I should probably do this! I have to admit, I get a bit lazy with my fan page.

i'm glad my review helped! =]

Does your facebook page help sales or traffic any? I have yet to make one, even though i have a blog and twitter, i just can't make sense of how facebook helps draw in new people to your shop. with twitter, its easy to expand your followers by foloowing new etsy people. with my blog, people just seem to find it somehow, haha. but i don't get how facebook would help, as it seems like you could only get people to follow it if they've already seen you on etsy or your blog, twitter, etc.

SuaVoce, I hear ya! I too get a bit lazy, but the url was easy to set up, and I think, way worth it. It's much better to paste a facebook url with your shop name than a url with a bunch of random numbers.

Emmy, the point of the fan page is a lot like twitter. You follow other etsians, post your fan page url in the promotions forums so others can find you. Also, like twitter, your fans can see any updates or announcements you make. I can say that it DOES help with traffic. My top two referring sites are twitter and facebook. Sales, I can't say if it has brought any in, simply because I have no idea where my sales come from. I haven't figured out how to find that info yet. :-P Hope that helps a bit.
