How to view your Facebook profile as others see it

Well many people like to know how their Facebook public profile would look. How does your Facebook profile appear to others and what is it that is visible when someone searches from you on Google or Yahoo or Bing. Firstly it is safe to say that only options that you have chosen to be visible on your Facebook public profile will be shown on your profile. So, once you check your public profile and would not want some information to be visible on your public profile. it would be good for you to go back and change your privacy settings.

So to see how your Facebook profile appears to others you can open Google and type your name as it appears in your Facebook profile and after your name type Facebook. This will bring up your public profile and probably a few others who have the same name.

You can then click on your name to see how your Facebook profile appears on the internet. You can repeat the same thing on other search engines if you are curious enough.


If there are things you see that you do not want to appear on your public Facebook profile you can always go back to privacy settings and adjust accordingly.


Alernately you can also type www.Facebook.com/yourfacebookusername to see how your profile appears to others when they search and find you online.

Is your FB profile Genuine?

Is your Facebook profile an enhanced impression of yourself? According to the University of Texas researchers the answer is no. Surprising they say; related to other dating websites where the profile and person in real-life do not usually match. Facebook users on the other hand give quiet an accurate account of themselves on the social networking site.

"Psychologist Sam Gosling at The University of Texas at Austin said: “I was surprised by the findings because the widely held assumption is that people are using their profiles to promote an enhanced impression of themselves.”

"Sam Gosling, collected 236 profiles of young adults on Facebook as well as a similar social networking site in Germany. The researchers used personality questionnaires and interviewed friends to determine the profile owners’ actual personalities, assessing traits like extroversion, agreeableness, openness, neuroticism and conscientiousness"


Well maybe it could be because people on Fb have real friends and you cannot pretend in front of real friends. Especially when many of those friends you have had from early childhood. It really does not pay to boost up an imaginary image of oneself which can get a lot of Boo's than Aha's

IKEA's Facebook Campaign

What does a company do when they do not have a lot of money for advertising. Start a Facebook campaign. Yes, that's what IKEA did precisely. They hired a advertising agency called Forsman and Bodenfors to run their Ad campaign. What the agency did was to create a Facebook profile for store manager (Store based in Malmo) and then took pictures of this beautiful town and uploaded it to his photo album. Then it put out word that the first person to tag their name to a product in the pictures, won it. So thousands of swedes started tagging themselves to pictures of sofas and beds and what not. The word quickly spread around the web. So personal pages have become the social medium to spread the word. This campaign is simply awesome. Brilliant thinking I must say.
