Facebook is an excellent platform for the Actor to use to promote their business. But some people get confused between using their Profiles and their Pages. And now, with Facebook unveiling their new TIMELINE platform, people are all over the place in terms of understanding how to utilize this valuable resource to teir jump their business.
Profiles (timelines) represent individuals and must be held under an individual name, while Pages allow an organization, business, celebrity, or band to maintain a professional presence on Facebook. You may only create Facebook Pages to represent real organizations of which you are an authorized representative.In addition, Pages are managed by admins who have personal Facebook profiles (timelines). Pages are not separate Facebook accounts and do not have separate login information from your profile (timeline). They are merely different entities on our site, similar to how Groups and Events function. Once you have set up a Page within your profile (timeline), you may add other admins to help you manage this Page. People who choose to connect to your Page won’t be able to see that you are the Page admin or have any access to your personal account.
We’ve teamed up with another company, Social Networking Academy to bring you a series of videos and emails geared for Social Networking for Actors. And because this is such a relevent topic and people want more info NOW, we’ve created a Facebook Page using some of these techniques and provide a forum for you to ask your Social Networking questions.

So we encourage engagement, not just sitting back and reading. Like, comment, share…and pretty soon you will be Social Networking all over the place!!
