Overall Satisfaction with Facebook for Business

I used Facebook for Business to recruit employees and study participants for many jobs. I already had tons of fans, so getting them to work for me wasn't too hard! During just the summer, we recruited over 700 users to take part in paid studies for market research.
  • Finding the demographic you want is easy
  • Facebook practically does my job
  • Responding to users with Facebook for Business was awesome too. It even automated resume submissions.
  • For the first few tests payments seemed very difficult.
  • I wish facebook had better support and treated small business like people.
  • We were accidentally flagged and removed once, and then told, "oh it was just an accident, won't happen again," after losing tons of business. No reason. Super frustrating, and no accountability.
  • Paid for itself instantly in my case.
  • Easily screened users for jobs/studies
  • Facebook makes it easy to communicate with your users and new customers at once, so we didn't need other CMS services.
Just for finding users to run our projects, we used many products, from Mturk, User Studies, Prolific, and Respondent. All of them gave us instant users, but no private communications, or opportunities for future work the way Facebook does.
The few difficulties we had starting were nothing compared to the reward, and the small amount of work had to be put into it. Finding people interested in something is what Facebook is good at, and they give you that power for pennies. It works great if you do your homework, and learn what works for others!
