So what exactly is Facebook authorship? Basically it’s a new meta tag, writers and publishers can use to show the author profile or publishing page for content posted on Facebook.

Ever notice some Facebook Pages have a grey check mark verification badge next to their business name? It’s because they’ve been verified as a local business on Facebook.
While this isn’t to be confused with the blue check verification badge seen on profiles or pages of celebrities or major brands, applying to get your local business verified still has its benefits. 

This week’s #SocialMediaMinute will cover how to verify your local business page on Facebook.

My fiancé and I had a wonderful experience at this dealership. Our sales consultant, Chris Shaw, did an excellent job showing us the ins-n-outs of our future car and his enthusiasm was contagious. Chris understood that this was our first time buying a car from a dealership and was very patient and not pushy -- making sure to answer any questions we had. He also helped us come to a fair price and we even found a personalized thank you card left on the dashboard just before we drove home in our new car!
