Hello Everyone,

I tried to find the answer for this on WA before asking but had no luck (or perhaps not enough coffee as it is still early this morning).

Although it can be a bit discouraging to start social media accounts for you website because of few followers, you should keep it separate from you personal account. You can link followers from you other account if you want to. People following your personal account will get sick of you business info.

Thanks for your insight on my question James :)

That is why I want to separate my personal and business social media accounts...don't want to flood my family and friends with my business posts as many aren't interested or don't understand.

Just as there is home an business versions of computer versions of Microsoft applications, personal and business social media should not be mixed.

Thank you Mike :) really appreciate the input on this one

WHERE POSSIBLE I OPENED NEW ONES BUT THE LIKES OF FB AND GOOGLE+ I MESSED IT UP AND THEY ARE LINKED TO MY PERSONAL PAGES :-(( NOT PERFECT BUT IT IS WORKABLE XOXOXOX

I WOULD HAVE PREFERRED TO HAVE SEPARATE ONES THOUGH XOXO

Thanks for your response based on your own experience Tania :) appreciate it

YOU ARE WELCOME HUN, HOPE IT HELPS YOU A BIT XOXOXO WHEN YOU GET THEM SORTED, PLEASE LET ME KNOW I WOULD LOVE TO FOLLOW YOU :-))

In G+ you can have a personal profile for everything and - from there, create business pages for whatever you want to keep separate. I see you got answewrs about Facebook which I don't use much.

Generally: You won't connect a website to social media directly, but the correspondent content. Maybe I don't understand well your question, though!

Yes Rick .. keep business and social apart. We use Facebook extensively for wife's business .. she has a Private Profile, a Business Profile and a Fan Page. Cheers, William.

Thanks for joining in on this discussion William. It sounds like I don't need to create a separate FB account for my online business/website then...if I am reading your reply correctly?

Sorry Rick .. I confused you .. The Private Profile and Business Profile are separate Facebook Accounts .. we just post personal stuff on one and the other we post business stuff or lifestyle stuff. The Fan Page is created off the Business Profile. Cheers, William.

Yes, was confused but you cleared it up...thanks again :)

Yes. For Facebook I created a business page, same for GooglePlus. I started the others after joining WA and so they're for business, except Pinterest...I have many different kinds of boards as well as my business one. But I have to move them or hide them...is it possible to hide my other boards on Pinterest so only my business one is seen by others?

Hi Liz.

You created a business page within your personal FB account or did you create a completely separate business page?

I can't help you with the answer to the Pinterest question as I am not to similar with it yet. I have an account with Pinterest that is just for my online business/website.

I used my personal account to create the FB business page.

Thanks for clarifying...that is what I had also done. Not sure though if I should create a FB account for just my online business/website.

Not sure either...might be much. I mean, even more on your plate. I think a business page is good. Then maybe a group or something when you've got a following. Would be easier to manage from one place.

I would create separate ones Rick - it's always best to keep personal lives and business apart :)

Thanks for replying Jude.....I am in agreement with you about business and personal being separate.

Facebook and Pinterest have business account you can create for your website. In FB, you can create a Page link directly to your site. Hope this helps.

Hi Rick, the link to your website is not working. I take it you are refering to Facbook and Twitter etc. Yes, I would use these in promoting your website. Irv.

Hi Irvine...just checked my website link and it is still good when I click on it.

I have checked again and it is OK now. Irv.

Hey Rick Your Website Links Not Working When I try to click on it

Not sure what the hiccup was Anthony but it is working now...thanks for the heads up :)
