Facebook can be used both personally and also for business purposes but in my case, I usually use facebook only for business purposes because I don't usually upload a picture about my personal life mainly because I am a private individual. Facebook is a good platform if you want to spread your product awareness.

True I have seen several brands and personalities upgrade just by relying on facebook to market themselves and keep their customers or fans up to date with whatever they have going on.

It is common for many influencers and socially active people like celebrities to turn to facebook when they need to promote their products and services which I think is maybe the category you fall under. IT explains the versatility in facebook usage.

I use it mainly for personal purposes. I also use it for business sometimes but that is just when somebody contacted me through our page. I usually transact over the phone or with personal meetings as I feel it is safer that way.

I have not been actively using my personal account on facebook for years aside form the messenger. I use facebook now mainly for advertising. It is a good platform to get yourself out there and it has a good reach. Your work or product can trend if you are lucky.

Yeeeah the majority of the uses when they fall under the personal category they get to be mainly in informing and entertaining. Facebook and other numerous social media are always at the forefront in enabling such interactions.

I’ve been using Facebook now for business purposes. Before it was for personal use but then I realized that it’s better if I will use it for business purposes. Now, my Facebook account is solely for my business. It helps me promote my business worldwide. It helps me reach more people and increase my sales. Facebook has been my partner in business nowadays.

I am currently using the facebook for promoting the blog and my videos. And so far that seems to be working out. Not sure how much but it seems like things are a bit different here. I think for business it works lot better there as well.

Though Facebook can be used on both ways, I am using it for my personal use. I didn't have a business yet to promote so as of the moment i will use it for personal purposes until such time.

I have been constantly using Facebook for years and I find it very useful to keep in touch with my college and high school friends. I often use this site for personal purposes but recently I used it to buy Herschel bags. I had a transaction with a seller and it was very convenient to use as a medium to contact the seller. The transaction is made fast by Facebook and within the day I got my item. I use this site for personal and business purposes.

I haven't started a business yet so I use Facebook mostly for personal use. I am getting bored of Facebook to be honest and planning to leave the site soon. There is no interesting content on the site and all I see are promotional ads across my news feed.

I'm planning to start a business on Facebook in the future. But as it stands, I'm just in the process of growing an audience. Most of my traffic on Facebook is for personal use.

Well that's a good plan to start the process of growing an audience as part of your plan to start a business. I use also Facebook for personal use but as I can see now, Facebook is very influential nowadays and I can see that it is really a good social media to influence a potential customers for business. I can see a lot of posts to introduce their business and influence people to visit their stores or outlets. Specially business that they are offering food, they are really attractive to taste and try their menus. Even I and my family, encourage to visit their stores when we see that their products or food are worthy and tasty.

Just personal. I do have a freelance gig that involves managing the social media for an organization, but in my own personal life my Facebook is simply for me.

I use Facebook account for both business and personal purposes. I often use my Facebook account to catch up with friends and family. When it comes to business, I use my business page which I created to handle the business. I also use my account to discuss with prospective work as I am still building my brand. When the conversations need to be more personal, we move on to discuss in person or by some other means.

I use it for personal use. I use it to communicate with friends and to be able to share what I like to see. I also enjoy communicating and interacting with other people using the app.

I only use Facebook for personal use. I only use it these days to keep in contact with family and close friends. I did use it once to sell clothes but that's just about it. But even before all that I only used Facebook because of the games they had, like Farmville and that Cafe game. I miss those.

Basically, I am using facebook for personal uses. But sometimes, I also use it for my online shop business as I needed to have a wider range of contact with my customers. Also, facebook is really intended for personal uses and tp help other people to connect with each other.

I'm using Facebook primarily for personal communication but it offers much more than that. We can also use it to perform a refined search for places and organizations. Businesses all over the world are using Facebook pages to reach existing and potential clients. Small businesses can take advantage of setting up a Facebook page instead of creating their own website. Some friends and friends of friends are using their sphere of influence on Facebook to promote their products and blogs. I may try this route one of these days to promote my own blog.

Facebook is a great platforms for business and any other things but as of now I am using my Facebook account for personal and social purposes. Facebook has been the most used social media platforms for business. It has been very effective and easy to use and further than that, it has the largest population among all the social media sites.

I mainly use it as a way to keep in touch with friends and family and some entertainment, but recently I've started to use it to try to sell some things. I haven't had any luck yet, though, and I'm still a bit skeptical about it being safe for making a casual sale, you never know if you can trust the other party.

My account was set up as a personal account. But then I realized that I could still create business pages and groups to support my affiliate marketing and blogging efforts. So I use Facebook mainly for home business purposes.

I have a Facebook account that I technically use for personal purposes, but the truth is that I don’t even use it all that much to begin with. While I have an account open, I don’t have any pictures uploaded, nor do I update my status or have any friends. The only reason my Facebook profile exists is if for whatever reason I can’t contact my friends/family through their phones, they can reach me through messaging me on Facebook’s Messenger application. Besides that, I couldn’t care less for Facebook anymore.

For personal use. I use facebook to connect with friends and to communicate with them. The photos i upload are mostly photos of my children because im proud of them. I rarely upload photosnof myslef most of them are tagged photos. But if you are going to use it for business it ia really good because it has a lot of users. You can spread the word very easily.
