It’s a misnomer that you need Facebook friends to be productive. You could have zero friends — and still see content in your news feed — because of pages you like and profiles you follow.
When you visit me on Facebook, you will see three buttons on the right side of the screen.
Click the second button to follow me and receive future updates of mine in your news feed.
A friend is someone who either sent me a request to be friends or someone I sent a request to be friends, and both of us said yes to each other. Facebook friendship is reciprocal.
We can like, comment, and share each other’s updates.
A follower is someone who sent me a friend request but who I don’t know well enough; or someone who never sent me a friend request but did click the “Follow” button.
Followers can like, comment, or share my public updates. (Every time I write a new Facebook update, I can choose to share it with friends only or the entire Facebook world.)
Why am I asking you to follow me?
Subsequent to April 2015 marking my 10-year anniversary on the social networking site, I drastically spent less time adding content to my profile and more time following others and interacting with them; and joining and participating in groups.
I enjoy sharing, I’m guessing you want to know the man behind the blog — or the guy behind sporadic Facebook updates. I’m guessing you’re curious to read what I find motivating, listen to my curated playlists, or watch those videos that make me smile and cry. I don’t know a better hose to share myself than on Facebook. I know that Mark Zuckerberg wants people to use the site; and for good or bad, I’m going to use it.
Curious to see what I’ll share next? Follow me today.
