  12. @socialwebcafe Yes I am and after the first day of work at the new ebay job! #SocialCafe #TBW
  13. @TheBlogWorkshop Oh yes!! Already told my family I need quiet time during the workshop! #SocialCafe #TBW
  14. Q1 What do you view as differences between personal profiles and fan pages? #SocialCafe #TBW
  15. Q1 What do you view as differences between personal profiles and fan pages? #SocialCafe #TBW
  16. @socialwebcafe My personal page is more for friends and family while my fan page is for networking. #socialcafe #TBW
  17. @PinkMama68 Sure thing. U got me so jazzed that I mentioned U on a hangout today. Don't worry. Didn't mention by name. :) #SocialCafe #TBW
  18. A1 the most obvious is how you interact with the pages. Personal pages allow you to interact differently than fan pages do #SocialCafe #TBW
  19. A1 tonight is so important because I know many people who wonder which to use for their business/blogs or if it matters #SocialCafe #TBW
  20. @TheBlogWorkshop personal page is for sharing personal thoughts/family; fan page is for topics relevant to your brand #SocialCafe #TBW
  21. @ToddInKC Congrats! It's always beautiful to do something you're enjoying :) #SocialCafe #TBW
  22. @TheBlogWorkshop I use my personal page more for family/friend stuff and on my fan page everything else- blog posts #SocialCafe #TBW
  23. A1 Profile represents person; Page represents Brand (or service, etc.) #SocialCafe #TBW
  24. By choice? If you have ?s feel free to ask :) MT @Joannenyc5 I do not have a FB page for my blog yet #Socialcafe #TBW
  25. @socialwebcafe LO wow- thats awesome! Love it! I also bragged about you guys too to a couple of my blogging friends LOL! #SocialCafe #TBW
  26. @socialwebcafe my blog is only about 6 weeks old so I just have not gotten around to making one yet but I want one! #TBW #SocialCafe
  27. Going to piggyback @socialwebcafe & reiterate that if YOU are your brand you should have a separate fan page for business #SocialCafe #TBW
  28. Ah, thnx ;) MT @PinkMama68 @socialwebcafe I also bragged about u guys to to a couple of my blogging friends #SocialCafe #TBW
  29. @Joannenyc5 Awesome, you're on the right track. I know there is a lot to be done, just take it 1 day at a time. #SocialCafe #TBW
  30. Yup! MT @TheBlogWorkshop ...if YOU are your brand you should have a separate fan page for business #SocialCafe #TBW
  31. @TheBlogWorkshop I answered Q2- SMH! Personal Page=Family/Friends and Fan Page=Brand/Blog #SocialCafe #TBW
  32. @Joannenyc5 I didn't realize you started blogging recently. You have really dived in! Good for you! #socialcafe #TBW
  33. As @GlitteryGlossy pointed out, even if you don't plan to use your social page yet GRAB the name and protect your brand #SocialCafe #TBW
  34. @KrystalS Thanks I have been working really hard on it! I love to write! #socialcafe #TBW
  35. I find that I am pretty much neglecting my personal pages now that I have business pages that need tending! #socialcafe #TBW
  36. @ToddInKC @YourLifeAfter25 LOL! Don't get me started, I feel like they should have hired us for the relaunch... #SocialCafe #TBW
  37. @TheBlogWorkshop ugh I just rejoined myspace too so I wouldn't lose my stuff ... #socialcafe #TBW
  38. @MommaOTheHouseo Buffer helps me schedule content to all my FB pages and is a huge help! #socialcafe #TBW
  39. @MommaOTheHouseo Automation is very helpful but always remember to set aside some time to remain organically social #SocialCafe #TBW
  40. Q2 In what ways do use your personal profile versus your fan page? Same? Different? #SocialCafe #TBW
  41. I hear ya! MT @MommaOTheHouseo I find I pretty much neglect my personal pages now that I have biz pages that need tending #socialcafe #TBW
  42. @MommaOTheHouseo I find that I post more fan page than personal page I don't want to bomb my family with my blog posts LOL! #SocialCafe #TBW
  43. @socialwebcafe VERY different. Personal page is private. Blog fan page is very much public! #socialcafe #TBW
  44. Q2 In what ways do use your personal profile versus your fan page? Same? Different? #SocialCafe #TBW
  45. A2 I have more than one page and keep content relevant to that page #SocialCafe #TBW
  46. @socialwebcafe I post fun links to my fan page and my blog posts. I save my personal page for kiddo photo. #socialcafe #TBW
