    All your points are correct. An FB page will give lots of benefits in driving traffic to our blog or site. Along with your points, it is another good idea to invite our friends to like that page, so that they will visit the blog if the post’s topic is interesting or useful for them. I think we all need fake profiles with more than 5000 friends, so that we can get lots of Likes to the page and hence lots of traffic! :)
