Facebook for Business

The thoughts of Richard Osborne on many subjects over the years.

Facebook for Business

There I was round at my sister-in-law’s house and she was busy tapping away on Facebook. I knew about Facebook, at heard about it in the media many times, but didn’t really think much about it. I;d even had a few requests from friends and contacts to “link up” on there, but still never really gave it much credability. Why not, because I struggle to see any commercial or business benefit to it – and I don’t have much time for friendly chatter over the web to be honest.

So why have I just spent the best part of the last 3 hours on Facebook?! I’ve been updating my Facebook Profile and hunting out a few old school friends, and even found a UKBF group setup on there. I’ve linked up with a few UKBF members on there, and even an old customer who has become a Labour MP now. Will this social network have any commercial benefit, probably not to be honest because like many others the interaction is too slow, but it’s been fun this evening so lets see. If you know me and we are friends, and of course you are a member of Facebook, then feel free to link up.

    I hope you’ll be pleasently surprised Ozzy!
    I have my facebook profile and also have a group for my kids organic t-shirts biz (www.arabellamiller.com). I use the group to seek feedback and share news and I’ve been really surprised by the amount of traffic that moves from facebook to my site.

    Keep an eye on those stats!
