Facebook guru Robert Grant is someone whose social media marketing information I truly value. (A few months ago I listened to all the videos comprising his Crowd Conversion 2.0 online course.)
Having just told a friend that Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter are adapting more and more features from the other two, I clicked on Robert’s email with the subject “If You Don’t Know This You Will Get Banned From Facebook!” because I certainly want to ensure that I don’t get banned.
What I found was a brief email with a link to a video. And I clicked on the video and watched in fascination as Robert demonstrated a new wrinkle in adding a friend on Facebook.
The openness of sending a friend request has been changed to a request model closer to that of LinkedIn, where you are suppose to know the person before sending a connection request.
And this is truly a game changer for adding friends on Facebook — plus a quicksand trap if you don’t follow the new rules.
Rather than explaining this new Facebook friend change, I urge you to watch this video by Robert Grant. The Facebook personal profile account you save may be your own!
