Okay, someone please explain Facebook to me. I signed up a while ago and have 40 or so "friends".
What is the difference between 'fan' and 'friend'?
I have clicked on links to get to a Facebook page and it says 'become a fan', but I don't see a link for becoming a 'friend'. Yet on my Facebook I don't see any link to becoming a fan but I do have a link for people to become a 'friend'.
I have searched the Facebook help and discussion sections and can not find an answer.
I also have a couple of 'friends' that just send me 'gifts' and want me to return the favorite and that is their only input which to me is a waste of time. Once or twice is fine but everyday is an annoyance!
So how do you use Facebook? Do you post a comment daily or less often to promote your shop or blog?
I have a link to my Artfire shop Homespun Alley and I have figured out how to put a product listing from my shop to my Facebook page but I always have to change the info somewhat before sharing.
Is there a way to separate your friends out and have a list of like minded artists and crafters? And a separate list of family so you can quickly go to their page?
I know what you will say! Do a google search! But it is more fun to hear from those with experience and direct knowledge, so please leave me a comment about how you use Facebook!
