Holy cow, people love me…I can do anything…so long as I’m in Turkey!
Yeah, this place:
Think I’m joking? Check this out:
After that we get:
- Azerbaijan: 54 likes;
- Georgia: 35 likes;
- Bulgaria: 31 likes.
So what happened with Turkey? Freelancer, that’s what happened, and to be more precise, the Freelancer 2014 Scavenger Hunt.
As many of you know, I work on Freelancer.com and get a lot of writing and editing work from people all over the world. Once a year, usually in January, the site does a scavenger hunt where they throw a motley group of people together on a team. Last year I had one of the worst teams, with someone from Canada and two people from India and one person from Turkey.
So if you’re wondering why I have a shit-ton of likes on my Facebook page but no one comments and no one cares, it’s because people like niwomb1 took a liking to me.
Perhaps I should follow the route that Copyblogger took, and just delete my Facebook fan page. Or maybe I should just block anyone from Turkey from liking my page, or even some of those other, “less-desirable” countries.
Or I could just do nothing. I pretty much do nothing with Facebook now, or about as close to it as I can get. Actually, I’ve removed as many likes as I can, but that’ only about 200 before Facebook removes the “view more” option.
That’s the thing with social media and followers and likes and whatever – you might have a lot, but that doesn’t mean they’ll work for you. And when I mean work, I’m talking about doing a little clicking, making a little link and getting down to business. Far too often, your followers would rather just go ‘meh.’
So what can be done – delete everything and start over, like some fantasy role-playing game where your character has terrible stats and the dice are just waiting to be rolled again? Or press on, with Facebook dinging you in the rankings?
I don’t know, you have to decide for yourself. I’m deleting my page and starting fresh, and to hell with it. How about you? Any Facebook snafus or BS?
