Getting Jobs in Entertainment question 961: Do I need a Facebook "Buisness" page?

This is a personal question. I talk about it in my free call "How to Use Social Media to Get Jobs in Entertainment" which you can listen to at GreenlightHollywood.com.

There are bells and whistles you can use on a "business" page, that you can't use on your personal page, the question is do you have time to maintain two pages? I have a "business" page where I post these blogs daily and where entertainment industry professionals can share their links, reels, webseries, videos, announcements, and make requests of and connect with other industry professionals. I generally don't allow them to do that on my personal page UNLESS they are my client.

I feel people get to know me personally on my personal page, and some of that is lost on a "business" page. This is more of a "throw some spaghetti against the wall and see what sticks." If it works for you and you have time for both, then there's no reason not to do it. When you hit 5000 friends, you'll have no choice, but to move people over.
