One of the biggest objections I get with people not using their Facebook for business is that they don’t want the people they work with to see what they have been up to in the weekend
Or they don’t want their family to see they are embarking on a new career in Internet Marketing.
So they are not keen to take part in Facebook on their profile and write stuff and every now and again add an affiliate link or link to their website and then wait for all their friends to make smart or rude comments to them.
It has never been an issue to me, as if my family or friends are not interested in what I do then to bad, unfriend me ….
Anyway there is a way round it all and I have a video to help you on your way.
The thing is that we all have lives, and they include the following:
- Family things
- Coffee ( did I already say coffee )
and lots of other things that crowd into our lives, that’s the way it is, so why should our Facebook be any different to that.
Facebook For Pleasure
What is Facebook for pleasure? Great question, that’s when we include everything on our profile that has to do with our everyday lives.
Here is a great way to look at it. Your Facebook Profile is all about you and the things that interest YOU. So lets say, your Facebook profile is all about Conversation. It includes images, videos and stories about what you have been up to, your kids news, grand children, holidays, latest cafe you visited, well anything really. It’s catchup time as you would if you meet your friend at a Cafe and chatted over a cup of coffee, or whatever you drink. In most cases I find Facebook to be an amazing positive place to hang out. So if feeling a little down then go read some peoples comments or Status updates.
Facebook For Business
What is Facebook for Business? Another great question… glad you asked. Well many of us do business On Line and so we can use Facebook for that as well. Now I would say be very careful about using your profile to spam people your latest Affiliate links, that will make them un-friend you pretty smart. Best idea is to setup a Fanpage or Business Page as they are known then you can go and put the links up there and chat business in there, that way you keep your friends happy.
I do add business links into my personal profile, not often as to spam, but every now and then I add one, and also every post from this blog also makes its way into my profile status. But as stated my personal page is for conversation and my Business Page is for Content.
If you keep that in mind you will do very well on line and in Facebook and you will make all your friends happy by being respectful.
So here is the Mantra….
Facebook Profile = Conversation
Facebook Business/Fanpage = Content.
Now go forth and have some fun. Watch the video and then comment let me know your thoughts.
