This “Facebook basics” article describes how to post or upload an image from your computer to a friend, company or business Facebook wall. This action is important when you want the friend or business to see your photo directly on their page. However, the friend, product or branded page will need to have their Facebook account set up to allow this type of Facebook friend interaction. If the business does not allow posts to their page the “Write something…” message box will not appear on their Facebook page.
Businesses often encourage followers to post comments, photos or videos on their page in order to spread the word about their products or services. Businesses like Mooers Volvo in Richmond, VA and Fur Fabulous Grooming in Chesterfield, VA actively encourage their Volvo and pet-lover fan base to upload photos as part of an open-ended Facebook contest. Winner photos are often featured in the cover photo of Mooers Volvo’s dealership Facebook pages. Facebook contest winners also receive a Volvo-themed gift for their efforts. Fur Fabulous Grooming selects a “Pet of the Month” from recent customers and Facebook followers.
