So, is it time to run a Facebook Contest? I thought I would try one out on my brand new Facebook Fan page at facebook.com/socialwebcafe. Now, I don’t want to make a complete fool of myself in the process, but, at some point, we have to jump in and get our feet wet, right? And, besides, if this contest thing works out well, it would be a win-win with promotion opportunities for me and goodies for the winners.
You may be fortunate enough to still have the birthdays show up in the panel on the right of your Facebook window. You may also see it pop up while navigating your friends’ lists, etc. What we have, above, is the way to do-it-yourself when you’re just not sure where that bugger went in the middle of Facebook world.
Well, we all have different reasons to be on Facebook, and what I started to realize is, regardless of the purpose, it can be downright daunting to manage all my friends! I don’t mean manage their lives, I mean simply remembering that they have lives, remembering them, and looking like I care, in this status-overrun, game-filling, news feed! It seems as if I need to have a calculating calendar go off in my head to think of them. Either that or sit in front of Facebook 24/7 to see what everyone is doing at any given moment. I’m so glad Facebook has the birthday feature so at least I have an opportunity to think of some people (hopefully).
