  • Precautions while using Facebook

    Keep Your Grudges Private

    When maintaining a professional looking Facebook page for your business, it is imperative that you avoid criticizing your competition, former clients or personal adversaries. Discussing topics like this on your Facebook page will make you appear immature and unprofessional. Furthermore, speaking ill of former clients is sure to make prospective clients think twice before doing business with you. The last thing any business wants is to be viewed as cold and unwelcoming. Facebook is a tool youre supposed to use for drawing in new business, not driving it away.
