How To Setup Your Personal Facebook Profile In 5 Minutes (Tutorial)
Okay, this chapter is for those of you who are brand new to Facebook. If you already have a personal profile, you can skip this chapter (although you may find the section on your Timeline cover photos to be quite useful).
How To Setup Your Personal Facebook Profile
Step 1. Go to www.Facebook.com
Step 2. Fill in Your Info
You will need to fill in your first and last name, email, password, sex and birthday to join Facebook.
Step 3. Invite Your Friends To Connect
Next, Facebook will ask you to connect with your friends who are already on Facebook. To do so, simply pick your email service you use and login with that password – Facebook will automatically show you all your friends who you’ve emailed that are already on Facebook and you can add them all with the click of a button.
Note: Unless you are a celebrity or extremely well-known, I HIGHLY recommend you add everyone you know as a friend on Facebook. This will dramatically increase the size of your network and help you in your online marketing efforts.
You never know how big a difference just one person could make! Treasure each of those connections.
Step 4. Fill In Your Education & Work Info
Next, just fill in your high school, college and current employer information (it’s okay to leave it blank if you didn’t graduate from college or what not). I highly recommend filling out this info so that you can connect with past schoolmates and your co-workers.
Again, this will increase the size of your network and help you in your marketing efforts.
Step 5. Upload a Profile Picture
Next, Facebook will ask you to upload a picture of yourself. It’s best to get a headshot of you. If not, any photo of you that will be recognizable to your friends will do.
I highly recommend putting a photo of yourself on your profile! You’ll see some people who put photos of their children, pets or some random picture there – I DO NOT recommend that. It looks VERY unprofessional and will not help you in your marketing efforts.
Step 6. Post a Status Update and Celebrate!
Next, it’s time to post your first “status update” on Facebook. This is a public message that your friends will be able to see when they login to Facebook or look at your profile.
The very next page after uploading your profile picture is called your “Newsfeed” or your personal Facebook Home page. In the middle, you will see photos, videos and text updates from your friends.
At the top in the middle there is a small box that says “What’s on your mind?”
Click in that box and you can type in your first status update on Facebook – anything will do!
If you don’t know what to type just copy and paste this,
“This is my first status update on Facebook! Thanks to Facebook For Business Owners I’m finally on Facebook!”
