Awesomeness is cool and every people want to get a piece of it, especially in the top social networking site, Facebook. Since the rise of Facebook, its hundreds of million of members are already sharing the answer on the question “what’s on your mind” everyday, every hour and even every minute. From business people who want to promote their products to potential customers, to simple people who just want to share their life’s experiences online, Facebook is the place to go. However, not all who want to get noticed get the attention that they want. We can tell that by looking on the number of likes and comments on one’s every shared status updates. Facebook users can share status updates which must be less than 500 characters. These updates can be in the form of texts, photos, videos and links. The following are some important tips on how to make your friends click that Like button and get more “Likes” on your Facebook status updates.
Have a good profile offline. Your online success starts outside the Internet. If you are really friendly as a person and have a lot of friends offline, you will have the better chance to gain more friends online. Be a good and helpful person at your home, workplace and anywhere in the real world. The more friends you have offline, the more you will get friends online. And the more friends you have on Facebook, the more likes you will get on your status updates. Besides, you can also ask your Dad, Mom, brothers, sisters and your closest friends to just like your updates. The closer they are, the more you will have confidence in asking those likes. And when the likes start, the curiosity of other users on your status will also begin.
Be close to your Facebook friends. Be closer to them. Chat with them or send them important messages, not spam! If you’re not comfortable with chatting, then you can communicate with them right through their walls or status updates. Like their updates and make relevant comments. Also, don’t forget to greet them on their birthdays. Often, conversation starts on the commenting. When you are close to your friends, their hearts, minds and hands are closer to clicking the Like button on your status updates.
Share useful updates. This goes to link updates. Don’t share all your links, whether they are your blog posts or website pages. Share only the links that you think will be of great help to your Facebook friends. You need to have a goo reputation in sharing just great updates. So be careful and be wise on sharing things on your wall. You can also share current news that help people to be currently updated on what’s happening to the world.
Share controversial and intriguing updates. I’m not talking about gossips, unless you’re a person of star talk. What I mean is share updates that will make your friends engage in an enthusiastic conversation, which can make your status have a long chain of comments. Intriguing status updates are those that are personally related to your friends. If your updates directly connect to them personally, your update will get likes and comments directly from their thoughts and emotions.
Return the favor. Thank your friends for liking your status updates. You can also return the favor by also clicking the Like button in their status updates or on their photos. When your friends know that you always return the liking, they will always like your updates when they need a Like to their own status updates.
There are many other ways and tactics you can do to attract users to like your status updates. You just need to do experiments for yourself. You should also understand that people can be different in many other ways. People have their own interests, which also mean your Status updates can be likable to some and not to others. Thus, it is important that you should also choose your friends. Friendliness doesn’t mean you will befriend all the people in the world, including the people that can harm you. Friendliness simply means befriending anyone whom you can make a good friend and whom you can be a good friend to him or her also.
