Lots of business started out on Facebook before they really understood how it works, and maybe you’re one of them. You set up a personal profile to use Facebook for your business instead of a fan page. That’s actually a violation of Facebook’s Terms of Use and your account can be cancelled for it. It… Read More

It used to be that admins of Facebook pages had to post everything to the page as the page. Sort of annoying if you want to post both general information for your fans and respond to something as yourself. Even worse if you have multiple admins and they all post as the page. Confusing and… Read More

As you might have already heard, Facebook just rolled out the new Facebook Pages design and features as a preview last night.

I don’t think it’s a good idea to post your Twitter stream to your Facebook page automatically.
