Facebook Tips: 3 Essential Tips for Running a Facebook Page

I’ve decided I’m going to run a bit of a tips series on here. It’ll primarily be aimed at those that are in some way responsible for any online aspect of a small to medium business. Reason being, there are so many Social Media channels out there and the documentation that goes with each can be very lengthy and cumbersome (yes I spelt it right). So instead, I thought...

Get Your Facebook Updates into Newsfeeds with EdgeRank

Nope, it’s not an app, a paid-for service or any kind of automated-posting-spam. EdgeRank is the alogirthm that can have a strong influence on whether your Facebook updates get seen by others.
