What, You're Not On Facebook?

Two men and a womanOur world has become smaller, more interconnected, and our relationships more accessible.

Being a member on sites such as Facebook.com is now so common that almost everyone you know in your circle of friends and through business has a profile there.

But what about people who aren't on Facebook?

Do they need to be there?

Are they missing out?

Getting With The Times

If you're not on Facebook, no doubt you've heard from a number of your family members and friends about how great it is, how much fun it is, and certainly how useful it is.

Nearly everyone is on Facebook! If you're not on it, you risk feeling left out of conversations had based upon information shared through the website, don't see pictures, and could be the last person to know about the birthday party going on at the home of a good friend.

People who enjoy using tools such as Facebook often wonder why their relatives or friends, who aren't using Facebook, have yet to make the leap.

Similarly, if you run into a fellow voice over artist who isn't on Voices.com, doesn't it seem a bit odd?

Do they know what they're missing?

Maybe you know someone who is a great voice actor but they haven't discovered how to market their talent on the Internet yet.

There are many talent who are represented by agencies who haven't even created their own website let alone decided to join a voice over marketplace to increase their visibility online.

They are also unaware of the great resources available and job opportunities such as podcasts, blogs, and other channels used to engage and interact with their peers in professional yet friendly setting.

In a way, these people are in the same boat as those who are not yet using Facebook...

Do you feel they are missing out?

If you know of someone who you feel would benefit from bringing their business online, this is your opportunity to invite them into this world you've discovered.

Know a voice talent who needs an invite? Send them to Voices.com to find out what they're missing!

    From sharing an international cup of tea, to actually getting paid work, Facebook is a great way to keep in touch with the VO community. For me it's another piece in the puzzle, and while some things are perhaps better exchanged in a forum (eg Voiceover Universe), or more personally in a direct email, Facebook does have a valuable role to play in keeping us on our toes, helping our VO friends, and sharing encouragement.

    meet you there!
