Best Practice GuideThe Facebook ecosystem1Build The irst step is building your presence with a  Facebook Page. Pages allow you to create an identity for your business in the social graph - the map of the connections among people and the things they care about. If you have physical store locations, link your Page with a  Place. You can use  Social Plugins, the  Graph API and  Apps on Facebook to create social experiences involving your products and online properties that are engaging and personalized. 2Engage Creating these Facebook touch points allows you to start building your fan base and engaging with your customers.  Facebook Like Ads are the quickest way to acquire fans.  Publishing and engaging in conversations with your fans will allow you to deepen relationships and gain valuable insights. 3Amplify Every time someone interacts with your business, that action gets published into the  News Feed, creating word of mouth. These organic stories are extremely effective at getting others to engage and take action, and can be shared with a much larger number of potential and current customers by using  Facebook Ads and  Sponsored Stories. Facebook Ads include the names of friends who have already connected to your business. Sponsored Stories enable you to increase the distribution of News Feed stories about your business. Together, these tools give you the effectiveness of earned media, at the scale and predictability of paid media. Every campaign you run has a lasting impact via the relationships you build along the way. This is the new word of mouth and research has shown it’s twice as effective at driving results.4
