    I have made a site for my wife's craft stuff on facebook......but as you know you have to establish a site under your own area..although its separate.
    Question.I want the site i created to be seen by the public but...will that compromise my wiife's facebook security which is on seen 'only by friends'. I am concerned that others will see all she posts on her time lime and be able to hack into her and her friends area.....face book is not the worlds best security area.
    Can anyone tell me if this can happen please?
    Is there batter way of doing it on facebook
    Can she lock down her personal site that only friends can see what she post.
    I would be grateful for your thoughts

    If I need to know anything about social media, I ask my (20 something) children.... They've grown up with it...

    No. A 'Page' is a totally separate thing. No one will see who owns the page, and your wife can choose whether to post as herself or as the page. She certainly can lock down her own site but if she only posts in the page's name then there's nothing to link back. It will show her that she posted it, as she will be an admin, but no one else will see her name.

    Not sure what you mean. People can create a FB page for a business/hobby/crusade/holy war (with its own unique login details, privacy settings etc) whilst having a personal FB page for socialising/friends/family (with different login, security, privacy). It's possible that the two entities never have to meet.

    definitely. going through this with setting up the school FB page and staff privacy. there's no crossover unless you choose to post as yourself.

    I have one log in but can post under my usual name or the name I used to set up my "professional" profile. My personal profile is still private, I can choose between the two and post as either. Hope that helps.

    Thank you folks.i knew some one out there might know the answer
    That fine then she can go public with her craft site and stay just with friends for her own personal page.
    Also means i can do the same with my craft site.xxx

    My friend has set up a knitting and crochet selling site and posts under the name she gives to her creations, which is separate from her personal one.

    I have a personal page and a separate business page. They're not connected.

    thanks folks.
    As a question how do you attract folk to your site
    Do you advertise or just launch it on the web and hope it is found?
