Performance based advertising is the next big thing
Isn't that what G calls "smart pricing"?
no, smartpricing is mentioned by MrFewkes:
Current Ad Model - I pay ad network (goofle say) and get shafted due to silly high costs.
Facebook is not "the next big thing", it is the next step in dumbing down the society.
>> Does Facebook have a strong e-commerce future to leverage from this ? If so , how ?
shri: Merger with Amazon. Imagine the combination of the two "databases" and reach / frequency.
Why would Amazon in their right mind decide to do something stupid like that, shoot their spectacular conversions in the foot by buying tons of worthless traffic?
BillyS: BTW - large companies are starting to block employees from FB, that's not a good long-term trend.
frontpage: By ignoring this market and to act utterly dismissive of it, you undercut your future market.
What market? :) Look at profit numbers for Facebook (discount farmville as it can't be monetized except for branding). If there was actually a potential market in there, somewhere, people behind zuckerbergerberger would find it and sell it to everyone already. the only market in there is future burger king customers.
What I have noticed with regards to successful advertising on facebook is that small businesses have success by treating facebook the same way they would treat real world social interactions.
People usually don't hang around with bunch of sales guys (unless they are in sales themselves). In real world social interactions I usually show salesmen the door.
