Alessandro Rea's curator insight, June 1, 2013 4:09 AM
“When I decided to launch Social Media Examiner’s Facebook page I turned to Amy Porterfield. Not only did Amy help me build a super attractive Facebook page, she also took an active role in the day-to-day management of our page. In less than 10 months we grew an active fan base of more than 16,000 people using Amy’s techniques. I strongly recommend her.”

As the internet and Social Media evolve one thing is clear - Facebook is king. Fast approaching 1,000,000,000 members (yes that’s ONE BILLION), Facebook is the site where everyone is spending time online!



Every successful business depends on people - Facebook is where they are spending their time online. Either you will use Facebook and succeed or you will not embrace Facebook and fail.
- Sean Malarkey



Have you put off using Facebook to generate more business? Has a fear of not knowing where to start kept you from moving forward?


Today, that’s all going to change!

Say it with pictures. I suspect this new feature will lead to a shed load of "one fingered" salutes where the poster disagrees with the original post but it'll be fun to see how creative people get . . .
