When I finally signed up , I was shocked at the number of business contacts that I had that were already on Facebook. I quickly learned that I had to learn how to keep professional and personal sides of my Facebook account separate. Here are a few tips that have helped me keep my two worlds apart:
- Create Friend Lists: According to Facebook, the average user has 150 friends. If you have more than that, it can be a challenge to organize them all. With Facebook Lists, one can organize friends based on interests, affiliation or whatever makes sense. Separate your friends based on how you met them, etc. For example in my profile I have quite a few lists going: “networking” for people I met through business networking events, “clients” for clients, “high school”, “college”, etc. Just click on the “Friends” tab to edit and create lists.
