Getting started



Your new social network is PACKED full of powerful features and you just dont know what to do first?

well here is a list of things to get you started.



Creating content

I'm sure your excited to get underway but lets go over a few FIRST STEPS

A community is only as strong as the people who use it...  with that in mind your new members are going to come with pretty high expectations.
Create some awesome content for your members to feast on when they show up!


Gather some popular content from around the web that is relevant to your communities interest and past a link back to that page/site by pasting the URL in a blog or post on your site.
This will add content that is interesting to your group. Don't worry about the fact that your sending your members away to another site... they will come back.  
You want your site to be an information hub, with people coming and going all the time. This is part of what makes facebook so successful, if you think about it there really is not much genuine content on facebook, its content people have shared from other sites. 



Members
 
 
Now that you have loaded your site with videos, blogs, links and events its time to start inviting members. 
There are a few ways to invite members to your new community, here are a few of the most common. 
 
 
  • Using the facebook invite button
  • Importing from contacts via email
  • Posting links in other media outlets ... but please DO NOT SPAM people
