1. Ramp Up Your Shared Posts

You've just posted a photo or video about a new product and you want everyone to know about it. Everyone has a busy news feed and you're not sure any amount of thought you put into the perfect time of day to post is going to get your photo or video in front of enough people. Don't worry, Facebook will let you boost your post.

You can actually tell Facebook that you want page likes from users who live within 20 miles of your business, within a certain demographic and whether or not they like, or do not like, certain other pages. It's intense.
