What do I do with "fans" on Facebook?

I'm lucky enough to be experiencing some success in my career, and people are adding me on Facebook who don't know me. I want to communicate with these people as I appreciate their support, but how do I do this in the best and safest way?

I added a few of them early on, but then stopped pretty soon after a member of my collective gained a pretty bad stalker through befriending a "fan". I want to be in touch with these people but I don't want to give them access to my friends, photos etc.
So from someone who is active on facebook but not particularly great with it, to you, hopefully more savvy social media citizens, what's my best option? Do I need to create groups, and is that watertight? Or do I have to start up an artist page and try and herd everyone off my personal profile and onto that? Is there a way to do that without it coming across as a jerky move, ie. "I want you to support me but I don't want to be your friend"?
Thanks in advance and sorry for anonymizing this - I feel like if I link this to my profile it's going to be like a humblebrag: oh poor me with my fans, please play your tiny violins now
