    Great article. Short and too the point with powerful advise. I’m using tweetadder to target my follows and followers. What are your thoughts on this software? Is there a similar software for Facebook you might recommend?

    1. Hi Jorge, I haven’t used TweetAdder. As far as I know there is nothing like that for Facebook.
