When you post a status update, or a picture, video, in the lower right hand corner of that box right next to the post button is a button that says public or whatever setting you have. Once you click on this button it will give you options.
You can then choose a list to send your post to and only those on that list will get it. No one else will see it. You can also hit the customize button and choose multiple lists to include, exclude. You can also tag individual people.
I don't separate business from my family and friends and I don't separate my life from business. For me it's all intertwined. I am a very public person and I wear my life on my sleeve. But I do separate some posts by my lists.
There are times I don't need my family, friends, and mlm people to see a video that I made specifically for my non mlm clients.
I do this by uploading a video clicking on the link (which may say public) next to the post button, scroll down to my specific list choose it and then hit post. No one else will see it.
Same thing with a list I have with a reunion I am organizing. I make status updates regarding the reunion and I'll post to just that list. No one else needs to see it.
I also have an MLM list that I made from prospects, to leaders I like to follow. At times I will separate my status updates for just that particular list.
Fan pages and groups are great. One benefit of a group is that the status updates that are made in the group will always show up in every group members notification list, regardless if they made a comment.
It happens automatically if you are a member.
This is something I just learned about when I was noticing notifications were showing up from groups that I have belong to. People usually check their notifications to see who has responded to something they may have said. This will increase the number of eyeballs who read your update. Group updates do not show up in the news feed.
A fan page update appears in the news feed but not in the notifications list unless you made a comment on a fan page status and then someone makes another comment after you. It's no different than regular profile.
Hope this helps some.
