Using Facebook for business purposes is undoubtedly the only reason the site is worth so much. If advertisers felt there was no money to be made by pushing their goods and services to the millions of casual users, Mr. Zuckerberg and company would be taking out payday loans to make rent instead of hiring people to count their cash.

That being said, not every business on Facebook is going to succeed. Even the huge brands spending a lot of money on the site work hard to achieve success. They still have beautifully designed fan pages, and they still take their content very seriously and focus intently on what the public sees.

There’s a lot you can learn from the big boys out there in terms of creating a user-friendly, effective Facebook page.
