Every day, millions of people around the world spend countless hours socializing with friends and connecting with their favorite brands on Facebook. With more than 1.28 billion monthly active users, it’s the world’s most vibrant and engaging social media website. As a result, it is equally attractive for entrepreneurs and brands around the world that are looking to find different ways of connecting with their target audiences. Similarly, “solopreneurs,” freelancers, and creative professionals have also found Facebook very effective in helping them expand their fan bases and sell more products.
