Facebook Is Friendlier

According to Colleen Taylor of GigaOm, Facebook.com/business debuted Tuesday to help small businesses get the most from Facebook.

The company is billing the new web page as an “online education center” that gives directions on such things as how to set up a profile page, create targeted ads and deals, and interact with customer feedback online.

The timing is interesting, as it comes just a week after Google began shutting off all company profiles on its Google+ social network, a stance that has inspired a good deal of controversy in recent days.

    I think it’s good that they’re introducing guidelines and tips for businesses as in my experience so few businesses and organisations are using it in a useful way. Their content is often frivolous and actually irritates users to the point that they will not hesitate to ‘unlike’ them.
