Why Your Self-Hosted Blog is More Valuable than Your Facebook Page
April 22, 2011 Leave a comment
Facebook has taken the Web by storm in a very short period. In addition to being the highest ranking social networking site, it is the second most visited site in the world according to Alexa, the popular blog measuring tool. Facebook’s popularity is so great that it unseated Google as the king of the Web one day in 2010.
Even though Facebook offer relationships, fun, and exposure, following are five reasons why I think your self-hosted blog is more valuable than your Facebook Page.
Here are the 5 reasons according to author Marcie Hill:
“1. You can control your own media and content.
2. You can reach a very targeted group.
3. You have the chance to get paid for ads.
4. You can rank high on Google.
5. Everybody is not on Facebook.”
To this I would add “You don’t own Facebook.” Facebook can and it will and it does change at anytime without notice regardless of impact to you.
