Other Social Networks May Affect Your Facebook Page Fans Numbers
In order to get more fans and “likes” for your Facebook Fan Page, all possibilities of marketing and promotion should definitely be explored. Although Facebook itself has quite a large number of active users (which sits around 750 million at the time of writing), reaching the audience of other social networking websites is definitely a great option that you should explore in order to get much wider exposure for your Facebook Fan Page. There is no rule prohibiting the promotion of a Facebook Fan Page in other social networking websites so you should take advantage of this opportunity to freely promote your Facebook Fan Page to a wider audience.
A lot of social networking websites aside from Facebook boast a large number of followers. If you are looking for websites where you can explore a wider audience and promote your Facebook Fan Page, here is a list that you can use as a guide:
This social networking website is also known as a micro-blogging site that people use to share short messages. Because Twitter follows a conventional short-messaging system also known as ‘Tweets’, sharing information is much quicker and people are encouraged to write short but meaningful statements. Creating an account on Twitter and tweeting about your Facebook Fan Page is a great promotional strategy because Twitter has at least 400 million followers to date that you can reach and even can get more Twitter followers.
The new rival of Facebook that was recently launched in mid-2011, Google+ is just on beta stage and is still not open to the public. However, in just a short time after its conception, Google+ has already aroused the interest of a lot of people. Google+ was able to acquire at least 10 million users in just less than a month so promoting your Facebook Fan Page in Google+ is something that you must explore in the immediate future.
Although this website has experienced a steady decline in recent years, Myspace is still one of the top social networking websites that you can use as a place to promote your Facebook Fan Page. The unique monthly visitors of Myspace still reach at least 20 million as of May 2011 so it is still a big market that you can explore. The good thing about Myspace is that it offers a profile page customization feature through the use of HTML and CSS. Using this feature, you can create a Myspace page resembling the theme of your own Facebook Page and use it to promote your page to Myspace users.
Promoting your Facebook Fan Page in other social networking sites is a great strategy that you can employ to get more people to like your Facebook Page. If you combine the followers of all the major social networking websites that exist today, the number will surely surpass a billion people. If you can reach even just a fraction of that audience and get them to like your Facebook Page, the revenues that you can generate from Facebook will increase dramatically.
