Companies like Coca-Cola and Disney have tens of millions of fans interested in the latest company news and culture.
Take stock of the brands you’d like to follow, search for their timelines and “like” them on Facebook.
Judging by what they plan to do with that info, your profile as well as your friend list should be utterly blank as far as I can see. Still, right now, 200,000,000 Americans are on it!?
After all, many of us can reach tens of thousands and even millions of people monthly without so much as a Facebook account already. That's two thirds of the population of this country!
Once you’ve logged into Facebook, the first thing you'll see is the News Feed.
And the place to access that information is the News Feed.
One of the most recent changes Facebook made to its News Feed is the order in which updates appear.
Facebook’s algorithm and your own activity determine what “news” is most important, and thus, whether it makes the top of your News Feed.
Chances are, many of your co-workers, family members, classmates and neighbors are already on the network.
Search for them in the search box that appears on the top of the site.
Before you begin searching for friends, it’s important to complete your Timeline (aka your personal profile), which includes everything from uploading a profile picture and cover photo to outlining your employment history to determining your relationship status (OK, that’s optional).
