Answered by Michael Siler on Jan 28, 2013

5 Answers | Asked by Ron Benamor on Jan 23, 2013

Answered by Michael Siler on Jan 24, 2013

I completely agree with Natalie. If your followers are given content that’s valuable to them I feel as if they’re much more likely to “share” it with their friends. Then, if their friends find the content interesting, the chances of them “liking” your page increas...
