Life Beyond The Like: Uses & Gratifications Of Sharing Business Facebook Page Content, Sara M. Nash 2015 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Life Beyond The Like: Uses & Gratifications Of Sharing Business Facebook Page Content, Sara M. Nash

Understanding users’ reasons for “sharing” will help businesses ...
