Facebook Fridays - Courtesy of Anita Clark Realtor


I spent about an hour this week lurking in 2 different social media Facebook groups and was very surprised how many "experts" were telling users to post business information on their personal pages. More mis-information that is eventually going to catch up with those who utilize this practice. Posting biz information on our personal pages is a violation of FB's Terms of Service and can get your page permanently deleted.

While FB has been pretty lax about this practice in the past, they can change their mind at any point and start cleaning house. Post your biz content on your fan page and avoid any issues if/when Facebook starts to crack down!

Other than lurking, I only had a few minutes this week to spend on FB, as I focused a lot of my social media time on Google Plus instead. It is important to give all of our core social media sites periodic attention and being more active on G+ was a bit overdue for me. FB will get some love this week...no doubt about that!  

It is sharing time Rainers...PLEASE stop by the Facebook Fan Pages below, LIKE their page, and leave a comment. It is always nice to reciprocate, so if you are visited, please take a minute and return LIKE those that stopped by your Facebook Fan Page. Helping each other helps us all on social media...enjoy Rainers!

Pat: Technically it is a TOS violation. However, FB would really have to clamp down to identify/punish everyone who "occasionally" posts a biz article on their personal page though. If I had to guess, I would think they would start with the most serious offenders first, if and when they start doing that.

It is something I enjoy doing. Thanks for the encouragement, Amanda.

It looks like it will be another busy RE weekend, Roy.

Absolutely correct, Andy. Hopefully we all want to rise, not sink.

Good morning Anita, even if it was not a FB violation, I don't think our personal page is the right platform to post business, just tacky but that's my opinion. Thanks for the reminder on G+, I must spend some time there as well.

Those are my thoughts as well, Beth.

Will: It is always better to be safe, not sorry, especially since FB gives us a platform to host our biz material.

Reach consumers where they are at...it definitely works, Noah.

I love that you jumped right in. You are very welcome, Mark.

YAY...way to go John!

Welcome aboard Sandra. I have you on the list for next Friday. ;-)

Anita good job in pointing out the bad advice.  So I guess AR is not the only place where bad advice is found from time to time :)

Hello Anita Clark 

Posting business on the personal pages is definitely a no-no!

George: I have even seen it mentioned here in AR before. UGH!

No doubt about it, Lisa. It is not a good move.

I can always count on you...thanks Rebecca.

Debbie: We never know where our next referral partner will come from.

I am more convinced than ever...Facebook needs an "ad agency"  it woud increase their reenue and make it a still more viable medium for advertisers.
