Desperately Trying To Learn The Maze Of Facebook

I’ve been selling online for a long time starting with eBay, and then a web store thru Prostores. I never worried about social networking while on eBay because it had it’s own social groups that you could belong to and learn from. There are many people that I’d like to thank for teaching me so much about online selling. Starting with Carla from Shop4UniqueGifts

During the time I was a moderator for her group, she taught me so very much about selling online!

I joined Facebook a year ago only to keep up with my kids and grandkids that are spread out all over the country. Then in August 2011 I started selling on Addoway. Now it seems that everything about Addoway happens on Facebook. And, trust me, I am so very Facebook illiterate!! But I’m desperately trying to learn!

I post things on the Addoway site for the meet and greet and I can post my Addoway items on the sales events. I post on the groups coffee shop, but there are so many many many things that I don’t know how to do.

I’m becoming a Facebook basket case trying to figure things out LOL I will post something on my wall, or is it newsfeed, I don’t know which even But I don’t know how to share it with friends or get it out to friends. I’ve tried, but it doesn’t seem to work.

I started a fan page thru create a page for my items in both Addoway and Sharlyns Country Store, but I don’t know how to get anyone to see it!! I thought , in my Facebook ignorance, that if you start a fan page, all your friends automatically get added to it! Wrong!!!!

So I’m sending an SOS out to my daughter-in-law who is pretty hip on anything Facebook and she is going to give me some lessons LOL Hopefully by the this time next month, I too will know what I’m doing on Facebook.

It seems that most of the sellers here on Addoway are really good on Facebook so any hints or comments will be greatly appreciated!!!

Hopefully, when Fred and the Addoway team start AddoU, it will have a section on how to sell on Facebook!

Your doing really well, Sharon! Good blog that other folks can relate to. And of course, just as I was learning my way around FB, they changed everything!

Well, Sharon... join the rest of us! Do any of us really know what we are doing here? I wonder. I see people post the same thing I do, or at least thinking, a lot... "does anyone even see me on fb?" LOL! Most of the time, I just post stuff and don't know if anyone ever sees it. No likes, no comments, no nothing. eh, whatever. Sometimes a post will get liked & commented on and it surprises me. For the most part, I just muddle through. I haven't ever seen any sales come from fb or twitter; so, I really don't know. I use both. I use to use them more. Maybe I need to get back on and use them more. It's easier on the computer cuz the iphone, to me, is a real pain to try to post stuff to fb and twitter from various websites. Or... maybe I just don't get it. ;)

doing great! Look on the LEFT side of facebook home, around where the games and other pages are, is yours at the bottom of that list? You also should LIKE your own page to find it. :)
