Is there a way to prevent a Facebook friend from sending you Inbox messages? I want to have a group called "Public Contact Only" that basically cannot have side-bar conversations with me. The idea is that if they want to communicate with me, I'll want it to be "Facebook public" (wall posts) only. Is this possible?

Create a Facebook Page. That sounds exactly like what you want. http://www.facebook.com/help/?page=904

Agreed; you cannot prevent friends from sending you Inbox messages. – mark4o Nov 20 '10 at 18:15
Plus, with a page, people can be your "fan". Everyone needs fans :-) – Cheekysoft Nov 29 '10 at 17:06
