OK - I know everyone here has drunk the WordPress koolaid (me  too).  If it were my choice, I'd pick WordPress - especially since I've spent the past couple weeks really trying to get up to speed on it.


The group that I'm active with has already picked drupal, and since I'm committed to helping them with the project - I'm using it too. 

Can you set up a "Drupal Tips and Tricks" board for those of us who are using it instead of Wordpress?



My question is "Do I become FaceBook friends with TRT100K folks and others who I interact with only on a professional networking basis, and aren't my friends (meaning we don't want to see pictures of each others kids?  How do I keep my personal and business communications separated on social media?"


What started this was an email conversation with someone who said "Are you on twitter?  Facebook?  better ways for me to connect, stay in touch."  They are a very nice person, and perhaps someday we'll become close personal friends and swap all sorts of personal stories and pictures.  But today, they are really an aquaintance. 

Email works fine for me for this - it's easy for me to control what I email, as well as easy for me to search all emails from them to track our relationship and conversations.  But if they'd prefer to use something else to communicate, I'd like to accomodate them.  With social media, I don't really know what the best way to do that is.  I know Jack has mentioned (no idea which podcast) on more than one occasion that he made a mistake originally allowing Facebook friend status to casual business acquaintances.

What I'd normally do is just create a new Facebook account specifically for my professional interest (in this case blog / business), but while it may or may not be enforced, Facebook terms include:
1.You will not provide any false personal information on Facebook, or create an account for anyone other than yourself without permission.
2.You will not create more than one personal profile.
3.If we disable your account, you will not create another one without our permission.
4.You will not use your personal profile for your own commercial gain

From my brief research on Facebook, it looks like I could also create a Facebook Page (for a business), Community Page or Group.  I'm not sure if any of those would make it easier for me to interact with folks.  Can I still communicate with them that way?  Any pluses, minuses I should be aware of?

If there are definitive answsers on best practices, please point me to them.  If not, let's use this thread to start hashing out some approaches and maybe we can create the using Facebook for your business 101 tutorial.

Any chance you can support Tapatalk (http://www.tapatalk.com/) on the TRT100k forum?  I'm running it on my SMF site (still under development) and really like being able to access the forums via my mobile phone.



SMF (Simple Machine Forums) / Getting Started with SMF

OK - I've installed SMF and I'm learning how it works - creating categories and doing test posts.

If anyone has any advice for the newbie's, I'd sure appreciate it.  I'm specifically looking for any plug ins that you have found particularly useful, and anything that shoudl be done first - where going back and trying to fix it later would be hard.
