We are living in as crazy world when because of your profession how you handle your customers determines what happens with your social media on a personal level. But if you are a professional should you have a personal Facebook page and if you do would you ‘friend’ a client?
Well a wife used her personal Facebook messenger to ask Sam Sylk, radio host of The Sam Sylk Show on 93.1 WZAK, during his daily 1 pm Reality Hour segment if her husband should have clients/customers as Facebook friends and where should the Facebook friend zone line be drawn.
Check out how Sam Sylk responded to her message and her lesson on Social Media etiquette 1:1 from the sylky one below.
4 years ago, my husband decided to create himself a Facebook page. He reconnected with many people, including young women he used to counsel when they were in their mid to late teens. They are now all grown up with kids of their own. I told him to be careful, that alot of those women may see him as a target due to his kindness and try to get money out if him. And they did!!! One in particular asked him for $50 the day they reconnected on fb. He told her he didn’t have it as he had his own family to take care of. Well, ol girl got pissed, called him every name in the book, and blocked him! I reiterated my point about vultures that day. She was never an issue again. Or so I thought. Fast forward to today. He had since closed his fb account down but recently created a new one. Yesterday, he handed me some receipts, (to file for our business) and in the jumble of receipts was a western union receipt that showed he sent money yesterday to the same girl that asked him for it 4 years ago and then cussed him out when he said no. And to add to that, she is a stripper!! He had added her back on fb yesterday and she got him to send her money out of OUR joint account. I know he handed me that receipt in error, because he had all day to tell me IF he wanted me to know. Which he didn’t. My problem is I can’t see myself continuing to support someone who has shown to be gullible, naive, and downright dumb. We have 7 kids between the 2 of us. Ain’t no one got extra money to be giving away to strippers, especially when done behind my back. We have been married almost 5 years, but have been the best of friends for over 12. He didn’t even have a good reason as to why he sent her the money!!!! I don’t even know how to approach this one. Help!
