22 Year Old Opens First Facebook Account!

Last Update: April 26, 2015

Until now I've managed to get away with not having a FaceBook account.

Yes… I missed out on keeping in touch with some friends and acquaintances, but I also saved myself a whole lot of wasted time.

Now that I'm starting my new business (www.savewithenergy.com), and I realize the value of social media, I've decided to open up an account.

I'd love to grow my network and would happy to have some WA friends :) Please 'friend' me at https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100009315351756.

Oh. My full name is Sara Stephanie, so please don't be confused by that. Initially, when I first started out in the 'professional' world, I thought I wanted to go by Stephanie, but after much thought and consideration, I've decided to stick with my first name, Sara.

I'm also open to any tips, tricks and advice on building a professional FB page.

Cheers,

Stephanie

Thanks for sharing! Wishing you the best with Facebook. I am a non-Facebook person, I left back in 2008 because I hated what it became. With that said, it does have advantages, and I hope it is a blessing to you and your business :)

Huh! So I'm not the only one ;)

Thank you! I think because I know what to expect and why I stayed away for so long, I'll be able to gage myself appropriately… at least, I hope so!

I don't know how many times I thought about canceling my account with Facebook. But I already had so much going on with it and realized that I would miss out on opportunities one day since it is all about social media now. Good luck and welcome to the Facebook community.

Done :)

How'd you get the business page? Don't you have to start with a personal account?

Yes, you should start with a personal one, but there's an option where you click "create a page" and you start by clicking what type of page you need (local, brand, company, etc.) I believe you should click on the "down arrow" on the top right corner of your facebook page... you can also create groups, adds, etc.

I have several business pages. I am about to hit 2 million people on Facebook Friday with my new commercial. I don't have a business page yet for that but I will by Friday.

Thank you.

I set it up as mvalverdec says, but I have had a personal account for ages. Haven't been on it much but managed to set up that page through a tutorial.

I will provide the link when I find it.

Good for you! (not that I'm reading this and send you a friend request) :) but we, as marketers, must see social media different from now on! There are some valuable tutorials here at WA so you can check them. Also with Google+, Twitter and Pinterest. Good luck!
