Hey, everyone…If you receive a friend request from someone you are 99% sure is already your friend on Facebook, just check your friends’ list before accepting. If you still have doubts, message them and ask questions that only the true person would know the answers to. There are also alot of temporary profiles out there, just hanging around long enough to gather some contacts from your friend list (and they don’t have to see your friends list, they can gather from the posts, likes and comments on your timeline as well). I check out every friend request…if I see a profile with just two pics (usually a pic of some kind, and an enlarged copy of the first), no friend, about, etc info…I block them. I’ll also do a Google search, as well. When in doubt, message them and start asking questions, which usually throws them off, and they disappear. I love fish…but not catfish.
Getting your “name out there” when you are just starting out, or reaching out to a bigger demographic is important. I’ve never bought an Email list..and honestly question just how effective they really are, because you can’t be absolutely sure who you are contacting, or if the Email address is even in service anymore. This article is a must read for anyone considering Email marketing.
