I have a personal profile on FB and a Business Page, and while I have lots of business connections want to “friend” me on my personal profile, I encourage people to use my fan page for that. I’m not going to worry overmuch about it, though, until I reach the 5,000 friends limitation. My updates for the personal are more, well, personal–but I don’t lock it down (except for really personal info), because I want to be accessible.
In answering @albuquerquesbdc question, yes, Kristin, it is against FB policy to have a business page as a personal profile, so you run the risk that if they catch you, they might shut you down. You really should read the FB rules on that and stay within them. It would be a pain to lose all your friend connections and have to start over. Here’s a Facebook link that explains the difference.
I sympathize with the effort it takes to keep up with changes–especially when it seems FB changes every Tuesday!
If the SBDC doesn’t have a LinkedIn profile, it should. You can now set up LinkedIn Company Pages, and I would definitely have a personal LI profile as well. You’ll find the business community (especially C-Level and business owners) will use it even more than FB in many cases, especially with the fear of FB privacy issues.
Hope that helps.
