How often do you post to your facebook page?

I only do it once or twice a week and only if I have something at least a little bit interesting.

Also, if you "liked" a page and they ended up posting ads several times throughout the day would you be likely to un-like that page?

Just wondering...

Yes, and yes - or at least ignore their posts in my stream.

Little over 800 fans. Posts get up to 1,500 views - trying for 1% or more feedback. Make it interesting for your audience, ask a question every now and then.

I post at least once a day, preferably twice, (prime time europe, prime time usa), having a discussion forum is great i can link to original content that you dont get anywhere else (most stuff on Facebook i see is just selfpromo or recylced news). I post old articles (2003/2004) to give them some social noise for google, works not bad, almost always see some ranking increase... 1.200 fans here

On the business side I force myself to post a once or twice a week just to keep my page active in case I decide to do something more with it.

On the family/friends account, I hardly ever log in.

Now if I was still single and in my 20s it would be a great way to connect with people briefly met at a party or bar that I found interesting to get to know them better. It is a great self-help dating service. No sweating it out before making that first date phone call. All you need to do is casually friend them on facebook and get a better feel on one's chances before taking the next step.

Daily as long as it is relevant and brings value to the recipient. Not posting for posting sake though.

Once a week.

I feel more than that is intrusive & more like SPAM

I update my facebook page as and when I have new content. The page enjoys around 2000 odd fans. Apart from publishing content from my site, I do ask an engaging question once a week to keep the interactivity going

Never. No facebook page. I considered joining earlier this year strictly so I could join a facebook page setup by for the purposes of reuniting with folks from high school that one of my classmates had set up. My best friend from that era (still my best friend, we've stayed that way for many decades) suggested it to me.

I never bothered though. I'm strictly uninterested in living my life online, publicly. My personal life is quite happily offline.

...i think we talk business pages here not private ones, right?

Hey, they mentioned facebook, not me. For many businesses, facebook is a dud. I can't even be bothered to waste my time trying it.

If I want people to follow me around for my business, I send them newsletters or post on my blog. I don't need facebook for people to follow my business activities.

Hey, 0 is a datapoint too. Just like no choice is a choice.
