Yesterday, Miranda at Work at Home Adventures wrote a very interesting post about how a lot of people are resistant to signing up for Facebook and how this resistance could be detrimental to their efforts at finding legit work from home.
I couldn't agree more. Many of the job leads and other information I discover are found via Facebook and the various work at home related pages that I follow.
Now, don't get me wrong — there is nothing wrong with not joining Facebook if you absolutely are against it. You can certainly find work at home jobs without it by following blogs like this one, but Miranda made a great point that Facebook is an excellent resource that shouldn't be ignored unless you're just completely adamant that you want no part of Facebook.
If you are on Facebook, here is a big list of work from home Facebook pages that I “like” personally that you may also want to consider following yourself if you're actively seeking work at home leads, advice, and other information.

Facebook also has a cool feature called “interest lists” where you can create a list of work from home Facebook pages you follow around a certain topic so you don't miss any updates. Here is a work from home list you can follow now that includes my page as well as several others. Be sure to click “follow” in the upper right and then add the page to your Favorites on Facebook.
I realize this is a big list! Some of these pages post more than others and some are more about home business rather than working from home, but they all post valuable content at least occasionally and I do “like” each of these pages personally.
P.S. – Another great resource for finding home-based jobs is FlexJobs. I have a membership here, and I love it! There are hundreds of guaranteed legitimate work at home and/or flexible positions added daily by the FlexJobs team across several different categories. It's about $15 a month, but you can sign up and set your account to not bill you again after your first month if you just want to sign up and check it out, then decide if having a membership there would benefit you during your work at home job search.
