What Facebook is about for Business Owners
The goal of News Feed is to deliver the right content to the right people at the right time so they don’t miss the stories that are important to them.
According to Nielsen Digital Ad Ratings, Facebook is 85% accurate in broadly targeted global campaigns — and up to 90% accurate for US campaigns combining age and gender.
Facebook launched in 2004, the goal was to bring people together. As they grew and connected more people with one another, they created the great opportunity to connect businesses with the people who mattered to them. Initially was a network to connect college students all over the world, now is one of the top Social Media platforms used for personal and business use.
Facebook launched sponsored groups in 2006 to connect users with the brands they love. Large retailers were able to direct-market to Facebook users through Sponsored Groups. Then Facebook revolutionized advertising by enabling people to engage with businesses.
Then, we see the merging of Facebook and Instagram in the last couple of months. Now is three who are merging.
While all three apps will continue to work as stand-alone applications, the underlying messaging infrastructure will be integrated. For example, a Whats App user could message an Instagram user, something that’s currently not possible.
The integration is projected to be completed by the end of 2019 or early 2020, according to The New York Times, which interviewed various people familiar with the project.
With this update, business owners or entrepreneurs will be able to message their customers, regardless of which messaging platform they’re using — the change would appear (in theory) to extend the reach of a Facebook Messenger chatbot to a significantly larger and more geographically, and demographically, diverse population, which creates a super-compelling case for businesses to engage, communicate and improve their reach with their customers via chat.
In 2007 Facebook Pages: which were distinct, customized profiles designed for businesses, bands, celebrities, and more to represent themselves on Facebook.

Business owners can have statistics, access and even connect to their Instagram posts in order to have fresh and updated content. Everyday we have new tools, new tendencies and very competitive market in the creation and maintenance of these Facebook Pages.
Custom Audiences was a powerful tool that Facebook released in 2012. Power Editor users could upload bulk data like emails, user IDs or phone numbers, and create a targeted Custom Audience. Audiences and the right classification for it, for your business is a great tool and an informed TARGET for you to start researching, if you are doing the marketing yourself.
