The eagerly anticipated Part 2…
7) Do not Tag Photos on the same day that you upload them.
This will encourage people to view all of your photos instead of just the ones that they are tagged in. Then, go back and tag all of these photos a day or two later. This second step is essential so that your act of Tagging appears in people’s News Feeds for a second time (in addition to the time when you simply uploaded).
6) Do not comment on photos on the same day that you upload or tag them.
This is for the same reason as in #7. Upload photos for attention. Comment on them later for more attention…
5) Encourage people to change their settings so that YOU appear in their News Feed more frequently.

4) Toggle your Profile Picture constantly.
This is vital. It is done to increase the number of times that you appear in other people’s News Feeds. They will see not just your name, but a visual image to help keep you top of mind. Keep in mind that you do not need a constant supply of new pictures. Simply choose your best ones and toggle back and forth between them.
3) Call attention to your Relationship Status by toggling it back and forth to “Single”.
This is #4, only applied to a different component of your profile. It is recommended for females only and is executed by changing your relationship status from “Single” to no relationship status listed. Now check your Wall and delete the evidence (the line item that says “Charlize is no longer single”). Wait a day, then go ahead and toggle it back to “Single”. Your wall will now show a nice fresh new message reminding the world that “Charlize is now single”.
2) Properly format your Profile Picture Thumbnail.
People will see this version of your profile picture more often than the entire photo itself, so it is vital that the thumbnail doesn’t cut off your head.
1) Only allow other people to “co-star” in your Profile Picture strategically.
Do not take this lightly. As Confusious probably would have said, were he still alive: “When in doubt, cut them out.” Others should only be allowed to appear alongside you when they are a clear value-add. Examples include: Someone of the opposite sex that is impressively hot, someone that is known to be good looking but happens not to look good in this picture (on a relative basis you will look good next to them), a cute baby, a cute dog, etc, etc.
