This has to be one of the “weirdest” things I’ve done. I just created a Facebook Page for myself (really directed more towards this blog, though).
Why did I do it?
1. I had a surprising number of people come up to me and ask me about it at conference. “Do you have a Facebook Fan Page?” That was a little shocking to me.
2. I’ve read several books and other blog posts that indicated that it is a good thing to do.
3. Recognizing that I’m not always the most “in touch” with current trends, the awkwardness of creating one was outweighed by the realization that Gen Y is social media dependent. Apparently one nearly doesn’t exist if there is no Facebook Page to prove it.
4. Since Thirty-One is going to allow Consultants to have Facebook Pages now, and I’m the defacto Social Media Strategist for Holley, it gives me the opportunity to see how it works so I can help her. (What crazy things we’ll do as a H.O.T.!)
