Use a Fan Page to promote yourself on Facebook!

As a public service announcement to fellow artist friends who may be using their Facebook profile to promote their artwork, please be informed that it's against Facebook's TOS:

All personal site features, such as friending and messaging, are also for personal use only and may not be used for professional promotion. If you add a user as a friend, for example, this person will be invited to be a friend of your profile and not your Page. Using personal site features for professional promotion, or creating unauthorized Pages, may result in your account being warned or disabled.

I'd like to link you to this article about Facebook Fan Pages that explains how to go about making one (and thus be acceptable to Facebook to promote yourself).  I wish I knew about this several months ago.

I'm off to adjust my Facebook page and create my "Fan Page" (wish they called it something else, sounds a bit pompous).

Hope that helps someone!
