Why I Setup a Facebook Page for Myself
Because I’m kind of a big deal.
Today I launched a Facebook Page for myself. You can check it out and follow me by liking the page here. No, I didn’t really set it up because I think I’m a big deal (even though I kinda am). I set it up because as my reach and influence online has grown, I’ve realized that the people who follow me are divided up into several different audiences.
The people who follow me on Twitter are mostly pastors and business people who are interested in learning about church communications or what we’re doing at Mars Hill.
And my friends on Facebook are mainly real life friends and family who are more interested in how I’m feeling, and seeing photos of my kids. They don’t really engage with my posts when I post about business stuff, even if it’s things I’ve written.
Yet, as more people are following me on Twitter they are also requesting to be my friend on Facebook because they see that I’m posting stuff there too. But I don’t really want people I don’t know to see photos of my kids.
And if I know you personally, you can friend me on Facebook and I promise I won’t bombard your feed with a bunch of links and posts that you don’t really care about.
If I don’t know you personally, then the Facebook Page and/or Twitter is the way to go. I’lll be weeding through my Facebook friends soon and cutting loose the folks that I don’t know too well. If I unfriend you, please don’t take it personally. I hope that you’ll like my Facebook Page and keep following and engaging with my content. And hopefully you’ll appreciate less photos of my kids (and tacos) in your Facebook feed.
