I created a Facebook Page and Group for the convention I'm running

My programming director seems to disagree to the point of telling me to stop doing so on my personal wall.


The first part of your post contradicts the second part. Is this a convention page or is it a personal wall?

If this is a personal account for you (with YOUR name and not the convention name) post whatever you want, but you probably shouldn't link to it from the convention's web page as if it's some official account.

If this is a convention group, fan page, or event, you should probably only post convention-related stuff. If this is a separate account created as if it were a person, you're doing it wrong...as Proz mentioned, there is a limit to the number of friends a personal account can have.

Also, I'd suggest setting up a Twitter account for the convention. Twitter is great for getting news out there and MUCH better than Facebook for at-con updates. ...and like others have said, keep that limited to convention stuff.
