Tonight, I decided I needed to change some things on Facebook.
Time to move most of my communications from my Facebook Profile to a new, personal Facebook Fan Page
In the end, I prefer to like people rather than trying to friend everyone.
Reasons for changing
With all the issues surrounding security, I think the friend thing is way overrated. I have over 1,700 friends. Some people I know, and some I do not know. My personal profile on Facebook has allowed me to connect with people I have not talked to in years. However, I struggled with the whole networking aspect on Facebook. I like to meet new people and I really felt funny to ask someone to be my friend and encountering that Friend Message, ” Jim only accepts friends who he knows personally… ” In addition, I met other people who experienced the same process by wanting to connect with me after meeting at a networking event and being hit with the same message. It is very awkward.
Let me know what you think about this process. If you see any hurdles or major issues, I would like to know.
