You’ve been a good business owner. You’ve embraced social media marketing and have worked non-stop to build up your online presence. You post, you reply, you tweet and built the best darn Facebook page on the web. Unfortunately, Facebook hates your guts and all that work is about to become worthless.
I remember talking to a business owner not more than 2 years ago and he was adamant on the fact that ‘this whole Facebook thing will be gone in 5 years’. A point of clarification, when my client said ‘Facebook thing’, he was actually referring to all of social media.
