Facebook makes it to the top 10 on the Forbes list of worlds’ most valuable brands yet again. It all started with students who were the keenest and probably the first to get attracted to the idea of social networking.

This tells a lot about the visitor’s persona. It’s like an online research to test the waters before releasing the real-world marketing campaigns.
“As a rough rule of thumb, post four status updates on items about outside news items or discoveries for every post promoting a product. And when you do mention a product or service, try to do so in a helpful way.”
