For Better Or Worse…. It’s Timeline


I just pressed the button.  The one that could change my entire business.

A Frugal Chick’s Facebook Page is now on Timeline.

This has had BIG consequences for some of my blogging friends because their readers can’t see them in their newsfeed anymore.

So if you like seeing me in your newsfeed (or you just want to like me on facebook) would you mind coming over and “liking” this status update?

This tells Facebook “hey- I like A Frugal Chick and want to know about all the amazing deals she finds.”

There are many new features for businesses with Timeline that are going to give us a chance to communicate with each other better- I just need to master them all.

So keep an eye on A Frugal Chick’s Facebook Page- great things are coming!
