However, the world has but been reduced to a point where a business can market its products with just clicking on a few buttons. Facebook has given people the opportunity to advertise their products and services to the world since almost everyone has a Facebook account. Perceptions of the products and services can be gathered in the comments section hence these can help in knowing what the people think of the business’ products.
