Many small businesses want to integrate Facebook into their marketing plans, but don’t know how to use it. Aimed at helping more small businesses to use its product, Facebook launched a new site, Facebook for Business. The website features five tabs that businesses can use to build their Facebook page:
  • How it Works
  • Pages
  • Ads
  • Sponsored Stories
  • Platform
In each tab, users will find steps specific to creating each aspect of their Facebook page. “While the new page doesn’t tout any new features, it definitely serves as a well-time reminder that unlike Google+, Facebook is all about using its platform for company branding,” wrote Dave Smith on Technology.Inc.com. Realizing its competition with Google Plus, Facebook continues to attempt to one-up their fellow social media platform. A Facebook representative told Smith that Facebook is a way for businesses to build social relationships with customers while also taking advantage of word-of-mouth marketing. Facebook.com/business was created to make this process even easier for businesses.
