I’m NOT Friends With Your Business

Posted in Facebook by headoflettuce on December 4, 2010

You know time and time again I receive friend requests from Businesses and I am always torn, because often I do want to be friends with the owner or whoever might be running the account, but at the same time I feel like I am encouraging someone in a self-destructive behavior, it is like saying to your friend, sure fruitcakes are coming back into fashion, you should send them to all your client.

Fan pages let you track your impact on Facebook, they are designed for advertising, they even let you see the impressions on each post you put up.

Notice the impressions now show 🙂

If you are looking to build your business shouldn’t you have a way of measuring the metrics of whether or not you are making any impact, at least I always thought so, but those of you using personal profiles for your business are probably right, you’re probably better off being in the dark, not having a clue if anyone is reading your notes, forget metrics, they are over rated. Every time I hear someone talking that the personal profile is the way to go for business, I expect to see them on this list “Top 87 Bad Predictions about the Future” .
