Livestream video is so, so powerful and very hot right now. People love watching videos and Facebook loves showing videos in their newsfeeds. We get decent engagement on Facebook but when I do a Facebook Live, our engagement skyrockets.

It goes without saying but I’m going to say it anyway: Facebook today is significantly more complex than it was when it was first launched to the general public years ago. At the beginning, they only offered users profiles. Now we can create all sorts of presences on Facebook: Profiles, Pages, and Groups.
Each one is distinctly different from the others and thus needs to be used differently. In this blog post, I’ll be explaining the difference between each and giving you tips on how you can use them. I’d love your feedback so if you have any comments or questions, comment below!
I’m sure many of you have experienced this before. I sure have. You write this great social media post only to hear crickets. Sucks, right?
Before you start writing the post or curating the content, decide what your goal is with it. What do you want the end result to be? When you consider that question and craft your post in the context of the answer, your post is more likely to achieve whatever goal it is you set out to achieve.
