In recent years, boxing has given up ground to a new combat sport, mixed martial arts. The overall idea remains the same: get two tough people in a ring and let them try to knock each other out, with high kicks, choke holds, arm bars and other types of moves now a standard part of the contest.

Why a Facebook page should be at the top of your social media to-do list.

1. Facebook demographics favor business.

It’s not just kids on Facebook anymore. Nearly 42% of all Facebook users are over the age of 35. That percentage translates into a whopping 350 million people! And if we branch this statistic out to include any legal adult, that number nearly doubles to 650 million. If Facebook were a country, its population would be the third largest in the world.
