    Hello,

    If we made the proper setting such as region, customer age for our facebook page according to our target customer then we able to drive more traffic.

    Facebook already offers targeted traffic in their Advertising network.

    The issue is, what is your actual ROI on those facebook dollars spent?

    FB advertising is great if you are selling products directly or earning from affiliate programs, however if your goal is to simply get traffic to a forum which will be earning fractions of what it will cost you to advertise on FB.... tough to justify.

    Revenue wasn't a part of the question, though. I think he's confused and doesn't know that you can do targeted Facebook advertising. If he wants targeted traffic, Facebook is a great tool.

    What is the best way to use facebook advertising to direct facebook users to my site from my facebook page? (I don't even have 1,000 likes yet on it, so it needs to be paid advertising to target those that don't like my page)

    Why would you pay when you can accomplish the same for free?

    Find groups on FB that are in your niche... and post there. Share insightful content to those groups.

    When you say post there, do you mean make comments on what they are posting themselves?

    Balance it out.... between participating yourself and also linking content to your forum there.

    If the group is fairly dead, as many are... just link your forum there.

    Every forum should have a facebook page anyway.

    I used Facebook Advertising system once, caught good amount of targeted users. Although, some of the posts are being reached to 10 or less than users each time. Not the best, but at-least I have users.

    You can get traffic from Facebook if you use it properly. There are different post types available on the Facebook, like offers, call, get message, help people find your business, event, note etc. You need to use proper post type first. You should also create a group for your business or niche and also contribute to other groups as well. This way you will reach to a broad spectrum of users. If you still not get much traffic, you should try Facebook advertising which is a paid traffic generator.
