Each post in this series will give you an overview of using these sites followed by marketing ideas.

Facebook used to be limited to college students, but since they’ve opened it up to everyone, it’s being flooded. Professionals are using it to network in addition to people just connecting informally. Exchanging messages there is easier than email because they’re displayed in a logical way.

Registration is easy & you can provide as much or as little info as you want.

There are two main pages that I use:

Profile Page

wall – where people can leave you public messages that everyone sees
friends list – click on a friend to send them a private message
groups list – shows which groups that you belong to
You’ll see that on my profile I also feed in our blog.
