As a business resource, Slideshare stands pretty much head and shoulders above most other content platforms.

From presentations to educational content and more, you can find information and curated media on pretty much any topic you have an interest in.

As a research solution, Slideshare offers analysis from some of the smartest minds on the web across all verticals.

These include standard presentations, videos, multimedia and more.

Which brings us to this week’s Sunday Share.

Every week, I’ll be sharing a presentation that catches my eye and where I feel you might be interested in the information inside. These will range from business to content to social media to marketing and more.

This week, a short and useful presentation from Genevieve Lachance, founder and owner of virtual assistant agency VA Simple Services.

With Facebook coming under increasing scrutiny from consumers concerned about privacy as well as brands concerned about Page reach, this presentation offers advice on both staying with and leaving Facebook.

Enjoy.

I think it is important to not have just about any Facebook page but to utilize your following in the best way possible. You should share not only interesting updates but also some interesting images, videos and the likes.

I will not dump my Facebook account. It is a very useful social media website to me. I get intouched with my relatives on Canada and UAE. And this is the best we can do, updating or accounts, messaging, chatting, video calling.

Hi Danny, it was wonderful post, though i believe facebook has its own space in social media and Google + ,LinkedIn are one of the best ways to get leads for businesses in 2014! Thanks! for such nice post!

Whatever you do it needs to be relevant and make sense, while people use Facebook you'll be able to talk to them - spend money on ads if you have to but otherwise keep engaging rather than selling. Every monday i leave email updates form people, newsletters are so 1999 and lack the here and now of other platforms and often look like they are created by 100 year old vicars. Just my thoughts :) Whatever we do as ourselves or our brand it's got to be engaging, inviting and inspiring :)

Enjoyed that one Danny full of interesting information. Pagereach of Facebook is going down is worth knowing. I've been invited to join a few groups so I've sort of being dragged into "Joining targetted Facebook groups" I'm also using the other social platforms mentioned. My #1 piece of saocial advice... join Buffer and use their Chrome app to set up your various platforms. I love it even more than Hootsuite. However if you are tweeting images, use Hootsuite, the image quality is much better than Buffer.

Definitely reduced my time and efforts in FB. Also, my firm is converting our training program social section away from FB and to G+.

Very welcome, miss, and the same to you!

And yet email is still the preferred methodology for contact for businesses - something to keep in mind when building a B2B connection (social's definitely more suited to the B2C market when it comes to actual interaction). But yes, please at least be interesting or inspire action as opposed to a bland presence that's there for the sake of it... Ugh.

Interesting, mate - like you, I far prefer Buffer as my scheduled curation tool, but hadn't heard of the image quality being different. Is that for just images, or featured images on posts?

Hi Randy, I hear you. Facebook has (until now) been a great revenue source for this blog (with "revenue" meaning traffic and conversation), but that's been changing over the last few weeks. It's a great reminder to not put all your social eggs in the biggest basket, and build from your own content while utilizing multiple channels for building awareness.

Hey, Danny. Just confirming. Your traffic and revenue from Facebook have gone down during the past couple of weeks (minus the past few days which can be chalked up to holiday drops)? I just want to be sure this is a fact and not an assumption based on reach (which is all most people focus on). Many studies I'm seeing show that engagement are flat for most, making any drop in reach close to irrelevant.

Hi Jon, Yep, definitely down. Screenshot 1 is FB insights, and these are down by about 2/3 from previous quarter: http://dannybrown.me/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/Danny-Brown-FB.png The screenshot below is from Google Analytics. FB used to account for about 65% of traffic (mainly from my page), so you can see there's a drastic drop there too, with Twitter almost overtaking it. http://dannybrown.me/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/Overview-Google-Analytics.png So their "improvements" are taking their toll, and I'm pretty active over there.
