Facebook is the biggest and most popular social networking site. People talk about Facebook every time and everywhere. And now, beside Search Engine Optimization (SEO) plan, almost web master/owner think about ways to increase Fans for their Facebook Page in order to drive traffic to their page then go to their website.
Truly, if you have thousands of Fans, people will trust you as well as your service or product and also impress first time visitors who are your potential customers/fans.

Meaning you need to have high quality, interest and unique contents.
8. Launch a new promotion
