Facebook Makes It Easier to Build Your Page (But You Still Need a Strategy)

Score one for Facebook in its ongoing battle with Google, with the latest round focused on bringing businesses into the social networking fold.

This week, Zuckerberg et al. unveiled a tidy new how-to guide for businesses to create their own pages. Meanwhile, Google remains wishy-washy on how to integrate businesses into its new Google + network.

To gain the biggest advantage with your Facebook presence, you still need clear objectives and a solid strategy to match.

So as you try out Facebook’s new guide, why not refer back to these key considerations for your company Facebook page.
