Oh yes life goes on...One time I quit and it begged and bombarded me with all sorts of don't go's even taking some of my friends and saying how much they will miss me. I kept saying let me go and they wouldn't. They finally did saying we wont cancel it but just let it go dormant allowing you to come-back. It gave me the stalker creeps. Today, that stalking is done quietly

There is no question in my mind that if I was not on Facebook, it would not stop me from getting all the referrals from past satisfied clients.  From my perspective, I put my eggs in many different baskets and one basket getting tipped over does not stop my progress.  Great Question!

I can't remember any business that came to me because of Facebook, but maybe I've strengthened some bonds with clients because of it. Some of my past clients asked to become "friends" so, I presume, they see a more personal side of me than I normally show in any of my marketing.

Facebook is like a form of communication. That's like asking would your business survive without a telephone. Of course it would; it might suffer a bit until you find another way to communicate with your clients.

I rarely use my personal page now, but I'm not going to quite FB, since it is one of the largest networks over there and I've had my personal page for 8 years or more. There are family connections and close friends. I just reconnected there to 2 friends I did not talk for 5 years. Life sometimes gets busy.... but why completely burn all bridges. You do not need to log there every day, few times/month is enough.
