When I saw this post on Amy’s profile, I had to ask permission to cross-post it here. Often we just need to hear the fundamentals of social media to reinforce what is true.
I’m not an expert. I’m an enthusiast when it comes to Social Media and Facebook. For my personal brand, I prefer Twitter, but that’s another post altogether.
Nothing frustrates me more than getting a friend request from a business, group, band, restaurant…whatever. Why?
Because it is wrong.
I realize nobody reads Terms of Service when they sign up for ANYTHING. I only do about 50% of the time I sign up for something. But, if you are any of the above mentioned, you are violating those terms by making a regular account (where you have to add friends) and, basically, doing it wrong. Not only that, but you’re limiting yourself.
- A regular account can only have 5000 friends. If you have a business (or band, etc.), do you want to have LESS THAN 5000 customers/fans??? What business wants to put a limit on that? Read more Facebook for Business – I don’t want to be your friend. By @TheFabulousOne
