    Facebook - Too personal for work?

    So, I have decided to start adding my affiliates on Facebook. I hardly ever use my Facebook and for the most part all of my friends on there are from high school or the people I've met here at college, but I have been contemplating whether I should start to use it to network with my affiliates and other business professionals.

    I noticed that shoemoney and John Chow have been been promoting their Facebooks a little more, but for the most part their contacts are within the industry. Most of mine are college students who could care less about any industry besides the beer industry

    I went ahead and added about 47 of my affiliates. If you get a notification and don't confirm I will call it out RIGHT HERE and call you by name

    If its only about Facebook. I add only the people whom i know personally. But then, do i use it much?

    If we talk about other social networking sites, like myspace, tagged etc. I add neone and everyone there, afterall they always helped me get some traffic

    I've had about 50 of my affiliates confirm my friend requests. My wall is already getting some affiliate action

    BTW, Will Spencer confirmed my friend request which is amazing because Will Spencer is God.

    To be honest I don't use facebook. I do have an account there but I rarely open it. I don't know why but I don't like such kinda sites.

    Maybe I'll have to re-use my account to help promote my upcoming projects

    Start to re-use your account... I am really a facebook mania now... so many good games to play... wow....

    hint: if you play some favourite games there, be active at thier forums, and you might get gems he he he... I manage to get a lil bit over 150 friends just from a game... and start posting "note", update status, etc etc which attract them to your website... sweet...

    Don't even mention Shoemoney, because he took me off as a friend and told me it wasn't personal, just too many group invites coming from me.

    Anyways, I think that when you get serious, you may want to take certain people off who distract you. You may want to move into a certain direction that benefits you. Yes, for some time I got distracted talking to girls, but now I am mainly adding political, real estate and seo friends and that's it.
