Most of us know we should be putting more effort into the content we are posting on one of our most prized and rewarding marketing channels, but the truth is Facebook updates are just one of those things that can be done pretty quickly, so when we look at the long list of things to do for the day, it just happens to be one we can cross off pretty quickly.
