Facebook has got to be the biggest thing to happen to the internet since Google. With over 1 billion active users across the globe, there is no doubt Facebook is the best place to connect and share with long lost friends. As you connect with friends you also want to share what is happening in your life especially your exploits. It keeps your friends somehow entertained and want to get to be apart of what is going on in your life. So three things you want to do on Facebook before you take a trip at least to make it more enjoyable even for your friends.
1. Post your specific travel plans with a ‘call to arms.
It is common to find many who post where they have been after they have already been there. Well you can try updating your status with your travel plans and inquire from you’re friends places you should see on your travel. This will create for a great conversation and could actually act as a heads up for friends who might be living where you’re visiting. Talk about killing two birds with one stone.
2. Use Facebook city pages to find friends.
Depending on which part of the globe you are going to, it is interesting to find others who have already been there or are there. Facebook has a feature where it has become possible to do exactly this. Search for whichever city you are going to, New York, on the lower left side you should find a field that says “Friends who have visited New York”. Find out from people who live or have lived there about their great exploits.
3. Reach out to your weak connections.
Armed with No.2, this could be a great opportunity for you to reach out to some of your friends you rarely get to speak to. You have something in common to talk about, just don’t make it look like an ambush, find out what they have been up to and build from there. Ask about what you should do while there.
As much as Facebook is there to connect people we could also learn a lot from people.
