Please take note – as of Oct 19, Facebook has changed things on us again, removing the obscure link that I mention in this post. So it doesn’t work this way anymore. We’ll just have to wait and see where and when it resurfaces again.
I’m leaving this post up, since there is an interesting discussion on displaying photographs on Facebook, and possible issues this may raise for photographers.
Facebook tips – checking recent comments
Some will already know this, but in telling a few friends about this, none knew about this … so I’d like to share it here. Also, Facebook keeps changing things on us, so it is quite likely then that many Facebook users haven’t noticed this yet.
If you have a Facebook fan page for your photography (or any other subject really), people can leave comments to the photographs. But quite often it will be a comment on a photograph posted a few weeks or months back. It’s an impossible task to trawl through them all every time and make sure you’ve replied to those you need to reply to. I try to be diligent about it, and always make an effort to reply where necessary.
Then a few weeks ago I noticed a neat little link on the FB fan page … when you click on the Photos tab, you will see a link that says “view comments”. When you click on this, then you will see a list of photos with their comments, ordered by the date the latest comment was made.
An easy way to catch up every day or so with new comments, and keeping a conversation going with your audience / clients.
