For a while now I've had a Facebook business page, where I post writing-related news, tips and information.
However, I made one cardinal mistake when I set it up - I gave it the same name as my personal profile. This was causing growing confusion - both for me and people who wanted to follow my updates - so I decided that this year I should grasp the nettle and set up a new page with a distinctive name.
My new page is titled Nick Daws - Freelance Writer and you can find it at http://www.facebook.com/NickDawsFreelanceWriter. I do hope you will click over and "like" it, so you can start seeing my writing-related updates in your Facebook newsfeed.
Unfortunately it wasn't possible to rename the old page (Facebook won't let you do this once you have more than 200 followers), and neither is it possible to transfer people over to the new page automatically. If you want to keep in touch through Facebook, therefore, you will need to "like" my new freelance writing page to do so.
I apologise for any inconvenience, but in the long term I'm sure that this will be the best thing all round. I've also made a few small changes in the type of update I post on the page, with a view to making it more interactive than the old one. Please do feel free to comment on or "like" any of my updates, therefore, and add contributions of your own if you wish as well.
And finally, if you're thinking of setting up a Facebook business page (also known as a fan page) yourself, learn by my mistake and give it a different name from your profile page!
