The Social Media Advertising
A recent survey showed that college students would rather give up their best friend for 30 days than their social networking sites. This result shows that social networking sites have become an important part of our lives where people spend significant hours every day to connect to their friends and make influence on the society theybelong. These sites first began as a way to keep in touch with classmates, friends and families. However, the evolution began when people started to use these sites as a tool to share what they are interested, promote their ideas and more importantly, advertise their business.

As a result, our ads will appear on people’s pages that listed our keywords as their interests. By doing this, it was easy for us to reach the demographic that our business is targeting, thus increasing the efficiency of our ads.
Last but not least, we promoted a Facebook page that wasalready existed by suggesting it to friends. Facebook page was a fascinating idea not only because it is free but also because it is highly reciprocal. People could post interesting articles on the page and they could exchange their opinions about it. When we know that our voices are heard, we are satisfied that we are making an influence to the society surrounding us; the page is no longer an...
