Dear Ms. Social Networking Manners,
I’ve just started an online business and I’ve heard Facebook is the best place to get the word out about my business. So I’ve been sending friend requests to as many people as Facebook will let me, and once they do friend me, I post on their wall a little ad about what I do. I’m trying to get the word out about my business, and I figured this was a pretty harmless way to do it. The people I friend are all using Facebook for their businesses, so they must understand people trying to build biz connections, right? The problem is, some of them seem to be a little unhappy with me — they unfriend me, and worse, they delete my post from their wall! I don’t get it — what am I doing wrong?
