Everything you ever wanted to know about Facebook for business

Holy crap - it's gonna take me days to get through all the info here: The Ultimate Guide to Facebook Marketing | Copyblogger

People keep asking about FB, so thought I'd share.

One thing you don't see very often, is a break-down of how much time is spent on Facebook, and what each of those hours is worth in relation to how much money it brings, or what those hours could do invested elsewhere.

Facebook can bring some business, but I think the hype is blown way out of proportion for the average business.

Absolutely, 100% correct. Facebook is good for keeping in front of folks I guess, as long as they're the right folks. Ask yourself whether your customer demographic is spending their time on facebook.

Ours sure as heck are not.
