For the next couple newsletters, we are going to highlight each of the social media outlets and how First Option is using them to better communicate with our customers. Last month's topic was The Blog.
First Option's blog is located at http://www.1stoption.com/blog/
This newsletter will focus on Facebook.
You can find us on Facebook at:
Many of you may already use Facebook in your personal endeavors. It is a great way to share information with friends and family as well as catch up on what is going on in people's lives. Sometimes we get too much sharing but that is a whole other topic!
For business purposes, First Option has created a Facebook page to communicate news, events, and product updates. We also use Facebook to share information from other sources that may be of interest to our customers. For example, we frequently share articles from IBM regarding the iSeries or articles related to financial services, hosting and programming.
If you already have a Facebook account, you can just click on http://tiny.cc/flr1p and click the "Like" button on our page. First Option posts will now be visible in your daily news feed when posted. You can also just periodically click on our site to see what's happening if you prefer not to have the feeds. Our current policy is to post once or twice a month and only if we have important information to share with our customers.
For those of you who do not have a Facebook account you will have to create a new account if you would like to view our posts. The account is free and the set-up is very quick.
Below is a link that gives you the basics about Facebook and how to manage your privacy settings as well as some other helpful information. Privacy settings are very important and must be set by the user, otherwise your page may be open to the public. https://www.facebook.com/help/?page=260315770650470
If there is any information you would like to see on our Facebook page please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
