However, today many people, especially men tend to lack any confidence at all. Some can’t even face a lady or stranger to start a regular conversation, and that’s pretty sad.

Yes, Facebook has the potential to boost your self-esteem and make you live life the way you’ve always wanted.
Who doesn’t have Facebook?
It’s pretty obvious that everyone has a Facebook profile and have developed the desire to check them every hour or even every minute.
Becoming an online social butterfly comes with a lot of benefits, and one of the coolest is that it helps boost one’s self-confidence.
Facebook allows you to connect and share photos as well as special moments with everyone in your circle. Doing this will help create a sense of belonging and acceptance, and it also helps improve your communication skills.

In essence, Facebook can portray you in a very positive light, void of the blemishes a mirror might reflect, either real or imagined.
So without further ado, let us explore three ways you can use Facebook to build your self-confidence and become the confident person you’ve always wanted to be.
Tip #1: Follow and Learn From An Expert
No one is an island of knowledge. It’s pretty obvious that we all need someone to learn a thing or two from if we want to become a better version of ourselves. All right, so you have to find a good role model and take cues from there.
Learn to surround yourself with positive and successful people while on Facebook. Do your research and get connected to an expert. Get immersed in his feed and learn from positive quotes, stories, and actions shown by the expert.
Here are some super cool guys I’m following on Facebook. Trust me, there are lots of stuff you can learn from them.
All you have to do is log on to Facebook and browse through Brendon’s fan page to get some amazing insights on what it means to be confident. I’ve also learnt a lot from him, I mean his videos has added a lot to my sense of reasoning and I believe it can do the same for you too.
If you dig a little bit deeper to know more about Brendon Burchard, you’ll find that he started out like a regular person like you. Now that’s awesome.
Gary is yet another no bull shit guy that I consider to my idol. He’s always hits the nail on the head and gets shit done like a pro. well, he’s a Pro.
Just a little word of caution, Gary is one “outspoken kind of guy” and he loves to use the F word every now and then. If you’re not cool with that, just get a self sensorship.
Tip: Regardless of what your role model posts or uploads, all of them will remain dormant and theoretical unless you take action by yourself.
So try to keep up!
Tip #2: Focus On The Prize
Thanks to Facebook, you can easily set yourself to win. You get the chance to see yourself in a positive light regardless of all the negative vibes around you. It’s pretty obvious that some of your friends will try to derail you with negative thoughts but remember to focus on the prize and become a better version of yourself.
The coolest thing about social media is the ability to stay away from folks that try to suck your energy and good vibes. Never waste your time and energy to change their perception, just STAY away from them. Speaking of focusing on the prize, you can post several affirmations on your wall that you’re able to converse fluently with anyone regardless of their gender or personality.
It’s pretty clear that you have the right to choose the type of friends you want to roll with. If you are surrounded by people who are pessimistic losers, sooner or later you will be fed by their negative trash. You got to know that all those messages are very toxic and are sure to draw unnecessary energy from you. So it’s in your best interest to stay away from them.
My personal advice : Keep your ears shut whenever you see them around.
Birds of a feather flock together
Yeah, birds of a feather do flock together. It’s sure to be great idea to join a FB group filled with like-minded folks trying to help and motivate each other.

Tip #3: Start An Objective / Goal Tracking Post On Facebook
You can also start a post on Facebook declaring that you’ll change the way you talk, dress or whatever else you want to change that directly affects your self-confidence. Treat Facebook like a personal progress diary and record your progress. You can also ask your buddies for support and advice on how you can become the confident person everyone loves.
Building your self-confidence might not be easy, but it’s very possible. While you’re training yourself to become a better you on Facebook be sure to keep the positivity flowing in real life.
Remember, the whole point of using Facebook to your advantage is to exhibit what you have learned in a real-life setting. Just be sure to change the way you talk, dress and try to remain positive. That’s not really hard now, is it?
