  1. There are two things that a number of Facebook pages are doing these days that annoy me. One is posting something from their site with a really short comment like “this isn’t good” or “what do you all think?” Wow. Thanks for that brilliant, in-depth analysis!

    The other thing is asking an inane question like “if you had $10,000 to spend of Facebook ads, how would you spend it?”
