Should I Use Facebook as My Website?

I have debated this topic with many business owners in the past; however, according to the terms of use with Facebook, here is the proper way to get your business on Facebook.

  1. Create a personal account.
  2. Create a page for your business that you can administer from your personal account.
When I first created my Facebook account, the only purpose I had to be on Facebook was for business reasons. Well, according to my way of thinking, but my probably was I had several different businesses. I did not want to have to create a separate account for each one of my businesses so I delved into the barrage of Facebook tips. The one I picked is the one I promote… have a personal account and create a business page. On some of my business pages, I also grant other accounts administrative rights so that they can post updates as the page as well. Works very well and they way it should work.
Should you have an account that is under your business name? No, and here is why:
  1. You will have to confirm the like of every new person.
  2. You will not be able to add any applications to your business page.
  3. You will not be able to separate business from your personal friends.
  4. You will not be able to change your landing page if you ever get into any type of promotions or customization of your business page.
  5. You will limit yourself in the ways of social network marketing if you do not have a business page.
There may be those who disagree with me, but this is the way I do it and what I recommend to others about how to do it.
