Many companies in the Asheville area are hip to the new forms of media exposure. We are living in a day when if you are not on Facebook, you are pretty much non-existent. Not to say that you cannot have a business without Facebook; but I will assure you that you're losing your voice to a very large online community if you do not take advantage of this social network.

Remember, there is a difference between a Facebook page and a personal page. If your business is using a personal page (where you add friends for your business) you are in violation of FB terms and could lose your page at any time. To establish a page for your business, you must first have a personal account. Once that is created, go to www.facebook.com/pages and click "Create a Page". You will then have the choice to create a community page or an official page. Most businesses go with the official page. Community pages are more for following topics as a group.
