My guess is that you're on Facebook a lot. I know I'm on it daily, both for business and for personal usage. In fact, according to this article on The Motley Fool, the average daily user spends 41 minutes a day on the platform.
If you enjoy spending time on Facebook and would like to work-from-home, here are some remote Facebook jobs and opportunities, as well as scams that you need to be aware of.
1. Social Media Evaluation Jobs
Much like a Search Engine Evaluator, or an Ad Rater, in this role, you will log on to social media sites, like Facebook, to search keywords and terms for quality and relevancy. But before you can begin, you must pass a three-part online test, which I've read is quite challenging — you must be able to pay great attention to detail. You can currently find these jobs on Appen and Lionbridge, where they've labeled these roles as Social Media Evaluation and Social Media Assessor respectively. According to Glassdoor.com, this position pays around $14 per hour.
2. Facebook Ads Manager
If you've figured the key to effective Facebook ads, there are lots of business owners who will pay you handsomely to run and manage their Facebook ads. You can easily find these remote jobs on sites like FlexJobs or Indeed. Or you can start your own Facebook Ad Management Agency from home. If you're not sure how to get started, Bobby Hoyt created a course called, the Facebook Side Hustle, which teaches you how to manage small business owners' Facebook ads. While I've not taken the course myself or reviewed it, it does come highly recommended by my friend Kristin from Believe in a Budget.
3. Social Media Moderator
As a Facebook Moderator, you will oversee Facebook Groups and Pages to ensure that group rules are being followed, questions are answered, and that spammers are kept at bay. In this role, you won't be working for Facebook directly; instead, you'll be working for business owners and bloggers who need assistance with their Facebook pages and groups. To find social media moderator jobs, check out sites like FlexJobs, Indeed, or Real Ways to Earn, which has a list of 14 different opportunities.
4. Social Media Manager
Social Media Management is usually an all-encompassing position where you'll curate content, respond to followers, run Facebook Lives, manage ads, moderate, and so much more. Usually, you can score these gigs if you have a marketing degree, social media experience, such as running your own blog, or even by taking an online course. If you're interested in this sort of work, I have a good list of social media jobs here.
5. Professional Jobs with Facebook
If you want to work directly with Facebook, they have lots of jobs for the taking! However, they don't offer many full-time, work-from-home positions. The remote roles that I did find were freelance positions that I found here on FlexJobs.
According to what I read on Glassdoor.com, Facebook does have a work-at-home policy where employees get to work-from-home on Wednesdays. It also sounds like most managers are pretty flexible when it comes to scheduling. If this sounds appealing, you can check out Facebook's Career Page. The types of positions that they hire for are professional roles, like Creative Strategists, Technical Sourcing Managers, Marketing Science Directors, Software Engineers, and a ton more. In fact, when I searched on their site for this article, they had over 2,000+ open positions!
Watch out for the Scams
Of course, because so many people would like to work for Facebook, scammers like to take advantage of this eagerness by promoting fake Facebook jobs. On the Scam Detector, he mentions two, one being “Facebook Fortunes Home Income Flow,” and the other being “Facebook Bonanza.”
With both of these, when you go to click on the apply button, it takes you to a landing page where you'll need to enter your credit card information to obtain the starter kit. It's structured much like the Easy Google Profits scam that was running rampant a few years ago. Once they get your credit card info, your account continues to be charged month-after-month for this bogus information.
When you're uncertain about whether a job is legit or not, be sure to take your time to research the opportunity extensively. Look on websites like the Better Business Bureau and Glassdoor.com — they can offer you a wealth of information. And when in doubt, always trust your gut.
While you do need to be aware of the scams out there, you can find legit work-from-home jobs that revolve around Facebook. And if you're willing to do freelance work, or you're okay with a one-day a week remote schedule, Facebook has a ton of positions that need qualified individuals like you!
Good luck and let us know if you decide to apply for any of these jobs!
