    Well because social networking is the future of marketing (viral marketing at it’s best!)AND it is a great way to keep up with industry events! I use mine strictly for industry stuff, everything is hidden and private not only to protect myself but also to protect the industry people that I deal with :)

    I only add people that I know I can trust and only my friends can see what is going on in my life :)

    You can make private groups to market your sites etc.. the benefits are up to you and how you use Facebook to your advantage :) There are ways to market and advertise if you search and learn Facebook.

    If I wanted a personal one I could do that as well but who has the time..lol

    Linked In is another alternative that is more narrowly focused on networking between professionals.

    Yep, I sure waste daily time on it. LOL

    Great points bonustreak! Very well said.

    The name Facebook seems to pop up on the news and other places a lot lately and I feel that it’s an awesome tool.

    I agree…

    I have 2 profiles (1 personal and 1 work). It’s amazing how many affiliates I have come to ‘meet’ that I’d never met before just by getting a facebook profile, as well as other affiliate managers.
    And I’ve found so many people that I went to school with that I lost along the way, or that I’ve worked with years ago.

    I’d recommend it for business… Especially if you are involved in industries other than ours.. It’s awesome for advertising. I can’t tell you how many ads I’ve clicked on.

    And the groups function is awesome too… Can’t say enough about it…

    Plus, I know one of the guys working on Facebook and they have big things coming soon that may benefit us :)
    It’s only about 1/10th the size of what it will be.

    If you have time to spend, yes join facebook.
    If you can monetize the traffic, please join.

    Otherwise, stay away. Too much timeconsuming for your own good :)

    *I´m ironic*

    EDIT:
    100% on the nail:

    Agreed that people using facebook don’t expect to be marketted to – and tolerance is low.

    It seems to be a place for tweenies and teenies to spend their time frantically pinging away at their friends, and trying to collect the greatest nubmer of contacts.

    Basically, if you send hundreds (or thousands) of texts a month to your friends that say nothing more intelligent than “what ya up to ?” then facebook is for you.

    :tongue:

    Hopefully we will sit next to each other again :hattip:

    Regarding the little mis understanding in the Final table I hope the relevant parties see it, no hard feelings guys, beers in London on me :wink-wink

    And sorry, didn’t mean to distract the Facebook discussion, which reminds me, I should update my Facebook profile about the ASOP! :happydanc

    Dont forget to join the CAP User Group at Facebook. We also have groups at LinkedIn and Bebo.

    Its a great way to network with colleague and friends from around the industry.

    Without offending anyone, people who add me that are just after a bigger friends list drive me crazy (especially those I went to school with who deserted me and now add me like nothing has happened, then never say a word).
    I only add people I know to my personal facebook, and only add people who I know are affiliates or aff managers to my work one… and the ones on my personal profile that don’t talk/message me get deleted :)

    My main reason for using Facebook is for the photos – For example after Barcelona at least 8 seperate albumns were uploaded and I wouldn’t have seen those otherwise.

    I have heard with the adverts you do get clicks but it is 1 to a ridciulous number of impressions – Jackpotjoy is all over it at the moment with Deal or No Deal for my demographic (over 25, male, UK)

    Also – Check out these stats – Impressive!!

    An average of 250,000 new registrations per day since Jan. 2007

    The fastest growing demographic is those 25 years old and older

    More than 65 billion page views per month

    More than 14 million photos uploaded daily

    Canada has the most users outside of the United States, with more than 7 million active users

    Remaining top 10 countries in order of active users (outside of the U.S., Canada and UK): Australia, Turkey, Sweden, Norway, South Africa, France, Hong Kong
