My Pet is on Facebook

Can your dog or cat type?

Animals can have their personality, they can be smart, and they certainly have skills we humans don’t have.

Facebook removes FBML

On July 5, 2012, Facebook will remove all FBML functionality.

FB has blocked new usage of FBML for quite some time now, but allowed the existing applications (FBML tabs) to function. This will change on 7/5/12.

FBML, as you might recall, was a way to put user contents with user specific looks and layout on facebook pages. The way to do it now is via so-called iframes.

DPWebsoft Consulting can help you transitioning from FBML to iframes. Even if you have not used either of them, we can install applications on facebook pages that work like you have own website, but it shows up under a tab of your facebook page.

Please let us know if we can help you. You can find the contact information in the “Contact Us” tab on top of this page.

The option for a default landing page (other than wall) is gone.

QRCodes

Have you ever wondered what this is?

This is a QRCode (“QR” stands for Quick response). If you have a mobile phone (and who doesn’t – really), and you have an app for a QRCode reader (e.g. from Scanlife.com), you can scan it, and your device will load whatever the target of the code is.

You can direct it to websites, including facebook pages. But you can also direct it to load a phone number.

Try it out if you’re curious.

What did we learn from the Doomsday disaster

Now that the Doomsday prediction for 5/21/2011 has not come true, is there a lesson to learn here?

I think BrainTurnedOff has a point here. Even though it got some media attention, trustworthiness comes with a mailing list. You hear it all the time. You got to have a mailing list to be successful to promote your products.

Does Social Media Marketing Make Sense for the Smallest Businesses?

Are you one of the small business owners who think social media marketing is not for you, you are not alone.  Only a quarter of businesses thought their customers want to hear from them through social media sites.

Attitudes of US Small Businesses Regarding Connecting with Customers via Social Media, Aug 2010 (% of respondents)

Moreover, many of the business owners think that their customers are doing online research or are on social networking sites.

Research shows, however, that 97% of internet users in the U.S. used online media to search for local products and services in Q1 2010, and 57% of them use social networks at least monthly this year.

Whether their primary source is the use of search engine or social networking, or both, more and more are adopting, and not just younger people.

From emarketer.com:

“Social media can be a great equalizer for small businesses to compete alongside larger brands and SMBs are missing out if they are not involved.”

Are you missing out too? You don’t know too much about it?

We can help you to get started.
