Have you ever decided to be friends with someone because you like their dress and accent?

Kate Toon and I met at We are Podcast 2016. She was wearing an 50's style dress and handed out cookies so obviously I knew we should be friends.

Kate has built a really successful business on Facebook and she spends a lot of time on Facebook, so she knows A LOT of stuff about the platform. So we sit down and chat Facebook, dog voices and photo shoots. LOTS of laughs and some really deep thoughts too. Love this episode.

Making friends on Facebook.

"Who wants to have a life when I can be on Facebook?"

"Of all the social media platforms, Facebook is the most casual"

"To be successful you try really really really hard and you try thing and you fail and you turn up and you be consistent"

One Small Step:

Spend an hour or so deleting things from your Facebook feed that don't serve you, cull groups, friends, unfollow and replace it with things like Ester the Wonder Pig.

And your super power would be....

Go back in time. As a Bloke.
