With over 1 billion members, Facebook remains the most popular social network. Although businesses create Facebook pages, many professionals feel their personal profiles should remain private and leave the networking to other sites, like LinkedIn.
Facebook recently released a new profile section to try and improve their approach to business networking. According to Social Media for Law Firms blogger Samantha Collier, your Facebook networks are individuals who most likely trust you and would happily recommend your services. The new "professional skills" section allows users to promote their areas of expertise, network with professionals with similar skills and increase referrals from colleagues, friends and family members.
