2014: PROMO: Facebook is my second choice for Social Media to promote Virtual World projects

Facebook is my second choice 
for Social Media to promote VW projects
VW= Virtual World
Use Facebook to promote Virtual World projects.
Second Choice?  Why not first? 
  • Facebook has twice as many people
  • But it depends on what you are looking for
  • Looking for girls from Ghana who want to get to know you better?
  • Looking for hundreds of requests to join in games?
  • Like to see trick ads that look like regular posts? 
  • Then Facebook is for you.
  • Looking for people with serious tech experience and serious interests? 
  • They already went to G+
Fortunately it is not either-or.  Because Facebook does have a lot to offer
Facebook has lots of groups focused on topics of interest in Second Life and other virtual worlds.  If you find a large Facebook group with interests in what you want to promote, Facebook could well be your top choice.  
  • In Facebook, search for 
  • virtual worlds
  • My search there turned up over 1000 groups
  • Note the membership size
  • To narrow the search, use search on page
  • In Chrome, press Ctrl+f.  Search bar will appear upper right
  • Other browsers may respond to Ctrl+f  too
  • The search will include title and description of the group.
If there is no such group, you might want to form one.  But you might also want to form a Google+ community.  Then you could get the best of both worlds.
