Honestly, so far I have seen no advantage to this, but there it is. I’m still learning how to use the Fan Page, since it’s a bit different than the personal profile.
Shameless self-promotion time: I would appreciate a few “likes” ;)
I guess that the Facebook Fan Page will become more useful once I have more news about my novels? Not sure.
Do you guys have a Facebook Fan Page? Do you like it? How do you use it?
I also have a personal profile on Facebook (with my married name), from where I like other authors/writers Fan pages and where only add real-life friends. That profile was created way before I decided to pursue this career of writer and author and I have tons of photos from me and my real-life friends there, from when we were babies to today … I don’t think my real-life friends wouldw ant the whole internet being able to see those photos.
I say this because I had a few authors/writers/readers who I don’t know in real-life add me as a friend through my personal profile. Don’t get me wrong, it’s nothing personal, but I won’t add you there. I’ll like your fan page, yes, but I won’t befriend you with my Facebook personal profile. Only if you become a real-life friend too, then the game changes.
I love all my online friends and the writing community, I love chatting and tweeting and blog commenting, but there are parts of my life that will remain private to me and my family and my close friends, and my personal profile on Facebook is one of them.
