Historically, people have considered Facebook Ads and Google AdWords to be mutually exclusive, competitors, and think that a choice has to be made between the two.

Any content can be made shareable. It’s creating shareworthy content that presents the real challenge. You grow your exposure by creating shareworthy content so your posts need to stand out in the overwhelming abundance of information on the average person’s newsfeed.
