Face Book or Crack Book

I'm asked all the time about my schedule, it's always been the number one question asked of me by customers and friends alike. However recently another question has moved into the top slot. "How do you know how to use face book for your business?" and that's followed by "How much time do you spend on face book?"
I didn't know how to use it and I spent way too much time learning about it....meaning exploring late into the night on the computer; reading, posting, deleting, and asking questions. My fascination with it, {my husband would say my obsession with it } comes from the fact that I believe we have not scratched the surface of it's potential for small businesses. I think it's so very exciting that HiHo is able to be part of a conversation anytime and anywhere. Like creating a great visual display in the shop and sharing it with hundreds of people, sharing happenings, meeting new friends and visiting new places. OK, I admit it, I'm obsessed.
I writing this blog post on the eve before the first World Wide Social Media Day, yup a new excuse to gather with others and talk about my latest obsession. SweetPea&Co is hosting a local celebration at the Gunk Haus. New ideas, more people to cross promote with and the exploring continues. Did I answer the question??? hmmm, I'm still learning, I'm self taught and way to much time ;)
