Does your business have a Facebook page?

Have you taken time to manage the settings for that business pages? If you’re like me, time is of the essence and having  to do one more thing on Facebook feels mind numbing.

But managing your page is necessary if you don’t want offensive and disagreeable posts seen by every fan on your page. Believe me you don’t want any and everything posted on your business page.  And I’m here to tell you, Yes, you can manage what visitors post to your page.

Read on and I’ll show you how.

Here is one thing you need to know about your Facebook page?

When someone tags or mentions your business page on their profile timeline or business page it will show up as a post on your business Facebook page  in the section called “visitors post”.

Personally, I would like the opportunity to respond to the person first and thank them sharing  or inquire more if the mention they posted was negative. For this scenario, I have my settings set to “ Post Moderation.”

#1 Access Your Facebook Page

Facebook is constantly trying to find ways to get us to share content to our pages, so there are multiple way to get access to your business page on desktop.  You can go to your Explore tab  on your profile home feed or you can go to the Quick Help (bookmarks) to see the list of pages you manage.

3 Things I’ve Learned  While Trying To ScreenCast With Facebook Live and OBS

3 Things I’ve Learned While Trying To ScreenCast With Facebook Live and OBS


Screencast with facebook and obs

Let’s face it, Livestreaming is not going away, it’s here to stay! I was hoping it would be a phase but it’s not. Live stream video will only continue to be apart of our daily lives, especially if you’re in business!

According to a report by Cisco, 80% of all internet traffic will be coming from video. If you’re like me, getting your video marketing strategy together so that you can  increase your video content is a high priority for me.

And livestreaming is the best way to start creating video content meanwhile growing your business and connecting with your audience.

Now that my video marketing strategy has been created, my next step was to learn how to use Facebook live and OBS (Open Broadcasting System) so that I am able to do screens sharing streams with my Facebook group. As I was going through this process, there are a few things that I’ve noticed and I wanted to share it with you, if you’re new to livestreaming so that you can be aware of them as well.

1. It Will Take Some Practice To Get Use To The Set Up With Facebook Live and OBS.

Initially, I thought I would be up and running within minutes. That was not the case, the initial setup was easy and I had no trouble uploading the software, but what I had envision to be able to do on Facebook is actually a process, I wasn’t prepared for.

The livestreaming experts make everything look so easy!

2. Prepare For A Video Stream Delay 

Excuse my ignorance, but I believe the stream delayed while streaming would be shorter when using a program like OBS, but that wasn’t the case. On Facebook live I found there to be a roughly 20-25 second on screen delay that can make being on camera when you’re new slightly awkward if you’re not expecting. Later on I also found out that settings, internet speed, and laptop can all be factors that cause your video delay. How long your delay might be is really person dependent. 
Why is this important to know?
If you’re presenting to your group and ask a question it may be up to 30 seconds before you may see a response from your audience. When you decid to livestream with Facebook getting comfortable with small silent pauses will be part of the learning process.

At least, that’s what I’ve discovered.

3. Don’t Be Afraid To Ask For Help

Depending on the type of bells and whistle you want to add to your livestream, will determine if you need help with your livestreaming events.

It’s okay to ask for help when your livestreaming. You may need help seeing comments or questions. Having someone who can be your helper in your community is a great stress reliever, especially when you have other things on your mind, like being interactive with your community. Livestreaming in general is a process that has a learning curve like everything else, it doesn’t have to be complicated.

And you don’t have to go through the process alone! Find someone in your community to help, a mentor, or even a tech savvy friend. 

If you’re not sure who to ask, if my schedule if open, I’m offering to be your community helper, all you have to do is ask.

Are you using OBS to livestream on Facebook? How have your experience been using them together, share any tips that you might have to make the process easier in the comments.

Have You Reached Your 5,000 Twitter Following Limit?

Have You Reached Your 5,000 Twitter Following Limit?

Twitter Limit

Have you reached your 5,000 Twitter following limit? And now you’re unable to follow any more of your target community?


To continue growing your followers, you’ll  want to consider removing your inactive, fake, and unfollowers so that you can continue connecting successfully. (If you’re not sure how, read How To Remove Inactive And Unfollowers From Your Twitter Account blog post, I wrote earlier)


Why is this even necessary?

Twitter has a stupid rule that once you reach 5,000 Twitter community members, you can not add more than about 10% of your current following. (Remember all numbers are relative, and slightly differently per account)


According to Twitter’s policy, It’s done to limit the strain of the platform and limite the abuse.


The sad truth is, we really don’t authentically connect with that many people on Twitter and we don’t NEED more than 5000. But having the option to connect with more is an option that is needed based on your determined marketing goal.


What are some reason to have more than 5000 Twitter following?

  • The number of people you’re connected with on Twitter can be a valuable asset to your business and personal brand.
  • For market research
  • Bring in new customers
  • Hey, who doesn’t want a bigger Twitter community!


But whatever your reason is for wanting more followers, having the option to do so, is what we all want on any network.

So how do you get around this small but aggravating issue?

Let me start by saying, Congratulations on reaching your 5000 Twitter following limit!

I’m happy you hung in there on Twitter to achieve that goal. But what can you do about the hold on your account.

  1. You can wait till you have more people following. If you’re impatient like me, this is probably not the option you’re hoping for.  But if you are not in any rush. Keep tweeting, keep engaging and being helpful to others, and you will find that people will add you to their community.
  2. Manually unfollow accounts. You can go to and start removing people you haven’t connected with, those that haven’t bother to follow you back, and followers who have given up on Twitter. It’s another time consuming option but faster than the first and will free up your account so you can continue growing your Twitter community.
  3. Use a tool to unfollow accounts. There are quite few tools that you can use that have free and paid version to help with making the process quicker and less time consuming. One tool, I recommend is ManageFlitter. It has a freemium, which allows you to remove 100 people every 24 hours and there is a paid option that allows you to remove the upper limits allowed by Twitter. If you don’t have time, then consider using any number of tools that are out there.


Growing your Twitter account shouldn’t be a hassle! Take control of your account so that you can connect with anyone AND everyone that you want to.


If you absolutely, don’t want to deal with having to do this yourself, then have someone do it for you! Let us save you time and effort to clean up your Twitter account, connect with us and tell us how we can help you. Get all the details here.
