Facebook is lending a hand to incoming Congressional members. The social network has created a guide that not only teaches members of Congress and their staff on how to create Facebook pages, but also how to engage with users through the use of those pages.
The guide which was published on Friday follows in the footsteps of other Facebook political attempts. In the past Facebook has taught politicians how to increase their use engagement levels.
Here are a group of the guides suggestions from SocialNewsDaily:
- Set up your page with a good cover photo, pro?le photo and comments policy.
- Set profanity ?lters, admin roles and posting ability of fans.
- Create a “conversation calendar” to map out key dates and postings a few weeks in advance.
- Promote your page everywhere. Ask email list contacts to become fans.
