Facebook for Business

Facebook is a phenomenon that has grown exponentially in a very short time and continues to do so. It was originally used mostly by college students to keep in

If you’re still not sold on this (not entirely convinced that Facebook networking offers great potential to help your company grow and reach new business contacts), you will find some reasons why you can’t afford to ignore Facebook as a networking tool.
