The Etiquette Guide to FB Page Liking and Sharing

The Etiquette Guide to FB Page Liking and Sharing..

Seems these days like Etiquette is a dying art in many facet’s of life and in the world of cyber space are we any better.. Chivalry seems to have seen it’s day and when we are on FB so many assume to browse or comment on a page with out the respect of a “Like” or a reciprocating Share.

Why do we go on FB and spend hours primping our pages, choreographing our photo’s writing enticing bits of bloggery for someone to come and see yet not offer support in the way of a like in appreciation of what they just participated in..

Do we not see the people behind the pages, is it too easy..?

I personally never look through a page unless I “Like” it first.. As a page owner the Like is a gesture to me that acknowledges you stopped by and appreciated what you saw.. Liking is also permission or a theoretical Knock at the Door, can I come in and take a look.

I respect it takes time and energy for someone to build and network their page..

I am yet to be at a point with my page that I receive much feedback, I am conservative in size right now yet I know I will always appreciate my Likes and consider them as I build and grow my page..

I think it is natural to want to be recognised for a job well done or a pat on the back or a hand shake welcoming you into a club.. There is so much to be seen and found on the internet it is also nice to Share what you discover..

Sharing is another way to recognise your likes.. I have discovered when going through my likes as Boss Mare Betty FB does not always give me notifications yet I do know when I share, this does for sure..

Any ways.. It is always wonderful to know someone might be interested in your voice or perspective on a topic that is common.. Reciprocation in the land of social media is how we can gauge where we are..

Much love and respect to all the pages I participate on and like as well as gratitude to all my likes and sharer’s because the truth at the end of the day is that we need people to like and share us so we can be seen by the people that would enjoy or even benefit from our pages..

*As of recently I have started to have pictures posted directly on my page and for that I shall return the favour on yours* xxoo

Coming up on 100 FB Likes

Hey Kids..

Since starting this page and watching the news feed and other Doll’s pages the one common is having exposure so people see you and attaining “likes”

The like, comes from the physical participation of the viewer, by waving their cursor and clicking is a declaration of sorts.. It says that someone somewhere is digging something you have done.. The digital handshake or pat on the back..? Membership to a club or is it done blindly and easily..

I often wonder why a person decides to like my page.. I am very curious and usually about stuff most miss.. I really like “intention” and what drives a person to react..

I am very much Boss Mare Betty, my persona is my truest self with my volume turned up.. I used to think before that it was Betty that gave me an avenue and the confidence to do things I may not have other wise done yet I have realized she is me and I am of course her..

Just as this page is an extension of me and enables me to show my likes and interests in a visual way.. Like a cyber scrapbook I take pride and pleasure scoping out eye candy to bring back to my treasured page and for this I have been rewarded with likes..

I started this page originally to clear of the inundation of Pin Up imagery and the sorts I would post on my personal FB..  There are many sides to me and Pin Up and Tattoo culture is indeed one of my many YET it was consuming more of my FB than the other sides so it was time to allow this energy to grow and manifest on it’s own..

The growth of this page shows me that anything is achievable..

I no longer see myself  as just a wife and mum of three.. My daughter does not just take my photo’s, she has grown in her own ability to see through the lens and capture amazing moments.. I don’t just do my own hair and make up, I am making visualizations in my head come to life through my artistic interpretation of myself..

I am not just a gurl,, I am that gurl that likes cute things and is proud of it..

For this I am so great full to all of you that have found your way to this page.. My little milk crate in the corner that gives me a platform to speak about me..

For every like it is a milestone for me.. I take the time to look at who you are (as much as your privacy settings will allow)  If you come as a page I also like to see you, appreciate you and often share you..

I am at 80 likes, which is beyond crazy in my mind.. I was happy at 8 and get the best feeling every time I see that number grow..

So I decided it was time to share my love of you all and blog this note for you.. Simply because I feel compelled to make this page fabulous even more so because of you.. It is important that your time in my house is a good time..

I have learned in this journey that this page is no longer just me, it includes all of you..

So here I stand a few likes from 100.. I have not sought out, asked for or campaigned likes.. I feel that you all are here organically.  Since the beginning of this page 100 seemed the “Official” number of likes that put you on the map and because of you I already feel like I am on it..

Much love and gratitude
