entrepreneur, business, online brand

Facebook is a giant social network site and undoubtedly one of the most powerful application of Internet technology. Since 2004, the billion dollar company has consistently worked towards providing better user experiences for the entire "Facebook universe".

Right here in Nigeria, people use Facebook for various things. Some are  creative, and resourceful while some are dumb.

In my own part of Facebook universe, I have amazing people building great networks/Business communities using Facebook groups.

I am not speaking of boring stuffs that are spammy but quality organised engagements that will inspire you and help you develop guts to lead your life intentionally as an entrepreneur. I belong to majority of these groups and it's been phenomenal.

The founders of these groups are creative entrepreneurs who facilitate a community of people with common interest to multiply their influence.

The founders are Nigerians but membership is not limited by nationality. Anyone can become a member. It should be noted that while you can join these groups for free and have access to the general conversation, there are also paid services. As you know it, value is not cheap.
