Sorry if I sound extremely naive or lost :)

Opened a FB account a while ago and been posting updates of fresh posts. The official page has to do with outdoors. The purpose of my experiment was to keep FB readers up to date.

    -I receive likes
    -I receive comments
    -Some questions of the site get posted on FB wall automatically (my -script) and some users post answers there

I'm having lots of friends requests, from that 100%, 40% turn into unsolicited invitations, people I see as permanent connected to FB and wasting time. So far I'm seeing that my experiment on FB got me more work: accepting friend requests and then blocking unwanted invitations.

Is it just me? I feel that time could be better used on writing content :S

i post events to my facebook page automatically, a few times a day, with an RSS feed. that takes most of the work out of it. i just check in every now and then just to see what's happening and read the comments. i do the same with twitter.

the only traffic i want from facebook is the kind that comes straight back to my website, after clicking a link on one of the events. i dont want the ones that just read it and stay on facebook. although i suppose its useful if they share the links with their friends and help to spread the word.

any traffic is good though. even if you have to put a little work into it
