Earlier this year, Facebook launched promoted posts for pages, giving page administrators the ability to greatly enhance their reach (just don’t bring it up with George Takei). Already, businesses are seeing incredible results through promoted posts, such as more clients and a better return on investment, according to new figures released recently by Facebook.

Something about public proclamations tends to make them more official. Wedding vows, for instance, seem to seal the deal to all who are present.
