I just listened to the FB training on the webinar and I learned quite a bit of new information. I also learned of about 4 people/businesses that I should connect to! FB Ads is very intriquing too. Bless Amy from Jewels Specialty Foods heart for her plug of Mom Squad too :)
Thanks for the great info.
