Some Observations…

  1. Grammar, punctuation, and spelling are your friends. Please get to know them.
  2. Seven lines. Three sentences.
  3. Why would you ever publicize a competitor on your site or Facebook page?

Truly baffling.


If you want the public to read it — regardless of where it is — it is considered an advertisement for your business.

An “About Us” page on Facebook or your website it no different.
