  2. 2. How and why to advertise on Facebook? Facebook, a popular social networking site, has become a worldwide phenomenon since it began in February of 2004. It is an internet medium that allows people to connect with friends, family, coworkers, and acquaintances. Millions of people have joined Facebook, thousands every day and today it is one of the fastest growing social networking Web sites.

Advertisers and marketers face the challenge to effectively reach and capture their intended target market. These technological strides have placed a great deal of emphasis on relationship marketing.

Facebook proves to be a promising virtual place to promote a company’s market offerings. Marketers have the ability to reach 175,000 active Facebook users, attach social actions to your ads to increase relevance and create demand for your product with relevant ads (Facebook.com).
