    You can make fan-page of your main company there you can display your products but creation of direct pages of your products can create problems for your business products! so the best practice is to promote your own company that can automatically promote the products

    It really depends on how you market your product. If it involves spamming other people pages and walls facebook probably won't be too kind to it but you never know.

    However methods like facebook ads or widely accepted and often used my marketers. There are also various free ways to market on facebook but you just need to know how.

    Facebook is a very efficient source of advertisement. You can create fan pages for your company and there are many other more techniques to promote on facebook. But it all depends on how you promote your product and what product you are promoting.

    Why don't you use forums like digital point to promote your products instead of using facebook and other networking website?

    You can stay within the TOS, but you can also stray outside it.
    Most people doing $x,xxx+ /day with fan pages break the TOS but at that point it doesn't really matter to them.

    Yes, you can promote products through facebook. You can put links to the products you promote on the wall of your profile and/or business page so that friends and/or page fans will be able to see them.

    You can use Fb for Advertising your products, if you want to create an Advertise on it then they will charge you for it, but if your are making your company profile and Displaying your products or reffering link in FB pages to your products page, i think that is alrite.

    I definitely agree with most of the comments here, but starting a fan page for a product and only retrieving 100 fans might not be the most efficient idea. Instead, consider advertising opportunities (side banners, etc.) - Facebook gives you the opportunity to geographically target your consumer base, so not only does this have the targeting capabilities, but it also provides you with the span of reach the creation of a fan page can't provide you with.

    If you are creating a page to promote a product you have to either drive traffic from outside of FB to FB with emails, links, etc, or you need to buy advertising with FB. If you try to market completely within FB for free you will most likely be reported for spam and have a chance of your fan page deleted (which would cause you to lose everything you worked for).

    Make a Facebook Fanpage, Integrate it with your website and take use of social ads to recruit fans. Also start creating groups within your niche with the primary goal to recruit them to the fanpage in an ongoing process! FBML can also handle online signup-forms from Facebook and post data to your database on your website. Be sure to implement a conversion tracking system to see where the customers are coming from and to put a value to each conversion!

    You can but you you need to be very familiar with their terms of service. Even when you are "paying" for advertising on FB, they have very strict guidelines and adherence to FB policies is a must. The type of ad and the ad content are highly scrutinized. Targeting and landing page design is critical as well. First and foremost, FB is a social site.
