To keep it brief, I only hold contact details of people with whom I am in active correspondence - e.g. I am working on a commission for them; they have contacted me to offer a workshop or demonstration, etc. These 'details' are kept as minimal as possible, e.g. a name, an email address and / or a phone number, a correspondence / delivery address if work needs sending out.
If you have chosen to follow me on Facebook I may PM you if, for example, I am taking part in an event that I think you might be interested in attending. I will usually only do this if you are known to me personally. Otherwise, I will post a public message that you may respond to by Private Message if you are interested in following it up.
