For people who already have a Facebook account I think the key to greater visibility lies in two small adjustments of your account that will take you no more than a few minutes and these are your profile picture and customized URL of your profile.
Customize your URL on Facebook
In Facebook you have the option to create a user name to display in the link to your profile, and thus making it more user-friendly and understandable. It’s simple and fast to create customized URL.
Log into your account and top right, near the search box, you will see “Account Settings” and from there the first option: “ Settings“, once there change the username.
Some advice before changing the user name, think you are going to choose it only one time as you will certainly not change it again. How do people know you? If you have a nickname (unless it is a stage name) used by your friends, acquaintances, people interested in making contact with you, they are going to search for a nickname.
Does your name has First,middle and Last name? Do people know you by your complete name?
For example, my name is Sushil Kumar Saini, but most people have no idea of the my middle name, my safest option for the user name is Sushilsaini, all together, so the URL does not come out – between first and last names. I can choose to put the full name on my profile, but i will choose the user name with which most people identify me.
The photo on your Facebook profile
How will we know if you are the person we know you have a don’t have proper profile photo?
In addition, you must ensure that “you” are completely visible in the photo. Some people use a picture of the whole body or with other people because you look good in them but others won’t recognize you. Facebook does not allow to use different photos as a profile picture, only one at a time (you can change whenever you want), so make sure that the picture serves as a photo.You understand me .
In my opinion, the best profile picture is a portrait that allows a clear view of the face. Do not forget that you can include all the photos of family or friends or things, travel, etc. you want. But for this purpose there are photo albums, the profile picture should allow others to recognize, not your children or your love, your pet, etc..
I know many people will say, “Well, but this is just for fun …” but at present, many companies or recruiters tend to look a little background of the person online.
I raised the problem here and I would also help with the solution . If you have a group photo or the person is in an environment or landscape and therefore occupy only part of the picture, use a photo editing program to select only the face and discard the rest. This is similar to what we would do if we have a printed photo and took some scissors to make the cut.
The most famous and professional program is Photoshop, but there are many free options that allow you to cut up online, just upload the photo, crop it and save the version in your PC and then upload it to Facebook.
