Facebook Fan Pages. Why do I need one?

Facebook Fan Pages aren’t the same as your personal page.  They are for promoting specific activities like your business or favourite sport and allow you to keep your personal stuff separate.

Once you “Like” a Fan Page, their posts will show up in your Fan Page news feed.  This way, when there is something that you believe will interest and benefit your fans, you can share to your Fan Page wall.  You can then “share” to your personal wall if that’s appropriate but this gives you the ability to focus on business to business rather than flooding the walls of your family and friends with stuff that is not relevant to them.

Stop spewing your business stuff all over your friends and family.  Stop sharing your personal stuff in the business arena.  Trust me, neither group appreciates the same things as the other.  They don’t like irrelevant content and will appreciate the separation.

Make it a great day!
