Facebook is a popular social networking website that allows registered users to create profiles, upload photos and video, send messages and keep in touch with friends, family and colleagues. Because of Facebook's unique ability to reach over 1 billion people worldwide and target exactly the demographic one wishes, more and more businesses are using it to drive awareness and engage with their customers. No other media channel provides companies - big or small - such a great opportunity to make online sales, get a following around their brand and create a platform where customers can discuss their products and services.
