Facebook can be a great tool, and an occasional annoyance. What kind of Facebooker are you? There are lots of fun, interesting people you're happy to talk to when they stroll up. Then there are the other people, the ones who make you cringe when you see them coming. This article is about those people.

Facebook, with all the trivial applications, does make business to business communications harder and I have to agree with you that LinkedIn is a much better place to build professional relationships. Out of all the professional Facebook groups I joined, only few have active members and successfully stayed spam-free.

What I love about Facebook are some of the features that it offers like Photo Albums with tagging-enabled (super awesome for networking event photos :-) ), birthday alerts and not to mention the Wall that now allows filtering.

Yup, but different types annoy different groups of people. I find this useful because it gives you a brief idea of Facebook users' characters that most people don't like. For example, if you are using Facebook to find new professional connections, you should avoid sending out irrelevant invitations to trivial applications.

This may just be me, but Facebook does seem a lot less suited to simple business to business communications than, say, LinkedIn precisely because of all the trivial apps and because it seems biased towards letting you connect mostly with acquaintances. While technically LinkedIn's rules about connecting only with people you know would tend to be equally limiting, this is pretty much negated by the LinkedIn groups which include categories from a wide range of business, professional and other interests allowing you to meet people you don't know but share something in common with and then eventually connect. Though Facebook also has groups, a much smaller percentage seem related to professional or business interests. Don't get me wrong. I have definitely had business successes with Facebook. It just seems less friendly than other applications when used for these ends.

Wayne,

Doesn't this cover just about everyone on Facebook?
