I've set up a Facebook
page for David F. Fanning Numismatic Literature. I've been using Facebook for a bit, and as it grows in popularity, I've been contacted by a few customers and fellow bibliophiles who wanted to link to my personal page. As I use the personal page to stay in touch with old college friends, post photos of my son, and other non-business matters, I thought it best to create a separate page for my business.
Facebook being what it is, it will largely be up to readers to determine exactly what form this page takes. I intend to use the page as a sort of supplementary Web site (in addition to my real one at www.fanningbooks.com), and use it for things like photo albums and other fun, less immediately commercial postings. I don't believe I can post catalogues and such on it, so if you feel the need to buy something from me, you'll have to go to the fanningbooks.com site, which remains the primary Web site for the business. I'll be curious to see what people think. To find the page, just go to facebook.com and search for David F. Fanning Numismatic Literature.
I've been on Facebook for a while now, and it is indeed growing in popularity well beyond its original college-age demographic. Lately I've been seeing more and more people showing up there. I don't keep my page constantly updated, but many people do, and it's a great way to stay connected with friends. -Editor
