We find each other somehow, then we may meet on FB Nov 7, 2011

That's not a problem. The real problem is that on youtube I never found a client. This is surprising.

I agree with Angus here, that Facebook is not an appropriate forum for B2B relationships. I use LinkedIn, and I have found some new clients there. Sometimes, they find you, like a software company that wrote to me to express their interest in my services after they had read my postings in the different discussion groups I belong to.

I also agree with many of my colleagues here: I like to keep my private life separate from my professional life. It's only common sense. I have entertained, however, the thought of creating a FB page for my conference photos, videos, etc., but I don't have the time.

I just want to point out that while Facebook proper is not B2B or B2 anything, Facebook Pages is a very appropriate platform for B2C. So the question itself is not entirely inappropriate; in fact it is quite appropriate.

I agree with Ambrose and Mario. While I don't think it is appropriate to mix your private FB page with business, tons of businesses have FB Pages which are extremely professional, give them exposure and are used to create contacts and keep current customers and clients abreast of news, promotions, etc. I also know of several excellent professional blogs (La Marmite comes to mind) that use FB as a medium. Remember, FB is a tool and, like any tool, it can be dangerous when not used correctly, but extremely effective when used properly.
