And with a couple of clicks, a marketer can establish a list of Facebook users – both fans and non-fans – who have responded positively to those types of messages. Marketers could take some of this information from these tools and do any of three things – email sets of users based on their responses, targets specific ads at specific people, or they can go in search of users who have profiles tht match the brand’s more ardent fans.
