(These survey questions are sent in by our readers. Please spend a minute to give your answer to this week's survey as one or possibly more of your industry peers thinks this question is important and wishes to see your point of view as well as others in the industry.)  

Last week's survey results...
Do you use Facebook to promote your business? If so, do you keep the private and business sections separate or are you ok with it altogether?
  • yes - we keep them separate, we have several staff with access to manage our facebook pages
  • Yes and yes. There's no personal posts on my business page but I do share business posts on my private account. 
  • We use Facebook on occasion. We have a private and business page and keep them separate for the most part unless sharing to gain a wider audience. I've heard people say a FB page is more important than having a web site. I don't necessarily agree but think its beneficial to have as much cost effective exposure as possible. 
  • I would like to keep the two separated but do not know how everyone like to use friends instead of like. 
  • I use both as public. I see no reason to keep my personal stuff private. Most of my clients have become friends anyway. (Shane Drew, DSI) 
  • YES, I have both, I do not do marketing campaigns but allow all to update, as it is very interactive, no issues
  • Frankly there appears to be so much to learn about the management of a Facebook page, in terms of privacy and I just don't have the time or inclination to allocate to learning all about it. Consequently I am very nervous about putting too much information up there, Even the business page seems to get mixed up with my personal one, they seem t be linked - not sure what I am doing wrong. I would definitely want to keep the two separate if I could.

We had a late comment by Shane Drew of DSI on the previous week's survey on Windows 10:
Corel has no plans to make Corel compatible with win10 beyond corel x7. Basically, their attitude is, upgrade or suffer the bugs. That said, corel 7 running on win 10 is awesome.

Marriage is sharing

The old man placed an order for one hamburger, French fries and a drink.
He unwrapped the plain hamburger and carefully cut it in half, placing one half in front of his wife.
He then carefully counted out the French fries, dividing them into two piles and neatly placed one pile in front of his wife.
He took a sip of the drink, his wife took a sip and then set the cup down between them. As he began to eat his few bites of hamburger, the people around them were looking over and whispering.
Obviously they were thinking, 'That poor old couple - all they can afford is one meal for the two of them.'
As the man began to eat his fries a young man came to the table and politely offered to buy another meal for the old couple. The old man said, they were just fine - they were used to sharing everything.
People closer to the table noticed the little old lady hadn't eaten a bite. She sat there watching her husband eat and occasionally taking turns sipping the drink.
Again, the young man came over and begged them to let him buy another meal for them. This time the old woman said 'No, thank you, we are used to sharing everything.'
Finally, as the old man finished and was wiping his face neatly with the napkin, the young man again came over to the little old lady who had yet to eat a single bite of food and asked 'What is it you are waiting for?'
She answered