  47. A2 Somewhat the same, I engage the same way but the personal page is just that..personal #SocialCafe #TBW
  48. @TheBlogWorkshop Slap me, Da Vinci lol I thought I was already following. I am now ;) #SocialCafe #TBW follow -> @TBWUniversity
  49. A2. As far as Facebook, I have a personal page PURELY because you have to have one to have fanpages and it's private LOL....#SocialCafe #TBW
  50. A2 On the biz page I keep it more to what I think my fans would find interesting and helpful #socialcafe #TBW
  51. @GlitteryGlossy I rarely use my personal page as well. I update family photos but that's about it. #socialcafe #TBW
  52. @ToddInKC Good point, Todd. So, do you find that those engaging on your profile see a little bit more of who you are? #SocialCafe #TBW
  53. @TheBlogWorkshop I use personal page 4 pics and posts about kids and fan page 4 blog posts, blog events, share others info #SocialCafe #TBW
  54. Share your Facebook fan page with me so I can make sure I like it! #socialcafe #TBW
  55. A2 You don't put personal "talk" on a fan page....it's for fans/brand supportsers #SocialCafe #TBW
  56. @TheBlogWorkshop I don't know if FB had it from the beginning, but now there is the option to sign up just to have a page. #SocialCafe #TBW
  57. It's good to have the separation because fans are there FOR that content so give it to them rather than bombarding friends #SocialCafe #TBW
  58. Yes, please do share your FB Fan Page if you'd like likes and Profile if you'd like friends. I'll add to summary. #SocialCafe #TBW
  59. @socialwebcafe Trust me they didn't LOL... they shut down my other page for that reason -_- #SocialCafe #TBW
  60. @socialwebcafe Yes and no, depends on if they KNOW me haha. I said don't mix personal with branding/business, unless needed #SocialCafe #TBW
  61. I think of FB Pages as more "broadcast" like. One way (with some engagement) interaction. #SocialCafe #TBW
  62. @TheBlogWorkshop U R so sweet. At first, I was like, do no what? Ah, gotcha. Thanks, sweetie ;) #SocialCafe #TBW
  63. Another reason the separation is good is sometimes you just want to VENT... your fan/branded page is NOT the place for it #SocialCafe #TBW
  64. Rejoining the chat. :) My page is here:  http://on.fb.me/12ixqLY for a company in the construction industry. #SocialSocialCafe
  65. YES YES YES MT @TheBlogWorkshop: Another reason the separation is good is sometimes you just want to VENT #SocialCafe #TBW
  66. @TheBlogWorkshop totally agree - business should be uplifting and positive - which is what people gravitate towards! #Socialcafe #TBW
  67. It doesn't really make sense to vent on a brand page. I doubt the fans really care about whatever problems you're having #SocialCafe #TBW
  68. Q3 What are your expectations or goals in using Facebook (i.e. relationship, promotion)? #SocialCafe #TBW
  69. Something to keep in mind is that BRANDS speak with other brands, your venting session can go viral within their group #SocialCafe #TBW
  70. Q3 What are your expectations or goals in using Facebook (i.e. relationship, promotion)? #SocialCafe #TBW
  71. A3: Build a base of followers and deliver them interesting content - whether its mine or sharing others! #socialcafe #TBW
  72. @socialwebcafe I'm trying to play nice w/ FB so more people see my posts in their feed. I'm finding straight text is best. #socialcafe #TBW
  73. @TheBlogWorkshop this is something I would like to know when considering making my brand page #SocialCafe #TBW
  74. Are any of you using the advertising tools on Facebook? What are your thoughts or experiences with it? #SocialCafe #TBW
  75. A3: We use our brand page to bring fans more info about our products, and job opportunities mainly. #SocialCafe #TBW
  76. @TheBlogWorkshop I'd love for it to drive traffic to my blog, but it seems it only does if you pay for sponsored posts :( #SocialCafe #TBW
  77. @TheBlogWorkshop I find that the new updates/requirements make advertising a bit difficult on FB #SocialCafe #TBW
  78. Facebook has a tricky way they distribute content, lol it's different for profiles vs. fan pages. @KrystalS @socialwebcafe #SocialCafe #TBW
  79. @TheBlogWorkshop haven't tried the ad tools yet - interested in hearing others experiences! #socialcafe #TBW
