Facebook Changed Everyone’s Email to @Facebook.com; Here’s How to Fix It

Facebook just removed everyone’s email address from their profile and replaced it with an @facebook.com email address without asking you.  Oh, and by the way, you have an @facebook.com email address  …

If you want the email addresses you actually use to appear on your profile, here are the easy steps to modify your profile:

1) Click “About” on your profile and scroll down to the box with your personal information.
2) Click “Edit”.
3) Click the circle next to your @Facebook.com email address to change the setting to “Hidden from Timeline” (unless you want to keep it on your profile).
4) Click the circles next to the email addresses you would like shown and change the setting to “Shown on Timeline.”  You can also adjust privacy settings here so that your email addresses are public or visible only to friends or whatever custom setting you prefer.
5) Important – click the “Save” button at the bottom of the Edit popup.

Your @facebook.com email goes to your Facebook messages.

Facebook Displays Percent of Users Who Like Pages Who Have Seen Specific Posts

Facebook continues to quietly add and tweak features behind the scenes, without fanfare or announcements. The latest example is the addition of a percentage link to posts on brand pages, which enables page administrators to see what percentage of the users who like the page have seen the post….

But We’re AC (or HAC) … How Important Is Social Media For Our Brand?

I think most programmers agree that social media is an important component of today’s marketing mix for CHR, Rhythmic, & Alternative/Active Rock formats.  Hot AC has generally come along for the ride, too (especially brands with high profile talent).  But, I’ve recently talked with some programmers and managers who asked how much time should be devoted to social media on their AC, Country, or “upper demo” formats.  Quite simply, my answer was “more.”

Not only are “upper demos” the fastest growing cell of new Facebook users, but the psychographic profile of their most active users matches perfectly with the traditional Adult format target.

Adults with Children actually tend to be more active with social media, according to a recent study published by Media AuditContinue reading

Foursquare’s “Mayor” of Indy

I just happened to catch a post to the AroundIndy blog with current Foursquare check-ins as of September 22.  Not surprisingly, Scotty’s Brewhouse is on top.  But, it might surprise you that Scotty’s has three of the Top 10 check-in venues for Indianapolis.  And, if you take out the huge venues that host tens of thousands of people for events such as the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Lucas Oil Stadium, Verizon Wireless Music Center, Victory Field, Conseco Fieldhouse, and the Indiana State Fairgrounds … Scotty’s Brewhouse would be the Top 3 check-in venues in town!  That’s impressive!

Scott WiseScotty’s owner, Scott Wise, has executed perhaps the most successful social media marketing strategy in the area.  And, he does most of it himself.  Brewhouse employees are empowered to Tweet and engage customers online; but the @brewhouse Twitter and Facebook pages are run by Scott personally with a mix of promotional messages and personal anecdotes.  He has figured out the perfect balance of letting you know about a 10% discount if you check-in while also making you feel like he’s your next door neighbor (even if you’re only “friends” on Facebook).

To the professionals and business owners who say they don’t have time to control their social messages directly, or don’t see the value in having a social media strategy, Scotty says “I have 600 employees, 7 restaurants, twin 1-year-olds, and a 3-year-old son.  No excuses.  If I can make it work, you can too.”  (courtesy Blog Indiana)

Oh, and be sure to order their loaded tater tots!
