Although people are more or less aware of what appropriate Netiquette in social media management, the creation and development of Facebook has taken web interaction to a whole new level.

When it comes to Facebook marketing, there are a number of things you have to take into account when responding to people.You should evaluate the applications that you use. However you use Facebook, whether for personal or business purposes, realize that your actions online, while not all, can have a big consequence within your world. For some, Facebook and other social networks is even the basis of making or breaking relationships from employees ranting about their bosses online to wives finding out about her husband’s affair.

Here are just a handful of things you should consider when you’re dealing with your Fans and Friends on Facebook.

– Keep what needs to be Private, Private

Redundant as it may sound, this is the key rule many people put aside. You can post ‘What’s on your mind’ on Facebook wall and virtually anything you want to say. Having said that, remember that posting these things may turn out to be a big mistake on your part. Do you really want your clients see you puking on your Friday night gimmicks? Or is that nasty remark that’s supposed to be an inside joke among your buds worth the false impression by your business contacts? Realize that whatever that’s learned about you online can have a long-term impact. Personal or professional contacts may stumble on these in the future. If your life is like an open book, imagine the end result of you having to explain to them each and every action you made in the past.

When Using Facebook for Business, Stop Publishing those Game Updates

Those game updates will make you look incompetent towards potential customers. If you still play these games however, it would be best if you not have the updates posted on your wall. To you, it may seem like guilty pleasure. But to others, posting game updates will give you the reputation of being a bit too juvenile. That’s a big no-no when you’re trying to build up solid integrity online.

Avoid Posting Updates As If You’re Texting Them

?Hd a frikng gud tym at d prty lst nyt? just doesn’t sound well online. You’re not posting updates on Twitter which is limited to only 150 words so why scrimp your words? Text posting is a bit too casual for any person’s taste. The same goes for drunk posting, posting gibberish or something too vague. In fact, stop posting just for the sake of posting. Although all Facebook users have the liberty to say anything they like, this thing can also be very infuriating to many people over the long run. Irritation is not the sentiment you want to conjure up in people.

– Choose Contacts Wisely

Be aware that different updates will turn up on their news feed. Even their Facebook friends will have the chance to view those posts. With this, you’d want to only include people who might be interested to your offer. Primary contacts are ideal. You only have a 5,000 limit for contacts after all. If you’re managing a Facebook page for business reasons, you shouldn’t be too quick in accepting friend requests. It would do you good to do a bit of investigation about the contact. It is unethical to befriend everyone and then de-friend them later on.
