Your business page and personal FB page must be professional. Don’t ever post unwanted posts to get followers. Focus on your brand and share things which are needed for your business. Your FB page is as much relevant as your business page. So you should focus on it also. If you post something which is not relevant or which will raise any social issue, you may lose a follower or friend. Better stay serious or have fun in a limit that will never cross any discrimination or create social issues.

Enable your posts to be visible to everyone. But remember to check whether 'Who can add things to my timeline?' is set to 'only me'. Turn on approval of all tags once they show up on your timetable. You don't need other individuals' thoughts on your page and you would prefer not to be labelled at the others page.
3. Stay friendly
Behave as a friend. Brands are well known for their friendliness and fun. Interact with your audience as a human. Make friends by approving all friend requests but beware of fake profiles. Our goal is to increase our followers, but never add fake profiles. Remember to stay away from those friend requests.
