Facebook for Business

Last week, Facebook debuted a step-by-step online guide aimed at helping small businesses use the social networking site. The company is billing the new web page, www.facebook.com/business, as an “online education center” that gives directions on such things as how to set up a profile page, create targeted ads and deals, and interact with customer feedback online.

Facebook’s new business web page does not come along with any new features – it simply puts a lot of information that may be handy for small businesses in one place. Perhaps most importantly, it shows that Facebook encourages companies to use its service for company branding.

Facebook allows small businesses to create rich social experiences, build lasting relationships and amplify the most powerful type of marketing – word of mouth,” a Facebook spokesperson was quoted as saying. They went on to say, “We created this business portal to make it even easier for people to reach these objectives and grow.”
