A News Feed of Your Closest Friends

Go straight to photos and updates from the friends you care about most. Skip the news from acquaintances you don’t know well.

How do I add friends to my Close Friends list?

You can add friends to your Close Friends list to see more of them in your News Feed and get a notification each time they post. You also have the option to turn these notifications off.

To add friends to your Close Friends list from your home page:

  1. In the left menu of your home page, scroll down to the Friends section
  2. Click More, then click Close Friends
  3. In the top right, enter names of friends you want to add in the Add friends to this list box

Or, you can add a friend from their profile:

  1. Click Friends on their cover photo
  2. Select Close Friends

You’ll automatically get notifications when people on your Close Friends list post to Facebook, but you can turn notifications off or adjust the types of notifications you receive:

  1. In the top-right of Facebook, click in the top-right and select Settings.
  2. Click Notifications in the left column.
  3. Click Close Friend Activity.
  4. Select On Facebook to enable notifications, or Off to turn off notifications



How do I use friend lists to organize my friends?

To help you get started, you have lists for:

    Close Friends: You can add your best friends to this list to see more of them in your News Feed and get notified each time they post. You also have the option to turn these extra notifications off.

    Acquaintances: The Acquaintances list is for friends you’d like to see less of in your News Feed. When you add a friend to your Acquaintances list, their posts will appear less frequently in your News Feed. You can also choose to exclude these people when you post something, by choosing Friends except Acquaintances in the audience selector.

    Restricted: This list is for people you’ve added as a friend but just don’t want to share with, like your boss. When you add someone to your Restricted list, they will only be able to see your Public content or posts of yours that you tag them in.

To access these lists, scroll down to Friends on the left side of your News Feed. Hover over Friends and click More.

The Hackers Are Coming. Are You Prepared?

May 31st, 2015 Posted in Security Compliance | No Comments »

Hacking: it’s not just for Anonymous and big government anymore.

Cybercrime is ever encroaching and can happen to anyone. Including you and your business. In fact, it’s cost the global economy more than $400 billion, and it’s increasingly hurting smaller operations.

The problem goes far beyond the leaking of sensitive emails and sexy selfies. Targeted attacks against small businesses nearly doubled in 2013. And of the one in five that experience a cyber-attack annually, 60% will close their doors within six months as a result.

Over 1/3 of small biz owners do not currently
have any measures in place to defend against cyber-attacks.

But not you. Protect your business.

1. Be password-savvy. If your password is still "Password123," it’s time to get serious. Create unique ones for each of your accounts, and make sure they’re at least 8 characters long (with a few special ones thrown in). Use password managers like Roboform, LastPass 3.0 or Dashlane 3 to keep track…

2. Encrypt emails and valuable information. If a hacker does breach your system, encryption makes it that much harder to get away with critical data. Voltage, DataMotion, and Proofpoint are industry leaders worth checking out.

3. Back up your data. Copying your key company data onto a cloud-based system, such as Dropbox or OneDrive, or a USB hard drive takes minutes, and will save you time and anxiety if your system is ever compromised.

If you are currently struggling with getting traffic to your website, or converting that traffic when it shows up, you may think you’ve got a traffic or conversion problem. In Russell Brunson’s experience, after working with thousands of businesses, he has found that’s rarely the case. Low traffic and weak conversion numbers are just symptoms of a much greater problem, a problem that’s a little harder to see (that’s the bad news), but a lot easier to fix (that’s the good news). DotComSecrets will give you the marketing funnels and the sales scripts you need to be able to turn on a flood of new leads into your business.

Russel used his tool ClickFunnels to create the pages to launch his book.  Check it out here: ClickFunnels.

How To Use The Power Of Reciprocity To Sell Your Products Online

Here is Ian’s recent offer of free training that illustrates reciprocity.

How To Generate $1000 Per Week On The Internet Even You Are An Online Marketing Newbie

Ian Valeza says: If you have been marketing for a few years now.. you already know that one of the most effective way to sell a high ticket program is to do it over the phone or a webinar.

One of the hardest thing when you are using the phone to sell your products is that your prospect will become defensive the moment you start talking to them on the phone.

One of the main reasons that they will be a little bit defensive is because they know that you are calling them to sell them something.

If you try to tell your prospects that you will show them something that can help them solve their problem.They will normally give you an excuse to avoid watching your sales video. If you also try to make another schedule to talk to them on the phone. They will also give you an excuse so they can avoid talking to you.

A few years ago.. I learned that a lot of people are hated to be sold, and they will do anything to avoid the pain of being persuaded or being pressured to buy something that they are not sure that they want.

Now if you want to solve this problem. I will teach you a strategy that I learned back in 2012  after reading a book called INFLUENCE: The science of persuasion by Robert Cialdini.


In one of the chapters of that book I learned how to use the power of reciprocity in order to get high compliance rate from my prospects.

In one of the chapters in Robert Cialdini`s book, he said that as human being.. we always feel obligated to do good things to those people that are doing good things to us.

An example.. If you have a very  hard project that you have to finish, and you decided to ask your colleague to help you with your project.

What will happen after your colleague decided to help you in your project is that you will also FEEL SOCIALLY OBLIGATED to return the favor to him if he decided to ask for your help in the near future.

One of the main reasons that you may feel obligated to help your colleague if he ask for it is because you feel that you are indebted to him.


Now you might ask me.. how can I use this information for my online marketing campaigns?

Let me teach how you can use the power of reciprocity by telling you how am I using it to sell my high price coaching programs to my prospect.

Now one of the things that I will do when someone opt in on my capture page is to call them and just ask them some questions on how can I help them on their business.

Even though that I have no intention on selling anything to my prospect on my first call. My prospect will always think that I`m calling them to sell them something on the phone.

So how do I handle this objection? Its simple.. I will just tell them that I`m not going to sell them anything on the phone at the moment, and I`m just talking to them to HELP THEM SOLVE THEIR PROBLEMS.

I will also tell them that after I`m done helping them solve their problem. That is only the time that I will pitch them what I`m selling online, and I will not pressure them or force them to buy my product.

Its very simple right?  By telling them that I`m there to help them first, and I`m not there to sell them anything. I`m now putting their guard down, and I`m also using the power of RECIPROCITY.

Since I will give them free tips, and free information on how to solve their problems. They are now obligated to return that good favor that I did to them.

So when I set a day, and time that I will show them my product. They will feel obligated to watch my presentation. And this could lead to making them buy my products.

So that`s how you can use the power of reciprocity to your business. Start creating some free articles, and free videos that you can give to your prospects when you are prospecting them on the phone so they will reciprocate back to you when you ask them to see your video presentation.

I hope that you enjoy, and learned a lot from this article that I made.
