No doubt audio can enhance a Facebook page. However, the exception is with audio that just automatically plays when you land on the page. I am a professional voice artist and podcaster, so I can certainly appreciate the concept of adding the dimension of audio to enhance a page. However, like any other enhancement or effect, it needs to be added with prudence. Placing an audio player or file on a page is fine. Setting it up to automatically play when you land on it is not usually a good idea. This is a huge turn-off for some folks (including me) and can actually drive some visitors away from the page. Personally, when I land on a site or page that suddenly, without warning, starts to blare a voice, sound effect or music from the speakers, I instantly, instinctively, hit the back button. I don't like to be surprised or startled when I land on a page and on occasion such an event has even scared my kids. Visitors generally don't expect it and it can be somewhat intrusive. Most people want to control what, when and how they want to view or hear something and it is really best practice to allow them to maintain control over their surfing. There is absolutely nothing wrong with embedding audio files in your Facebook page (provided you have rights to the audio, of course) but I highly discourage auto play. Let your visitors decide how, if and when they want to hear it and they will enjoy the experience a lot more."
Another advantage of using OpenOffice.org that was not mentioned in the article is that you can open, edit and save documents in MS Office formats as well. In fact, I've used OpenOffice.org to open newer Word documents that older versions of MS Office couldn't open. It is freely distributable so you can install it on multiple workstations in an office without licensing issues. There are also a lot of tutorials available for OpenOffice.org online, so the learning curve is not steep."
Good suggestions. I have created Power Point Presentations that were a bit cluttered and relied on the script in the presentation too much. Such practices tended to overextend my presentations. These are good tips and I plan to incorporate the 10-20-30 rule in my next presentation."
