Any business owner can create a Facebook page, but surprisingly few employ social media tactics that will win fans, engage customers and increase sales.
In 2007, Facebook introduced a new feature called “ Facebook Pages ”, which are user profiles for brands (companies, organizations, and celebrities). Facebook Pages have the look and feel of personal pages but offer additional features such as the ability to quickly send messages to thousands of fans. Sysomos analyzed nearly 600,000 Facebook Pages to investigate usage patterns.
Facebook says it now has more than 350 million monthly active users , an increase of 50 million from the 300 million it announced in September. If Facebook were a country, it would now have the 3rd largest population in the world, behind only China and India.
