Part of the function of this blog is to give ideas and tips on using social media tools to promote yourself/your business. This isn’t directly related to your business, but it might make your Facebook life less stressful! The functionality used to be easy to find but for some they seem to have buried it a bit deeper than usual. Anyone if one of your Facebook contacts is constantly posting new Status updates and you’re getting tired of hearing so much – this is the way you can turn the volume down without annoying them! Go to the following link when you’re logged into Facebook http://www.facebook.com/feed_prefs.php and you’ll see lots of options on altering the things that appear on your profile page. To ‘turn the volume’ of someone down, just enter their name in the ‘I want to hear less’ box – you can remove it later if you choose to.
