New Facebook Rules Will Sting Entrepreneurs

It's going to become even tougher for small business to reach customers through Facebook without shelling out more bucks. The good news? When most customers are ready to buy, they will more likely search on Google for what they want rather than social media. Contact us to help with your SEO plan. And on an ironic note, I may have to spend money to promote this post in order for you to see it.

Starting in mid-January, the social network will intensify its efforts to filter out unpaid promotional material in user news feeds.
