I have to admit that my activity on Facebook was minimal until I started getting back in touch with all my old journalist friends from the Air Force TV News days…I find Facebook so much more relevant and interesting than MySpace, which really feels like a one-way radio by comparison. I’ve always been a bit of a come-lately with the latest social media apps, but Facebook’s power and fun can’t be denied.
My question–and feel free to chime in with a comment or three–is how many of you use Facebook for business MORE than you use it for fun? I’m decidedly playing catchup with both Facebook and Twitter, so I am curious to get a reading on what other freelancers are using these apps to get done. What’s your experience? Business or pleasure?

I hate the Facebook interface. I do, however, have a client who wants to harness its power for marketing. In order to help him, I’ve been on FB a lot lately. Of course, I then run into friends who are on and it becomes sorta fun. BUT my F/T boss is also on…so I have 1 freelance client, 1 F/T boss and some friends. This just makes it confusing because I still have to watch my P’s and Q’s. What does that even mean?
I have both clients and friends on Facbook, so it’s a mix of both. I do have to be careful on the social end though, I wouldn’t want to say anything that alienates my clients.
This is definitely true–you do have to use caution if you are mixing business with pleasure!
