The blue thumbs up is a sign of approval coveted by not just personal Facebook users, but businesses owners hoping more 'likes' translates into more customers and more money.

"A lot of brands struggle with how to get likes and comments on Facebook," HEYO CEO Nathan Latka says.

The Blacksburg social media company HEYO is providing a free way for anyone to run a Facebook promotion to help your business grow with it's 'Timeline Contest Creator.'
