In order to have a successful social media marketing campaign, it is important to understand the behavior of customers on the brand pages and what motivates them to engage on a Facebook Brand Page which eventually should lead to purchase of the brand's products or services. It is recognized that members of Facebook Brand Pages tend to exhibit favorable brandrelated engagement and buying intentions. The purpose of this research is to examine the motivation that influences customer engagement on a Facebook brand page. The Motivations are classified according to entertainement, information, social integration, social identity, renumeration and empowerment motivations according to the User and Gratification theory.

Customer engagement types are classified according to their level of engagement from the lowest level consumers, contributors and creators being the highest level of online brand activeness. Finally, the research will analyze how customer engagement influences buyers purchase intention of the brand's products or services.
