or blog, or whatever else is not part of the facebook infrastructure?
I've been updating my blog lately. My blog has a long term plan. I work so much doing other stuff that my blog also gets ignored, 3-4 months at a time. So I made some updates and promised myself 3 updates s week. With that, I told a buddy of mine to check out one of my posts because it's right up his alley, and was along thoughtful article on an interesting topic.
He told me "edacsac, you need to write on facebook. We're all on facebook, not on edacsacsite.com". And that was that... With facebook, it seems that it's too arduous to click on a link anymore.

I don't think it. You can show every update you do in your site in your wall in facebook with the rss import tool; so, if you made 5.000 friends, every time you post something in your blog, your 5.000 friends will see a notice in their wall. It's free and easy promotion as sometime a #1 spot in Google was.

You can have the best of both.
With your blog YOU own the content. With Facebook - good luck. No one really knows where Facebook will be 10 years from now, but in the event they begin charging brands to have a presence there may be a mass exodus (who knows)?! Either way, I would suggest that you continue to publish your content on your website and use an app like RSSgrafitti to automatically publish your posts to your Facebook page after it's been indexed. Or manually publish it to Facebook after the SEs index it on your site. That way you still own your hard work and your fans can still see your content as well.

Following on from ken_b I dont see many Facebook pages ranking on Google!
I think you have to strike a happy mix of the two; update the blog three times a week and then engage with your followers on Facebook, let them know that the blog is updated, give them news about what is going on at the blog, the new services, tools etc.. and this should entice them over!
