An article about Facebook published yesterday on Advertising Age made me smile (and think). It says that “half of the biz is jumping on Facebook fanwagon, for ‘research’ of course”… Ops. I feel slightly “touched” by this sentence, as I’ve been also discovering and professionally “studying” Facebook in the last couple of weeks.
As a first step in my "study" (slightly "me-too", I must admit) I've started the Adverblog's friends group (if the link doesn't work, just search "adverblog" amd you'll find us).
All regular (and irregular) readers are welcome to join. I'd like the Facebook group to share links and ideas in a fast and informal way with the international/multicultural touch Adverblog always tries to have.
As I'm still in the learning phase of Facebook's functionalities and behavioural rules any suggestion or recommendation you might have on how to exploit it at best will be more than welcome.
Just one thing: if you want to be my friend on Facebook, please add a personal message to your request and tell me how you know me. I have a series of requests from people I don't know nor I have never heard about and that I'm not going to accept... sorry if I sound rude, but I think that adding a few lines to the request doesn't take much time and it's definitely human/polite. The same goes for LinkedIn.
