It is no news that Facebook is for too Social Media addicts like me. If you are not on Facebook, your online business still has a long way to get into people’s mind. One of the best way to make money online is to be a smart blogger and a web savvy.

Being a smart blogger and a web savvy involves social networking. Your network determines your net-worth. It is through a social networking site, like Facebook, that you get to learn some very vital stuffs you need.

Facebook is huge and it is taking the world by storm already. Funny enough, you can get lost in it if you are not too careful. I am almost got lost too when I was making the necessary research before I did this post.

You can find a lot of Facebook Applications to use. For brevity sake, I will be telling you 7+ Facebook Applications You Must Use. I will list the ones I know and you will help me, yourself and other readers by listing the ones you know. That is why the “+” is part of the title of this post.

1. Facebook Marketplace

Facebook Marketplace lets you sell, give away, buy, ask, or search for anything you want. You can also support charities by selling for a cause. Marketplace makes it easy to see what your friends have posted and what is available in your area.

It has the following categories you can make use of:

  • Items for Sale
  • Housing
  • Vehicles
  • Jobs

2. Social RSS

Social RSS (formerly known as RSS-Connect) promotes your blog and/or business within Facebook using RSS Feeds. It supports all major versions of RSS and ATOM.

Social RSS has the following features you can use:

  • Add your blog or any RSS feeds to your wall/boxes tab or create a new RSS/Blog tab dedicated to your feeds.
  • Add RSS feeds to your Facebook Fan/Business Pages.
  • Feeds update automatically. (Please note that due to the large number of RSS feeds, it cannot guarantee a refreshing rate with their free service. If your Page requires a more rapid refreshing rate, please consider their subscription service at $2/month. (Please email socialrss (at) hotmail.com for details)
  • Your latest article will be automatically posted to your wall, and to your fans home pages selectively by Facebook.
  • It helps businesses to promote their brand further. This includes the development of branded apps and bespoke Fan/Business Pages to your specific requirements.

3. Professional Profile: Business Networking

This application allows you to:

  • Control Your Professional Identity
  • Separate professional information to a separate tab on your profile.
  • Tag Contacts
  • Use tags to organize your contacts and browse your network.
  • View Companies You Know
  • Quickly browse companies that you have access to based on your contacts facebook information.

4. Memorable Web Addresses for Profile, Page and Group

This application allows you to create a short, easy to remember personalized web address for your Facebook profile, group or page. You can share the link with other people, post it on forums, show it on your myspace page or print it on your business cards.

This application shortens long web addresses on Facebook to something like this:

Profile: http://profile.to/AnyNameYouChoose/ OR www.profile.to/AnyNameYouChoose

Group: http://groups.to/GroupName

For Pages: have a choice of domain names such as companies.to, band.to, politician.to, facebook.dj, or artist.to

5. Profile Box

This application allows you to place anything you want in a profile box. Make a miniature web page, show your latest blog entry, even embed your favorite YouTube video, embed a free e-book and other stuffs for your friends to make use of. Anyone can use it, but if you want things to look really snazzy you’ll need to know how to use HTML.

6. Twitter

This application integrates Twitter with Facebook. It allows you to update your twitter status without leaving Facebook. You can also see the tweets from the people you follow by using this application. With this application, you see what you and your friends are up to on Twitter and update your Twitter status, right from Facebook!

7. Selective Twitter Status

This is one of the cool applications I have seen on Facebook lately. For as many of us that use the No. 6 application, we get to annoy our Facebook friends who are not on twitter. Sometimes they see status updates which they do not understand. If you have had complaints from your Facebook friends or you do not want them to complain, you need to use this application. This application allows you to choose when to update your Facebook status from Twitter by ending your tweet with #fb

These are the 7 Facebook Applications I advise you to use. Now over to you. Is there any other cool Facebook Application you know that needs to be mentioned here?

You are free to add to the above list. Together we achieve more on Facebook. Stay tuned to smartbloggerz.com as we give you more tips to make your adventure on Facebook a wonderful experience.

Stay S.M.A.R.T as a blogger and as a Social Media User!

Okay, is it a marketing thing. I still can’t get to using the facebook thing and I don’t have a desire to. I hear a lot of people talking about using Facebook, but I guess with all the other stuff out there to generate leads, I’m not in the quickest rush to use it. I can’t see using it on a personal level, and I think it’s a waste of time to sit up there and say you’re going to the bathroom, or going to the store and all that other stuff….it’s just me, sorry

Thanks for the list of applications. Will be checking them out.

Although I wouldnt consider the marketplace that useful considering people who were after specific items would like to other websites that are more popular in their own category.
