Today, Facebook introduced a new subpage called Facebook Media that is designed to highlight great examples and new trends that illustrate how public figures, organizations and media companies are using Facebook to connect with their audiences.
On this new page, located at media.fb.com, Facebook says they will share data, best practices and success studies to help other content creators increase their impact on Facebook.
The Facebook Media page is divided up into four key sections focused on common goals shared by content creators and media companies.
Here is some more information about the sections and what’s contained in each one:

- Drive Referrals: Contains information about how to drive referrals by doing things like sharing links on your Page, adding the Like and Share buttons to your website, and other best practices. “After Bleacher Report increased the number of posts it shared to its Facebook Page, the site saw a 15X increase in referral traffic from Facebook.”
