    Default Facebook Strategies

    As everyone may know, Facebook has now become an integral part of social life. People have been interacting in ways ranging from pokes to status updates. Facebook has also been evolving into a way to meet people and potentially even form whole relationships online.

    Although this is excellent for maintaining contact with friends, one big challenge I view is successfully meeting people on Facebook. It's already tough enough to friend a random person and then approach them without ever having met them in your entire life.

    Before I get to the meat of my questions, I will throw out what I do know and what some of my successes, failures, and learning experiences have been.

    I have discovered that the poke game is extremely effective at sparking interest in a girl. What I do is simply poke her, and when she pokes back, I ask "Did you poke me?" (NOTE: I did take this approach from a different thread). From there, I maintain humor in the conversation and keep the ball rolling.

    Other openers I have used involve the "Alien neg", "congratulations " and the "Who are you?" openers. The alien neg (also got this from a different thread) goes along the line of an alien invasion taking all of the hot people and telling the girl she's alright, but you're going. If delivered right, it has the effect of drawing immediate responses. The next one is congratulating someone for being in your thoughts. So far, I have had no success with this one. Same thing goes for the "Who are you?" opener. It involves asking who a girl is and then telling her that you were just messing with her. I believe that one failed just because it was Facebook, not text, and someone I was already familiar with.

    As for other things with messaging, it's good to remain relatively quick with your responsiveness. In terms of speed or length, I mean both. It's good to entertain her and entertain yourself as you're doing it. I've discovered that if I do entertain myself as I'm in the conversation, it becomes incredibly easier for me to move the conversation along. Never let the conversation fall into the gray chasm, as I would picture it. This means boring messages that consists of "lols" "okay" "nice" and typical questions. If you keep it interesting, the discussion will stay interesting itself. Last, but not least, keep it short. You started it, you finish it. If it seems things between the two of you are going extremely well, then this rule does not have to apply.

    One thing I have also learned and serving good use is basically pimping out your profile. I went through mine and deleted all stupid posts, cut down irrelevant or bad profile information, and made sure the best looking pictures of me were most prominent. I can't say what effect this has had yet, although I would say it certainly looks more entertaining and mature.

    Now, here comes the unresolved questions I have. So far, I have been practicing these messaging techniques with people I am already familiar with. However, I have no idea how to approach a woman on Facebook out of clear nothing. There is also a more confusing scenario for me where I don't know the girl, I have poked her, but I do know her friends very well. My final concern is post content. I realize it is always important to show value, but I remember Tyler Durden stating that women really don't care about things like money, jobs, and blah, blah, blah (I do agree with this by the way). The jig of it is this: what kind of statuses and comments can I post that will show I am a man of interest?

    Additional ideas or insights into this topic would also be highly appreciated. You can never get enough knowledge into these sort of things.

    Messaging people you don't know on Facebook has a negative stigma associated with it. It's not for meeting people, imo.

    Think about it - you want to be different from all the guys that message random girls. Granted, they're all AFC (I've seen the sh1t they open with, it's embarrassing) so if you were to take a different approach, it might work out. But, how many girls do you know that take kindly to that stuff? Personally, I don't believe in that stuff because that's not what Facebook should be used for.

    When it comes to people you already know (just acquaintances, not friends), you have a MUCH better shot at getting somewhere. I think the main rule is having a reason to talk to them. That can apply to someone you have a lot of mutual friends with, too, btw.

    I'd treat FB Game the same as text game. It's just easier that way
    Always leave her better than you found her.

    Thanks for the feedback! Yea, I've only chatted with girls I have actually met and who know me. I have done none of the random messaging stuff, and I'm glad that I didn't do it. I can also agree that facebook game is the exact same thing as text game.

    Looking on this and reading it now, I'm just thinking "Wow, I remember when I used that stuff. That was so stupid". I guess that comes from me becoming more experienced than I was when I first wrote this post.

    At least they were on girls I had no interest in, and who wouldn't affect my game. Rookie mistakes of way back when :P

    I wouldn't recommend FB Game unless you've actually meet the person in real life at first. Girls will tend to be rather defensive if you just add them and talk to them. They'll know you don't actually just want to meet them or think it.

    I was added by this girl, after 20 min I opened her and we had a small talk, got her number, texted her, sexting to a meet up which she had to flake, I just flaked after an other one. Its not really motivating when you've never seen the person at all. She was a HB6.5 anyways. Atm its dull texting and so on. I rather meet the person, text abit, talk on the phone and meet. That's way less AFC to me.

    I look back to my AFC days all the time and laugh at myself for how different I was. Now, when I see my friends acting how I would, "my heart aches for them and I try to reach out and help...but to no avail " or something like that haha. They're very resistant to advice that makes them get out of their comfort zone and I see that because I used to be like that not too long ago (I'd say around mid-november is when I got my sh1t together).

    Practicing game on girls you have no interest in is the best way to practice frame control as well as openers, etc. Not necessarily Kino, but hey, nothing ventured, nothing gained
    Always leave her better than you found her.

    I can definitely say Amen to that Vicodin!
