Facebook has always been a platform to serve some great content, whether it's your way to let people know about what you're doing or to promote your business. Since it's a widely used social media app, here's how you can use it to its maximum capacity. So here are a few less known secrets, which will enhance your Facebook experience even more.
1. Mute people who are seen more regularly on your timeline
We all have some friends that will always post a little bit too often than regular, and there's a way you can solve this issue by merely muting them.
Let's take, for instance, you want to mute 'X.' Click the ellipsis on the upper right corner of one X's recent post, then you can choose to either hide all posts, snooze or hide that particular post. And there you have it, no more posts that flood your timeline.
2. Get a copy of ALL your Facebook data
You read that right. Just a few clicks can download all of your Facebook data.
This data includes photos you have shared or created, comments, messages all your likes, and reacted to posts and even your list of followers. If you want a copy of few or all of these categories select:
Facebook settings> Your Facebook information> download your data. Select the category or multiple categories that you would like to download, then select your format and media quality, select create the file, and then you're done!
3. Download an entire album from Facebook
Waste no more time in individually downloading your picture when you can do the entire album at a time. To do this, use a Chrome extension called Downalbum for Chrome. In addition to this, you can download Facebook videos
full HD and save them to your computer or Smart Phone.
Later go to the album you wish to download, select the Down album icon in your toolbar and select the 'normal' option. This will open a new page with the album and then use the Ctrl+S option to save the file.
4. Deactivate the 'Seen' time-stamp from Facebook messages
This trick is helpful for themes when you don't want the person to know that you have read their message. This can be done quickly by using the Chrome extension Unseen for Facebook, once it is installed click on the icon in the toolbar and turn it on. This will deactivate the seen time-stamp.
5. Customize 'Call to action' tag
If you're a business and using Facebook as a platform to grow, your call to action button is one of the most essential components. This trick allows you to choose a CTA, thus making sure that your viewers notice it. To do this, hover your mouse over the 'Send Message' option and click ok edit. This will allow your viewers to see your 'Click here to know more' or 'Follow the page' option.
