Facebook is considered a business-friendly social media tool. You could use the “Like’ button in your site by linking it to your Facebook page and people could share that content to their friends as well.

Following Twitter, Following Sales
Twitter is a micro-blogging site that allows twits/tweets of 140 characters. Twittering is posting simple text fit to a single post. There is no need to follow a lot of people, they just have to follow you! There is no need to post a lot of things through the day. For companies a post a day is enough.
There are companies that use Twitter as a customer service vehicle. For your business, you could consider other angles as well such as the following:

I attended one of Jonny's Social Media Courses and have found it invaluable in helping with the development and implementation of our social media strategy. Whether you are regular user or new to Social Media Jonny will help you no end.
I recently attended a Social Media course where Jonny was the co- presenter. The course was excellent in that it was informative and beneficial to help me develop my social media strategy. Jonny is an excellent presenter with a wealth of knowledge and expertise, which fortunately, Jonny was able share in a way that even those of us who are less savvy in the social media arena were able to understand!
Well done - Jonny
Jonny, co-delivered a masterclass in social media course that I attended in July 13 at York University. He demonstrated a deep knowledge of everything in the world of social media and was able to pass his knowledge onto the course attendees in a descriptive, helpful and lasting way. There was no area of the subject that he couldn't provide information on and he clearly has a passion for enabling others to take advantage of the business opportunities social media can bring. Jonny keeps at the forefront of the ever changing developments in social media and would be a vital asset to any business that is looking to penetrate or improve its presence and win new business through tools such as LinkedIn and Twitter. I highly recommend his services
Jonny is in short excellent, he makes fairly uninteresting complicated subjects animated, easy to digest and tailored to your individual needs. Jonny ensures he knows the requirements, strengths and weaknesses of his clients so that he can ensure you are getting the most of his expertise. I would not hesitate to recommend Jonny to friends and business associates.
I was recommended Jonny by another social media contact I have - always a good sign! And he did not disappoint. I didn't have much budget and had a very specific (& rather strange!) requirement for my twitter account.
I have never actually met Jonny and didn't need to as he advised over phone & email about my strategy, and then came up with a plan that would work over a very managable period of 6 weeks. And then he implemented it. Sounds straightforward right? But we all know that doesn't always happen!
Would definitely use him again and actually have 1 or 2 other projects already in the pipeline that I'll be speaking to him about in due course.
I gave Jonny a pretty exacting brief to deliver a 2 day Social Media training course. He delivered against the brief and more.. in a professional, personable and fun way. Would recommend him unreservedly!
