    I know if you have a google plus account you can link all things google but I have not seen a direct link between anything google and facebook. Example, I just set up a google drive for some photos, Click share and to google plus goes the photo and to facebook goes the link url.

    These two companies are effectively in a death match to rule the internet.

    I've got a Google + account, but for some reason its not popular with my customers, but it helps in my Google Local rankings.

    In some regards, google plus is easier to understand your friends. However it is new and many people have invested a lot of time into Facebook and Facebook is more active.

    Finally figured it out! Not sure if I can remember how I did it, but got it. Thanks ELS Landscape for your feed back.

    I read somewhere there is a feed button on youtube. Facebook is more open to taking streams than google. I can post straight from my website to my FB wall. For some reason if someone shares that feed, the teaser breaks down into a link. I find it far easier to just cut and paste.

    I did spend some time on it, but not worth the effort to learn it all. Facebook is bad about changing things relatively often anyway.

    Never really considered the facebook thing....hmmmm.

    Do yall find that your customers go to the facebook pages?
    What type of info do you put on there, and how often do you post to them? I like the idea, but not sure I want to have to spend an hour on facebook each night posting pictures and stuff if there is no added benifits.

    Curious to hear what others have to say about this, and yes, im already hitting the search button on here directly after finishing this posting...LOL

    We are new to Facebook this year. Our goal is to utilize it as an information platform not a chatting location and we will try to post monthly at a minimum.

    Unless you're uploading a novel with a dial-up connection I can't see any reason to spend an hour. I posted two things this morning, one was a link that a trade group emailed me, the other was a picture a friend had posted to FB. The goal isn't to have the deepest and most original content, it's to have something that (for the few people whose news feed is shows up in) grabs someone's interest. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't so it's about minimal time per post - but posting regularly.
