What do your “Likes” mean to you? When we “like” our favorite product on Facebook, we’re not simply telling everyone in digital land what our interests include. No: what we expect from those “Likes” is the interpersonal relationships we experience every day with comments, shares, pokes, and whatsits. “Liking” a brand on Facebook means a lot more to us when companies are willing to reciprocate.
Nowadays the web browser known as Internet Explorer (IE) is mostly known to be used by businesses.

While this is a valid strategy, it’s definitely not the type of strategy that’s going to help you truly stand out in the sea of posts that flood everyone’s news feed.
