    Great suggestions, especially on tagging photos. To point 4, Facebook has very stringent rules on competitions and sweepstakes on its platform. Liking a page to be eligible for a prize violates Facebook's promotions guidelines. Furthermore organising a promotion can only be done using a Facebook app. To check the rules, here's the link: http://www.facebook.com/promotions_guidelines.php

    Some great points are mentioned in this article. One additonal option for a hotel Facebook page that can put your hotel above the competition is allowing a fan to make a hotel reservation directly from your Facebook page. [edited for commercial content]

    Excellent post! Definitely agree on the use of contest/promotions. In addition to the benefits listed in the post, the increased page activity and interactions created by promotions held on Facebook positively impacts the page's EdgeRank, which means that content from the page is likely to be shown to more Facebook users more often! Alicia - You're right about Facebook's promotions guidelines. It's also important to make sure an attorney reviews the rules, terms and conditions so that the contest or sweepstakes sponsor and administrator don't run into unintended issues. We successfully run Facebook promotions for clients all the time leveraging a custom Facebook app - but it's important that you get it right to make the biggest impact for the client and to stay out of trouble.

    Some good suggestions here. The key element on Facebook however is BE HUMAN, cut the "officialness" out of your communications on social networks. Respond, make good mistakes (touchy concept) and be human. Nobody wants to follow a FB page that's all about self-promotion and as stiff as an official website.

  14. Great post! The incorporation of regular image posts are a great way for hotels to engage with consumers. It gives their audience the opportunity to visualise the hotel so they can make a more informed decision before they make a purchase.
