  1. Dana,
    I liked how you explained that Facebook can be used for businesses, campaigns and non-profit organizations. The 5 points how businesses benefit was interesting to read and a brilliant addition to your blog. The format used makes your blog easy to read and follow to each topic being discussed. Using bold letters helped with the separation of subtopics and the finding of important information provided. Describing the goals of the organizations, was helpful to me as a reader. People like to know the mission and purpose of an organization before donating. I enjoyed reading your blog and look forward to more.
