“Jane Smith likes Acme Cleaners, Inc.” or Jane Smith likes Acme Cleaners, Inc’s status”
If everyone on Cape Cod knew who Acme Cleaners, Inc was then your facebook page name would be fine. However, what if Acme Cleaners, Inc. is just starting out and not many people know about them?
If the facebook page name was called “Acme Cleaners – Cape Cod’s preferred laundry service for your dirty clothes” then the wall posts would look like this:
“Jane Smith likes “Acme Cleaners – Cape Cod’s preferred laundry service for your dirty clothes.” or Jane Smith likes “Acme Cleaners – Cape Cod’s preferred laundry service for your dirty clothes status”
