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.

Results:
    -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
    -LOTS OF FRIEND REQUESTS


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
