You guys are pretty intelligent. I want your opinion on something that has been bothering me for a few months now.
Do you prefer to ‘request’ the friendship of a facebooker or are you happy to just ‘like’ them?
I have two Facebook pages. The first is my personal page. I’ve had it for years and even though I don’t visit very often, have ignored my farm, and neglected my animals to the point they have up sticks and moved to Cafe World, it is the place I know I can catch up with old school mates, family members, and close friends whenever I like.
Then I have another page which is my ‘Donna Newton Author Page’. I do frequent this page a lot. I post blog updates, talk about what I’m up to, and discuss topics with other writers.
My dilemma is this. My personal page gets quite a few friend requests from people I don’t know and as this page is, well, personal, I decline them. My status updates on this page are private after all, as are my friends.
My Author page on the other hand is free for everyone to like. You don’t even have to ‘like’ me. You can view the page, scan uploaded photos, and read the statuses. You can comment, join in and then, if you really feel the urge to – you can ‘like’ me. It’s simple. I meet new people, have a laugh and in some cases, even added some ‘like’ peeps to my personal page.
So, what is my dilemma?
Should my Author Page be a ‘like’ page or a ‘request’ page? I know that I prefer to ‘request’ friendship rather than just ‘like’ someone.
So what are your preferences? What do you prefer to do? ‘Like’ or ‘Request’? You’re comments will decide what I will be doing this weekend so please don’t be shy in airing your opinions :D
Psst – I am going to run this poll on my FB page, too.
