to divide opinion as a result.

PassedOn, Leaving a Will: A Great Way to be at Peace

Most of us would rather not think or talk about dying.  So it won’t come as a surprise to hear that four out of five Filipino people have not written down any preferences regarding their own death.

Being prepared before your death will help to ease the burden on your loved ones. For instance, simple thing like leaving instructions on where things are kept will save your family searching for them, at a time when they’re likely to be upset.

How to Determine How Much Bandwidth Your Office Needs

With all the challenges involved in setting up a new business, working out your bandwidth needs shouldn’t have to be a chore. However, choosing the right bandwidth package and internet service provider could be the difference between getting your business off the ground and falling flat on your face.

Modern Technology

Think about it; these days most phone systems run off internet connections instead of copper wires, and face-to-face meetings are being replaced by video conferencing; especially when you have clients or business partners in other states or even countries. And if your website is slow or your phone lines aren’t working, your customers will just as easily go elsewhere.

Often, if a company’s resources aren’t up-to-scratch, it’s because of poor planning; therefore, it’s important to stay ahead of the game and select the right amount of bandwidth for your office.

Explain How Blog Autofeed or Autopost Works So You Won’t Lose Your Job

It is very common in most offices or companies to prohibit their employees from using social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter during work hours. There are also some who allow or unblock these sites during lunch break. There also some companies that fully block these sites. It is obvious that these sites are time-consuming and it was very unprofessional if one is utilizing these social sites even at work.  Recently, I learned that some employed bloggers experienced being accused that they are blogging or posting their articles during working hours. Though some really do it, I think employers/bosses should not generalize people in the blogosphere. We still have work ethics instilled in our minds and we apply it.
