Facebook is the largest social media platform to promote your posts. You may have shared your post on Facebook before, but you may not be following the correct strategy.
If you want to get targeted traffic using Facebook you need to figure out your target audience first. So if I am blogging under the Technology niche, I should be promoting my post in a group that focuses on Technology solely and not a Fitness or a Dating one.
