I am having problems getting my head around facebook pages. I'm a technical guy, and I have read the facebook docs as well as a few blogs on why to use facebook pages - however, I don't quite get it. The bit I don't get is the fact that facebook (as I understand it) seems bent on "imposing" the criteria that you attach a personal account to the corporate page.
I don't quite see the point of this - as it particularly defeats the object of a 'corporate' page - i.e. a separate entity. I have a number of websites which cover diverse (and non overlapping areas). I consider each website a separate and distinct internet property or SBU (strategic business unit) in its own right - and I want to create and manage the brands separately - and most importantly, I dont want to link the companies to my personal FB page, which I use for my less formal interaction with close friends and family.
So, what am I missing here?. Is my understanding of how to create a corporate page on facebook wrong?
All I want to do is to create a corporate page (one for each entity/website) so that:
- clients/website members etc can post to the wall
- I (or someone else designated as admin) can post updates to the site
- Clients/site members can 'like' (or is it be 'friends' of?) the page
- My private messages/communication/profile etc is kept completely separate from the corporate page(s).
Can someone please enlighten me on how to achieve the above - or tell me if it is not possible. I can't help but think, if I as a techie (developer), am finding it so difficult to set things up - they (FB), can't have done a good job....
