In the past couple weeks Facebook has made a few changes that may have altered your Privacy settings and those of 350 million other users.
Depending on whether your Facebook profile is personal or used largely for business, you need to look at your privacy settings and determine just what you want other people and the search engines to see.
I recommend you take the following steps to update your profile and account privacy to the level that you want:
- Click on “Settings” in the upper left-hand corner of your screen, near the Search box.
- Click on “Privacy Settings” from the drop-down menu.
- Click on “Profile Information” and set each item listed to your preferred privacy level.
- Click “Back to Privacy” above the list of items.
- Click on “Contact Information” and repeat choosing your level of privacy for all the items listed, as you see fit.
- Click “Back to Privacy” above the list of items. And now Click on “Search” to edit who can search you, as well as if you want your profile at all to be indexed by search engines.
I think by now that most people who pay close attention to social media marketing are probably familiar with Gary Vaynerchuk. He is the “social media” expert behind the now famous Wine Library TV. Frankly, I don’t much care for wine and rarely drink alcohol of any description but keep up with this website just to see what new ideas Gary comes up with that can be utilized for myself or my clients.
I just found out that one of my favorite WordPress Plugins, WP Wishlist is now offering a free copy of Gary’s new book “Crush It” and an interview with Gary during the month of October with any purchase. The book is a perfect match for all WishList customers as it outlines how to turn your passion into a profitable business by using the internet. As Gary himself says about this book, it is “the secret for business – with details!” If you are in the process of building a membership site WP Wishlist is a “MUST HAVE” plugin. Combining it with this book is pure genius in my opinion.

I am delighted to have the opportunity to interview Jack Humphrey this Friday on my BlogTalkRadio show. I have been tagging around after Jack on the internet for many years now. Why? Because Jack is a ten year veteran internet marketing consultant, blog marketing expert, and author of one of my very favorite blogs, The Friday Traffic Report. He is also the author of the Authority Black Book and Social Power Linking which is now no longer for sale as a stand alone product but has been incorporated into his Blog Success membership . If you don’t yet have your free copy of the Authority Black Book, RUN and get that free download. This book is, has been, and continues to be a very important part of my entrepreneurial success library. Each time this book is updated, I download. You should too.
We will explore the world of social media marketing and networking during this interview. Everyone has heard of the power to brand, engage, link, and network to further their business. But relatively few people get as much out of it as the pros talk about.
What do people need to do to engage in a successful campaign?
How do you coach people to keep from getting overwhelmed with all the information and sites they belong to?
Where would someone best start getting into social media marketing if they only have so much time to do so?
How can one person do the work of many in social marketing? How do you appear to be everywhere at all times in your social network of sites?
If these are questions that you have a burning desire to have answered, we welcome you to join us on Friday.
When: Friday June 5, 2009
Time: 9 am PST / 10 am MST / 11 am CST / 12 pm EST
Call In Telephone Number: 347-843-4988
Time permitting; we will open up the call for questions and answers. Please be sure to login to the chat room to ask questions during the call.
We look forward to “seeing” you!read more
