I think the first episode I understand that timeline will be rolled out across all business pages over the next thirty days to step -- is for marketers to turn on timeline for their own personal profiles.
Understand how the cover -- that will help them to it to develop one for the business exactly so want to know how to use it for themselves.
Then they can tell authentic stories for their brand for their business given example of who's doing really well and how they're doing.
-- I'm biased I think Starbucks is doing a fantastic job in fact they showcase it as one of the prime examples on stage today.

The -- go away and so -- that is really encouraging brand marketers.
Whether it's you or whether it's start back to keep the -- -- and -- we want friends how do we get more friends and by the way it's FaceBook dot com slash after the bell.
Press the like but have.

Pitfall that you're asking about is is not having enough that -- friends or fans engaged in the Whitney you do that is really -- the community about them.
And provide valuable information advice special access that they wouldn't be able to get elsewhere -- stuff.
