We also discussed issues people have with their personal Facebook profiles, as well as some of the concerns that people have when it comes to Facebook Pages not getting much traction, and what to do about it if that’s happened to you.

      Bob Ross. :) That’s the painter (unfortunately now deceased) who used to say, “happy little cloud” and “happy little tree”. “Joy of Painting” can still be seen in the States on PBS occasionally. Awesome UnPodcast, as usual!
