By looking at the Facebook marketing campaigns of large brands, a small business owner or entrepreneur can better understand how they use Facebook business pages to build awareness and promote. In this series of posts, we’ll review the pages of companies, by industry, that made Ignite Social’s list of the Top 50 Branded Facebook Fan Pages of 2010 vs 2009.
Below, I identify pages of fast food restaurant brands on that list, giving each brand’s rank in both years. Then I note Facebook page Tabs and campaigns that caught my eye.
