FACEBOOK IS NOT GREAT

PREVIOUS / NEXT

COMPUTERS by KRISS on 31 january 2016

FACEBOOK IS NOT GREAT I started using Facebook a few years ago with a private or personal account and at that time working in an office, I quickly spent a huge time on it.
I even indulged myself in Farmville and that’s when I realized I had hit rock bottom.
Facebook was a useless piece of brain destruction on a personal level and I couldn’t be bothered any more about the life of in laws friends I didn’t even know, or their political ideas or stupid recipes.
I stopped alimenting this Facebook account and left it aside for a little while.

Then when Kate and I started working more as photographers we decided to use it again to find models, organise shoots etc… It worked for a while and we even opened a business page linked to the personal one.
I started having difficulties understanding Facebook use as a business tool at that point.
To start with Facebook would compress my photos to such a poor level that I could barely recognize them.
Then I would post both on the personal and « pro » account and would get the famous « likes » on both, but not the same and comments were split as well, which proved that both pages weren’t seen by the same people and having to duplicate content wasn’t my cup of tea.
I have to admit that it helped us finding models but that is it, it never helped achieved anything more.
And I won’t even go at explaining what this devil’s network can have you destroy on a personal level.

Right now, we have made the choice to work pretty much without Facebook.
Of course we have been traveling and networking wasn’t our priority.
It is again now and I would be happy to use the tool again if I could use it as I wish.
But I can’t !

Facebook won’t let me create a personal account with a name that suits my business need, but it will accept silly names no problemo ! And I can’t be bothered again with a pro account and a personal account when all I need is really to be present on the network but under my brand’s name.

For this, I have to say Facebook really does suck and as I have previously mentioned, it is a brain washing application and I believe people only remember what they have seen on it about as much as they remember the 250 funny memes they’ve been browsing during office hours.
