Proof That Facebook's Marketing Magic Is Working

General Motors (NYSE: GM  ) is advertising once again on Facebook (NASDAQ: FB  ) after an 11-month hiatus that raised questions about the value of social media advertising. Back then, General Motors had trouble seeing any meaningful correlation between social media advertising and sales results, motivating it to pull its $10 million advertising budget off the platform.

In this video, Motley Fool contributor Steve Heller weighs in on the development and what it means for Facebook investors.
