As in life, Facebook is nothing without garnering the right network of friends; this can be all-the-more tricky when you’re setting up a profile for a corporation and not a person. This is where a more personal tone comes in handy. Start by finding your real-world friends, and/or employees. Don’t expect everyone to accept a friend request – some employees will undoubtedly wish to keep their Facebook self private from their corporate self, and that’s perfectly understandable.

Or would you prefer your visibility be limited to people in your network, or just to your friends of friends?

It’s time well spent to go through them all and make sure each setting is where you want it to be.
