Updates on Facebook

The new Updates feature on Facebook is really useful. If you go into Edit Page and Marketing you can send all your fans an update.

The new FB message service is split into two with your regular private messages from friends going into your normal inbox and updates, events communications being kept elsewhere.

The great thing is that these then appear in the top right hand corner of everyone’s personal profile page as ‘Events’ or ‘Unread Updates’.

As Mari Smith says ‘This is valuable real estate’ that can be used to get the attention of your fans and bring them back to your fan page. If you have a good post on your wall, you can do an update linking to it and give yourself a free ad when it appears on the top right of your fans pages.

However, as is the case with Facebook Events, the powers that be at Facebook have decided only to let you send these to the friends of that particular admin, not to the actual people who have liked the page - which is a little bizarre.
