How to Make Friends on FB (without getting blocked!)
I have yet to get blocked from friending on Facebook….
knock on wood!
But, recently I have met many people online who have….
And more importantly, my team has been asking me…
how do I continue to meet new people to help when I get blocked?
So here are my answers…
First, make sure you don’t look “fake” or like a “spammy” profile…..
-Have a profile picture that is YOU
- Don’t have a ton of links all over your page with your business opp or product
-Have real conversations on your profile page…. your page should look/feel like a cool place to hangout…
the above suggestions are going to ensure people look over your page and decide you are “ok” to accept as a friend. :)
-Shoot a message and let them know how you found them
-Let them know WHY they stood out to you in the first place (you like the same kinds of books, you lived in their hometown growing up, etc)
- Even better, is to shoot them a message first, start up a conversation and THEN if that is going good and you decide you really like this person,would want to be friends with them in real life, then ask them in the conversation to request YOU… Bam! Brilliant, right? ha ha!
Then they are doing the request and it doesn’t even count as your request!
I use these tactics all the time, and I have never been banned, and I almost always am accepted by those I request.
Simple… takes a bit more effort, but worth the extra step!
P.S. Are we friends on facebook? If not, request me HERE ;)
