Understanding the target channel is the most important thing for social media marketing. Maximum people choose the wrong media for their SMM. In fact, majority people doesn't have idea how to use them and so we can notice such indiscriminate posting in social media channels.

Great article Shaddymak, I recently learned that in Facebook you can find a Facebook Group in your niche, then in the Facebook search window, you can search "Favorite pages of people who are members of (__the page name___)" & it will list the other pages members of that group like. Amazing. Rock on!
