Do many writers use a separate Facebook acct instead of their personal acct to promote their writing
I'd like to use Facebook to promote my writing but I don't want to use my personal FB acct. I write under a pen-name & prefer to remain anonymous as a lot of what I write is of a personal nature. How many hubbers have created separate FB accounts just for their writing ventures?
Myself, I just promote my work under my original account. We do sometimes as writers open ourselves up a bit more than we would in casual conversation. But, it is what it is.
I use a fb business page. I don't even have a personal fb acct.
if one considers this to be profession then obviously they would have a separate account for professional and personal friends.
I like to keep FB separate from my Hubpages and Linked in. I'm not sure it's healthy to allow any of these to mix.
Oddly enough, I had pondered this dilemma until fairly recently!
Only yesterday, I set up a Facebook page using my personal account. You can post on this, as you would your timeline and invite people to 'like' your page. You do not become friends with them and they do not have access to view your personal account.

Hope this helps!
You don't need a separate FB account just set up another Business page. I have five pages and I play them off each other, post and share items. This keeps my friends and family informed but protects them. Being a strong believer that you should keep business and personal separate. Just a note that you can also link your Twitter account to Facebook. So when you write on Facebook it will automatically Tweet.
I don't have a twitter acct but I did just set-up a FB page for writing under my pen-name. Now I'm curious as to who can see the Admin of the page. If they can see the Admin, it takes away the anonymity that I need. Hmmm... Thanks.
Hi, sorry it took so long to respond...Your personal page and business page are not linked in anyway unless you link them. A great test would be to completely log out of Facebook then find your business page and see what us ordinary people will see.

I am thinking about creating a brand new facebook profile for business use only, so that I could publish my hubs there and my twitter tweets.Does anyone of you have two separate facebook accounts for professional and for private use? Do you think it is worth the time setting up and maintaining?
