Crowdsourcing Your Curiosities

Social Media allows us to reach out to groups of trusted friends when we have questions on a topic.  So, I took the opportunity to reach out to some Facebook fans and let them ask me some questions.

I was curious about a new online meeting tool – Meetingburner – So it was a chance for me to ask some questions and test a tool.

In the video below we cover:

  • Basics of the new Admin Panel on Facebook Pages.
  • Dimensions of the Timeline Cover Image.
  • Customizing Tab & App Images.
  • Using Facebook as your business brand.
  • Critiques of Facebook Pages & Timeline Appearances.
  • And more.
