It’s preferable is you post twice per day, seven days per week. Keeping up with a schedule like and brainstorming new post ideas can be difficult.

That’s why we’ve put together this list of seven post ideas for Facebook. 

Social media is a great tool to use if you hope to connect with prospective customers. You can share product information, testimonials, photos, and more. Past, present, and future customers can engage with your social media profiles by liking your post on Facebook, retweeting your tweet on Twitter, commenting on your Instagram photo, or watching your videos on Snapchat. This positive engagement is great for business, but what happens when someone has a negative experience and decides to use your social media profiles to let others know about it? 

Social media is a champion in the marketing world. From Facebook and YouTube to Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat, there are several great platforms that will help spread your company’s message positively.

According to a study done by the University of Wollongong, “there are questions about the ability of children so young to understand advertising and its intent and not be deceived and manipulated by it. Experts say that children don't understand persuasive intent until they are eight or nine years old and that it is unethical to advertise to them before then.”

Social media is powerful. According to the PEW Research Center, seven-in-ten Americans use social media. Social media use blossomed from only five percent in 2005, to about 50 percent in 2005, and finally 69 percent today. It’s not just popular with individuals – businesses have taken to social media in every imaginable way possible, using various platforms, from Facebook and Twitter to Snapchat and Pinterest, to market their product or service.
