Updated on August 18, 2011

Discover how you can improve your social life, grow your business, get more leads, and find your love match through Facebook, the #1 social media website that has 60 million users!

 

1. Facebook Signup

First things first, if you want to be the receiver of any of the benefits listed above you will need to sign up for a Facebook account. Click here to sign up.

If you already have an FB account simply login and get ready for the next step.

 

2. Facebook Housekeeping

Once you have an account set up you should ensure you that it is secure and protects your privacy. You can do this by going to privacy settings and customizing them.

 

Things I Share

Here you should set everything except your bio to 'Friends Only.' For your bio and favorite things I would set it to 'Everyone,' this allows people who are browsing Facebook to see your bio and if they like what they read they could request friendship/partnership.

However, for your birthday, if you don't want people to know how old you are you can set it to 'Me Only!'

 

Things Others Share

It's up to you what you choose but 'Friends Only' is sufficient, unless you want to know what your friends' friends are doing!

 

Contact Information

I would recommend that you keep your address and telephone number private by customizing it to 'Only Me',

 

Your Photo & Bio

So that the world knows who you are and your friends can find you it is good idea to upload a picture of yourself and write a short bio about your life, interests and hobbies..
