2. After you press “Boost Post”, this box will show up on your screen. You will see your post on the right and a list of options on the left. You will then want to determine your audience. You have the choice between people who like your page, people who like your page and their friends, and people you choose through targeting.

3. If you choose to advertise to people through targeting, you will need to press “create a new audience". When you press that button, this box will show up on your screen. You can choose multiple locations by typing them in. If your content or the place you’re advertising provides alcohol, you want to make sure your age range starts at 21. From there you can choose gender and interests. Be careful with putting too many interests because this could narrow your reach by being too specific!
