I am still using Facebook, not every single day, but I am still using it. Once in a while I get new friends and sometimes I even communicate with friends using Facebook. I still think that Facebook is one of the best social networks around.
… but should you use Facebook to promote your blog?
I am not sure, well, it all depends on what kind of blog you are writing. If it’s a blog where you are trying to earn money and sell various products, then Facebook might not be the place to promote it. The reason for this is that your friends on Facebook are also many of your real friends. At least I wouldn’t want to expose them to all sorts of marketing techniques in order for me to earn some extra cash. But this decisision is up to you.
If you want to use Facebook to promote your blog, you can use different “integrated” applications.
Just do a search for WordPress (if that’s the blogging platform you are using) and on the results you will see at the top a headline for applications. Just click on that one and you will get a list of the available applications for WordPress at Facebook.
If I was going to promote my blog this way, I would probably chose the application that will show my feeds inside Facebook. I think the application is called WordBook, it will show a mini-feed of your latest posts to all your Facebook friends.
If you have a lot of friends at Facebook, showing them your mini-feeds would probably be a great way to promote your blog. But again, I would only do it if I think my blog was of any interest to them.
