Technology, particularly mobile, helps businesses grow by connecting them with people around the world and the truth is creating a mobile presence can be difficult to build and expensive. 

Facebook Pages are the mobile solution and businesses do have a global mobile opportunity, and Facebook Pages are the mobile solution for many of the over 60 million businesses using the product each month around the globe.
