Facebook might not have been the first social network, but it was definitely the first of its kind. It allowed people to make connections exclusively with people that they knew in the real world – a feature which was yet to be seen in other major social networks. As such, its impact was instant and it crushed everything before it, and everything that followed, in terms of sheer popularity. (No films about Twitter’s inception yet). So, if you want to market your restaurant to your local community, Facebook should be your first stop.
