Photos are a big factor in allowing us to connect online – when we see a facebook photo of someone we’re able to put a face to a name and feel like we know them better.
So if your facebook profile only has one bad headshot from 10 years ago, it’s time to upgrade and get a little more personal!
It’s time to add photos to facebook or curate the ones that are there now. Make sure that your profile photo looks friendly and up-to-date, and add a few more snapshots that provide a glimpse into your life. They could be of your home, your office, your family, your spouse, your pet, childhood family photos, or you having fun at a hobby you love.
Don’t worry so much about appearing “business like” in your facebook photos, instead upload some (appropriate, of course) facebook photos that will make your friends feel like they know you. Remember that we buy from people that we know, like and trust (KLT). And silly as it sounds, that picture of you and Rufus can do wonders to increase your “KLT factor”!
Facebook photos are also a fun way to interact with your friends – your friends are notified when you upload a new photo and you’ll often notice people leaving comments on your latest snapshots. Just check your “Notifications” tab (the globe icon at the very top of the facebook interface) to see when someone has left a new comment on one of your photos.
Here’s how to add photos to your facebook profile:
- While logged into facebook, click “Photos” on the left hand side
- The click “My Uploads” on the sub-menu that appears
- From there, click on “edit album” under the album name you’d like to add photos to
- Then click the “Add More” tab at the top of that interface
OR if you’d like to start a new album, go back to the “My Uploads” page and click the “Upload Photos” button on the top of the page to create a new facebook photo album.
