IWSG: Social Media Blues

IWSG: a place where writers and friends share woes or hugs.
Welcome to mine!

I have a love-hate relationship with Facebook. My initial reason for setting my account there was for business, but since my 7-year author sabbatical, I've lost much of my fanbase and online presence. This wasn't of my own choosing but here I am.

I'm slowly reemerging and Facebook is my main door to online presence. 

I know many authors haven't touched Facebook with an eyelash bat. For the most part, it's what I'm familiar with. I could reevaluate my views/strategy regarding Facebook and approach it differently--how do you do it?

If you haven't touched Facebook, I'd love to know your reasons. If you're on Facebook, what do you like or don't like about it? What works for you? How do you make it work for you?
