Facebook page launched – ‘Dean O’Brien Freelance Photographer’

with one comment

It wasn’t so long ago that people said that Facebook was for family and friends and Twitter was geared more towards promoting your professional image.  However, I think that recently Facebook seem to have done a great attempt at pulling back those who thought this way with the launch of their business pages.

One only just has to take a look at television adverts these days.  No longer are they trying to direct you to ‘www.’ websites, but they are getting you to interact with them via their Facebook page.  It seems to be a ‘win win’ situation for both the customer and the business.

In fact only recently I was employed to set up a local business with their social media sites.  I advised against setting up a website that would probably be too complicated to keep on top of, as most of this clients customers were already on Facebook and would find this a much more ‘user friendly’ experience.

Most people make contact on the move these days and Facebook have managed to create great apps for use on smart phones, iPads or tablets.  Again. by nailing simplicity with a user friendly system, they have managed to win over the masses.

By creating a Facebook page for my own business it enables me to deliver content right into the laps of those who are interested in my work, and more importantly, without them having to come and look for it.

Anyway, just click on the image below to be taken straight to my Facebook page and click ‘Like’ if you want to follow my updates.

  1. I totally agree with the “www.” situation. Believe it or not, a lot of shop windows have social media logos on display as opposed to a professional website. I wouldn’t say bespoke websites will be obsolete soon, but I am starting to feel that the information we need won’t be required to be displayed in websites but facebook and such.

    For instance, a restaurant website can just put up their menu on the photos folder on facebook. There’s nothing missing in terms of access at all.

    Good to see you’re progressing well on your projects.