  80. On profiles images do better, whereas on pages they say imageless posts gain more traction. @KrystalS @socialwebcafe #SocialCafe #TBW
  81. @beautygnome Hi Jessica. I interviewed a guy that successfully gets traction with FB ads at $6 per post. $24/mo. Timing. #SocialCafe #TBW
  82. Facebook is a GREAT example of why it's important to draw your community back to your blog/business, they limit you a lot #SocialCafe #TBW
  83. A fanpage on Facebook should be a stepping stone for building your fan base & relationship...it should NOT be the end point #SocialCafe #TBW
  84. @TheBlogWorkshop You really have to READ FB's ad rules, there are things that can get you into trouble if you don't #SocialCafe #TBW
  85. @PRAlicia_13 I don't remember the stats, except that I thought, "Wow! great ROI" He got quite a bit of traffic off of it. #SocialCafe #TBW
  86. AND its even harder to get your ads into Newsfeeds #SocialCafe #TBW
  87. If Facebook shutdown today, you shouldn't be in jeopardy of losing your fans/relationships "food for thought" #SocialCafe #TBW
  88. @socialwebcafe Good to know! I'm trying to talk my company into spending some $ on our social media. #SocialCafe
  89. @ToddInKC Hey Todd. Are you referring to the concept of getting them back to your site? (in re: FB rules) #SocialCafe #TBW
  90. Thu new episode on Social Web Cafe TV: Marketing Momentum w/Charles & Deborah  http://www.socialwebcafe.tv alSocialCafeTBW
  91. @PRAlicia_13 I wish I could offer you stats. I'll have to do my own case study :) #SocialCafe #TBW
  92. @socialwebcafe I appreciate the info either way. :) I'll look into it a little. Thanks! #SocialCafe #TBW
  93. Q4 After today’s chat, what changes do you think you will implement on your FB approach? #SocialCafe #TBW
  94. MT @TheBlogWorkshop If Facebook shutdown 2day, u shouldn't be in jeopardy of losing ur fans/relationships #foodForThought #SocialCafe #TBW
  95. @socialwebcafe No, advertising within FB itself, and by trouble I mostly mean kicked off. #SocialCafe #TBW
  96. Q4 After today’s chat, what changes do you think you will implement on your FB approach? #SocialCafe #TBW
  97. @TheBlogWorkshop I need to remember to interact more with my followers on my fan page. #socialcafe #TBW
  98. Checking my FB stats - out of 200 followers only 30-50 see my posts in newsfeeds - need to figure out how to increase that! #socialcafe #TBW
  99. A4 I always strive for more consistency; managing expectations. #SocialCafe #TBW
  100. @Joannenyc5 No time like the present! If you have time after this chat take that first step :) #SocialCafe #TBW
  101. @MommaOTheHouseo I've been experimenting. Try just status updates/straight text or links with no preview. #socialcafe #TBW
  102. @KrystalS All about balance, work time into your day for it & then the more receptive they become the easier it will be #SocialCafe #TBW
  103. Call to action is important @PinkMama68 @KrystalS, keep things dynamic, use videos/images and text. #SocialCafe #TBW
  104. @socialwebcafe Using "Likes" in certain ways can get you kicked off for example. They're very specific #SocialCafe #TBW
  105. @KrystalS That is exactly what @MadalynSklar recommends. I tried it and did confirm more views. What abt engagement? #SocialCafe #TBW
  106. @TheBlogWorkshop I wont have time tonight but I will try to fill it this week before my vacation friday #Socialcafe
  107. Many missed it but FB took fanpage updates out of the sidebar feed a few weeks ago, keep in mind when your fans are on #SocialCafe #TBW
  108. @ToddInKC Good that they are specific, so people know where the line is. #SocialCafe #TBW
  109. @Joannenyc5 Awesome! Be sure to let us know when you do so we can show our "Like" #SocialCafe #TBW
  110. MT @TheBlogWorkshop FB took fanpage updates out of the sidebar feed a few weeks ago, keep in mind when your fans are on #SocialCafe #TBW
  111. @socialwebcafe Give me a week or two and I'll let you know the "perfect" FB newsfeed plan haha #tbw #socialcafe
  112. All fans interact differently, so some of it is trail and error... what works for someone else may not work for you. #SocialCafe #TBW
  113. Next week we are talking about getting that vacation and still keeping up on blogging  http://sw.bcafe.co/5P CaSocialCafeTBW
