    I spend almost a couple of hours in a week on Facebook. I rarely use Facebook for social promotions.

    At the moment I have a big responsive audience so what I do every morning is to select a random post on my blog, create a new one or simply share one of my youtube videos. That takes less than 5 minutes, I post on my profile, fan page and group.

    Then after I invite people who have liked related pages using software. The software basically sends inbox messages to facebook users inviting them to join my page. I don't invite them to my website or offers directly, they'll find all that on the page. This helps me get fans on a daily bases, 365 days a year.

    Once in a while, I'll use the software to send friend requests and everyone who accepts my friend request gets added to a facebook group. Some people are in my page, profile and group as well (these are real fans). I use a page, group and profile so that I can be able to reach as many people as possible.

    All this is done in less than 5 minutes a day, then I just keep checking notifications and respond to any questions. So even if I don't post anything for 3 days on facebook I'll still get traffic from FB because of these daily invites.

    The secret to successful social media marketing is to add new people on a daily bases. New members are the most active people and they help increase engagement. This works in any social network, twitter, google+, tumblr etc.

    For example, who's more active in this forum? Old members who joined when it started or the new members?

    So I spend 5 minutes a day on facebook :D

    Almost 5 hours per day- that's how much time I spend for FB per day because there are many important information were posted in Facebook. I can miss an important event or necessary information if I do not check FB occasionally. For my business, Facebook also is very helpful because I'm working in Online Marketing. I have to manage fanpage on Facebook, engage with my customers to build customers' relationship, sometimes it's a great source of traffic for my site.

    It depends on the number and size of the projects I run, 20 minutes per day for posting and analizing the data.

    Daily I just go on Facebook a couple times per day to check messages and notifications. I always have a browser tab open and logged in to Facebook as well, so I don't have to log in each time I want to check something.

    I have several Facebook pages (1 for each site I have) so it can take more time to check everything. What I usually do is go on Facebook 1-2 times per month and schedule my posts or I use a script that I have for the same purpose. I try to do 2 weeks to a month at a time and this helps to be more efficient with my time.

    Other than that I don't go on Facebook. My personal/account page has basically nothing on it. I created it just to have pages for my websites.

    The total time I spend on Facebook every day is around 15-20 minutes. That includes posting on my Facebook pages, replying to any messages and some looking around for research.

    Most of my posts get scheduled on Facebook and I do them for usually a week and that helps to be more efficient. Other than that I really don't spend much time on it.

    Cheers, Dean.

    I have been spending around 2-3 hours but I have to say FB it's not really my thing. I understand that as a work tool it's fantastic. A great way to communicate and give your work some exposure. Now as a hobby? There certainly better things to do agreed?

    I never spent a whole lot of time on Facebook but the last week or so I have been searching around Facebook to get ideas about how to improve my internet marketing and online money making ventures.

    I never really used to use the search function on Facebook too much but it has become rather useful in finding good stuff.

    In total, I think it probably adds up to 30 minutes/1 hour daily, depending on how bored I am. I don't like to pour too much time into it, though, or else guilt will hit me back in the neck for trifling away time I could have spent doing productive activities. I only check back once every 4-5 hours, and only stay for more than 5 minutes if I find interesting posts or discussions to read (which happens...quite frequently).

    I am using facebook for personal networking as well as business. I check facebook couple of times in a day. When I am on facebook I spend just about 30 minutes. I interact with my friends posts, post my personal stories as well as share my contents.

    I generally spend a couple of hours, which might me longer than the average person, but I am also the administrator of a couple of big ages, so it's normal.

    Facebook is a wonderful tool for marketing! I try to spend at least one hour a day on it, more if I can. There are so many different groups you can join to share your business with! Also, depending on your market, it is easy to sell items directly to Facebook.
