    Hi, Nice Blog! Good info here. Facebook is a wonderful source of traffic now a days. A lot of efforts are done by the webmasters to monetize Facebook to get traffic. But, only few of them are successful. You will not believe but, I am getting near about 15000 Unique Visitors only from my Facebook Fan Pages to my websites every month. Facebook has really enhanced my sales in a terrific way. I have developed my own method, With the help of which, I have reached at 5000 friends level in 7 days only and I got near about 70000 fans in last 30 days only. These fans visit my websites and I earn a lot of bucks :).
