Guildford, England, United Kingdom
I have just recently started a facebook fanpage as I like to keep my personal profile strictly people I know and then photographers and others can contact me through there.
Anyone with fanpages, what is your opinion?? Is it worth it?
Also put all your links to it here!

I have kept my personal page private too; but feel bad turning people who are not friends as such away. I always avoided having a fan page on facebook though I have one on flickr as it is more directly photography related.
I have sold a number of images from it (I have limited rights to some and sold for photographers too) so its been quite good.
Then in my role for the BHA I have just put up a facebook fan page:
Feel free to add me if anyone wants. xx

If anybody who is trying to do professional stuff on their personal profile has an aversion to setting up a facebook fanpage, there have been recent stories of Facebook completely closing their accounts. It doesn't even seem to matter if you are not even being obvious about making money setting up gigs and promoting commercial events. If Facebook thinks you're doing anything commercial / professional with your personal account, they might shut it down for an unspecified amount of time until they investigate.
This is a good reason to set up the fanpage. The problem is that you now have to get people to join it.

I don't think it is worth it. I don't get found randomly like I do on Flickr... or here. The fan page contains nothing that my own website doesn't, so it really serves no additional purpose to me.
But here it is, anyway-

To the OP Natasha, I believe that FB fan pages are great if you utilize them right. Mine has been pretty successful for me, and the more I learn about how to use it, the better it is.
Here's mine. Fairly new and working on getting my "fan" numbers much, much higher!

I have a personal facebook as well as a "personal modeling" facebook. I had a fanpage but didn't like how it was open to just anyone, so I took it down. However, here's my modeling facebook: http://www.facebook.com/KittyLaRose

I think its a good idea to keep the weirdos and creepers away from your personal page. A fan page doesn't mean you're being egotistical. You're just keeping personal life and business separate. :-)
Heres mine, by the way:

I got one to keep my convention stuff and real life separate... and my personal profile still blew up anyway. Hahah. I just feel so mean when I turn down friend requests.

I will return any likes on this page.
I just started it, although it doesn't seem to be doing much for me right now I'm hoping soon it will.
Edit: There are some great fanpages out there.
