Social networks are great places to make friends and to promote your services – be it an online or offline business. The strength of social networks rests on two pillars:
First, they are completely FREE to join and use. Second, their use is based on the most powerful engine of human behavior – EMOTIONS. Members have the chance to interact, chat, upload their own stuff like photos, videos, etc.
Social networks offer a lot of tools called applications to facilitate member interaction and activities. Members can also ad applications. This short article is focused on one of the largest social networks – Facebook with an estimated membership of more than 150 Million members worldwide.
There are thousands of Facebook applications available. Most of them are used for entertainment. Some of them are of a more practical type. It is really difficult to identify the most useful applications for your profile and your purpose. Luckily, some people have done most of the work for you. I have also searched through many of Facebook applications and selected the best ones for you. Add these programs to your profile to enhance your Facebook experience and have a better traffic with multiple friends. After all, this is your purpose – to get as many friends as possible! Then you can recommend whatever you want to these friends – your opinions, recommendations, professional service and even special business offers or affiliate programs.
Here they are – the applications chosen by me (sorry for the removed links as required here – you will have to find them on Facebook):
