    Default Replacing the Community Page Employer Page with your Facebook Business Page

    I found a tutorial last night and it's really easy to do...just did it this morning for my personal page.

    Thanks for the link Patrysha. I may need to take advantage of this in order to set up my own Fanpage, though I do want to keep my profile and Fanpage separate.

    Well it really is just the link to your employer on your profile page. Just making it easy for those who know you on a personal level to click through to your fanpage...but then I'm not one who believes there should or could be complete separation...where you work is just another aspect of your personality as much as the television shows you watch or the music you listen to :-)

    I want to keep the two separate because for me they are. On the business side I want to interact with lots and lots of people. On the personal side I'll be happy to cut it off at the people I've actually know in person. Quite honestly I have no use for Facebook in my personal life as I have better ways to communicate with the people I know.

    There's no reason though for all the business connections to be even remotely connected to my family for instance. They don't need to see those conversations (assuming they ever occur) and I'd rather not have to micromanage the one account so this one is allowed to see x and that one can't see y. If I can only choose one or the other the personal account will go and I'll set up the fanpage.

    See if people I don't know and don't want to be friend with send me a friend request, I direct them over to the business page. I only put up information that I'm okay with the world seeing on FB anyway. The sensitive stuff is phone material anyway.

    But you don't have to mix them. It's just an option.

    Are they two different accounts for you? One personal and one business? Or is it one account and someone visiting the account could access either page under the one account?

    I log into the same account, but they are separate. My personal page is Patrysha Korchinski | Facebook and the business one is Local Shopping Marketing and Promotions - PK Marketing Solutions | Facebook

    Cool thanks. I'll check out both.

    When I first joined Facebook they didn't have fan pages. I was building the personal account for business and now my account is filled with lots of people I don't know and really wouldn't interact with personally. Some I would, but most are people I know of more than actually know. I'm happy to connect with those people of course, but I know I'm not doing it the idea way right now.

    I've been bookmarking things on Facebook for months about how to set up fan pages, etc. One of these days and months when I have more time I'm going to redo things at Facebook as well as LinkedIn and I'll do some research for using Twitter better as well. One thing I want to do with Twitter is create a design for my profile page. There are even a couple of niche design related social networks I'd like to be more active in.

    I have no idea if they had fan pages when I first joined. I joined because all the people at the radio station were on it. Twitter was my thing even back then. I built my first fan page for the local summer shopping promotion in 2009. I've got 10 profile builds on tap for this month so far...it's a growing little niche.

    I have to redo my Twitter page...I had a custom one that I made but it became obsolete when they changed the profiles. I haven't done much with LinkedIn at all. I keep meaning to look into it and study how to use it more...but that keeps getting pushed aside. (I really don't think too many of my target market will be lurking around there anyway)

    Of the three I'v definitely spent the most time with Twitter. Of late that's mostly been to use Twitter as a research tool. I have a variety of saved searches to listen in on what people want and what they're saying about my content. I should put a little more into posting links to interesting content. I bookmark a lot of things and no reason I can't share some on Twitter too. I just need to get into the habit more. I'd also like to tweet a few interesting thoughts that come to mind. Again it mostly needs more of a change in habit on my part.

    I read an article in Website Magazine about improving your LinkedIn profile, which convinced me to spend a day or two working on it. Where I think LinkedIn could work for me best is in the question and answers. I know I should track some topics and spend even a half hour a week answering questions where I can help.

    With Facebook I haven't yet decided what I want to do other than separate the person and the business. Mostly that means setting up the fab page and unfriending most everyone on the personal side. I have to figure out the best way to do that. I'd prefer not to offend the people I unfriend, since most are people I would like to connect with, albeit in a different place.

    All 3 are on my agenda for 2011. Not immediately as I have other things to do I think more important, but sometime this year I'd like to spend a month developing a social media strategy. Part of that will also include being more active in a couple of design related communities, where I'll likely be most interested in the conversation and likely make the most genuine and most beneficial connections with people.
