Getting the Most Out of Facebook Business Communication
Facebook - What Happens after the Facebook Like?
So, you click the “like” button. Now what? What does it really mean to “like” a Facebook page? Does it mean you really like the page? The brand? The product? Or are you just curious? Or might you even be guilty of lurking?
What did or would you have liked to see after you click like? Are you wanting to be inspired? What will inspire you to read a post? Click a link or a tab? Will you ever engage with the brand, or owner of the page you “like”? Do you remember the name of the product, service or brand?
The biggest question of all is, will you ever come back? Yes or No?

6. Respect your “likers”.

This is the purchasing stage.
If a user is in the information seeking stage, then they could also utilize their social networks to receive recommendations and opinions on a product or experience they are curious about.
