Building a website can be a long, time consuming and often expensive task. Publishing a Facebook page on the other hand is quick, free and can generally be done by the work experience kid (they’re on Facebook all day anyway right!). Its no surprise then that more people are using Facebook pages or other social media tools in lieu of developing their own standalone site. This infographic takes a look at whether you really need to build a website from scratch or whether some other easier or cheaper options will work just as well.
