4 It creates awareness and is a tool to engage with the community Share and be social! Social media users are far more active and influential than the average internet user they want to share and be social! (isn t that what barbershop is about?!) Word of Mouth is key Very influential when choosing a hobby, booking a group to perform at an event people rely on other likeminded people to tell them about it!
5 Has it taken over from websites? No! It complements Although websites are still heavily used, the population of those engaging with social media (especially younger audiences) is growing Enables you to make it more interactive, discursive and sometimes appealing It s quick and free!

13 Facebook Group Place for small group communication and for people to share their common interests and express their opinion Either make it publicly available for anyone to join or require administrator approval for members to join or keep it private and by invitation only Like with Pages, new posts by a group are included in the News Feeds of its members and members can interact and share with one another from the group.
15 But Try and post at least once a week Highlight important posts so they stay at the top of the page Try and use just one member to post consistency in style and tone Label things clearly photo albums etc. Don t assume people will know Avoid setting your chorus as a person stick to Pages or Groups
