A musician friend just asked:
can you tell me how to see who likes my FB page? FB tells me all kinds of
statistics and such, and what I’ve liked, but I don’t see a list of who
likes me on my musician page.
Ah – good question! The official FB answer is “sorry, we don’t provide that”…
BUT there does seem to be a way around it (though not particularly useful unless you manually transcribe or screen-shot the displayed list):
I just received a message sent via the Contact page on this site: a polite inquiry from someone wishing to provide content for my blog. As I have no current plans to outsource writing about what I know to others, I sat down to send a quick reply to that effect. But since her email’s domain was from what was probably her business website I first decided to check that out.
What I found (using Chrome) was such a mess that even if I was interested in 3rd party content I would never deal with her:
If you are a multimodal user of social media you may wish at times to alert your audience in one area of your activity on another area, e.g., post a link to your new blog article on your Facebook page. There are various tools that make this easier – usually “share” buttons allow you to repost to another social media site, e.g., sharing your Instagram photo to your Twitter feed.
But sometimes you want to share in a way for which a handy button does not exist, such as embedding a link (URL) to a specific Facebook post and its comments in your email newsletter. How do you find the URL of that post? Facebook just wants you to use their “share” button to stay inside their site so that doesn’t tell you the link.
Tip #1: More Ice Cream For Less $
I get ice cream several times a month at local chain JP Licks. This week I accidentally discovered how to get a lot more ice cream for less: order a Chipwich, which is a serving of ice cream between two chocolate chip (or other type) cookies.
While exact quantity probably depends on the server, I discovered:
- The single Chipwich is prepared when you order, so you may request any ice cream flavor (not just vanilla).
- The amount of ice cream is at least equal to their “small scoop” which in a cup or cone costs $3.99, and is much more than their “kiddie scoop” costing $3.09
- A Chipwich = a “small scoop” + 2 three-inch-diameter cookies, all for $3.29!
Bonus JP Licks tip: Join their Cow Card loyalty program and get points for every purchase (either by swiping the keytag or using the iPhone or Android app code). 50 points gets you a $5 credit for free food!
