    But you are also targetting a younger crowd.

    Andy...thanks!

    AJ...FB isn't as young of a crowd as you think. Most, if not all of the people I have as friends, are my friends from college or from high school...I'm 35 years young! I also have some of my 40+ year old clients on there. FB is a good marketing tool...for free. It's a place to send people to view pictures. I have a few clients in their late 60s that spend time on FB.

    35 is young! You start getting old at 40ish

    It doesnt matter how old they are. The main thing is that your friends(word of mouth references) know what you do and are always aware of it.

    I would totally disagree. The younger generations have been on Facebook for a while now. The older generations are the newest additions and if your smart with it, you can really benefit your business.

    You can pretend it isn't where your market is because your not comfortable with the platform or the idea of facebook OR you can get on board with hundreds of your customer.

    Its a cheap place to advertise, showcase your business, and get referrals.
