Facebook is a powerful tool. With millions upon millions of reachable users it is the social media powerhouse. Sharing content is incredibly easy and businesses can so easily engage potential customers that many businesses are putting it to work for them.
There are, in fact, many ways to make Facebook work for you, but there is one sure fire way to make certain you lose game. That would be using your business’s Facebook page as a platform for your personal views.
Sharing your personal religious or political views can be detrimental to your customer base who probably doesn’t mirror all of your positions. It is easy enough to alienate people on your personal profile, but doing so on your company’s page is not only ill-advised, it is just plain crazy. Keep your company page about just that, your company or the industry as a whole. Before posting, ask yourself if this is relevant and if any part of it might offend a customer with opposing viewpoints, because even if you don’t agree with them, you don’t want to lose their business, do you?
