Banned From Facebook!!

I don't understand why this happens every few months, but it does...
 
This morning, I had a bunch of e-mails from subscribers asking the same question:  Can I promote my business on my personal Facebook page.
 
The answer, unequivocally, is NO!
 
As has happened with many others, doing this can get you banned from Facebook.
 
And just because you know people who are getting away with it, that should not a reason for you to consider it, or tell others to do the same. 
 
"Other People Are Getting Away With It" is certainly not a principle I'd base my business actions on... and I'm sure you feel the same way.
 
But if you don't believe me, see what Facebook says about it themselves.  Go to this page, and click on the second bullet point.  It says, and I quote:
"Users aren't permitted to maintain an account under the name of their organization, or use personal accounts to advertise or promote themselves professionally."
You can also go here and here for more stories about how this practice could get you banned from Facebook.
 
Also, I've recut my free Facebook For Business webinar.  It's about a half-hour long and goes into great detail about what you can and can't do on Facebook to promote your business.
 
 
Finally, if you want to learn how to take advantage of Facebook, as well as your other social networking platforms, in a way that's not only within the rules, instead of the gray areas, but also gives you maximum effectiveness, check out the Advanced Blogging and Social Networking Boot Camp.
