    Thanks for this! Great tips. Except I don’t know if Facebook is worth the effort, not with the way they’re throttling non-paying Pages.

      Kelly – I’d have to agree that it’s hard to know if Facebook is worth the effort. It’s not just the recent changes, but the continuous changes that make it difficult to use the site. We’ve posted two recent Facebook updates in the past week, based on discussions from Social Media Marketing World – some still feel Facebook is relevant and perhaps the insights will help! Thanks for taking the time to comment.
