This week I am going to blog about a topic that is actually related to my Tweet. I quoted a site called http://www.webnox.com/viral_marketing/social_networking/ and they are talking about how buying an ad, such as a banner on a social networking/media site will be viewed my the masses. The only thing is, if most people are like me, I see that as spam. Facebook recently, now I am not sure if I have a virus on my computer or something and it is just me, but on my Facebook page, ad are in the news feed, when I click on a picture, and off to the side. They are also on every day sites like Peru for instance. On like one page a word is highlighted on the sign in page for the online library, and it looks like a link, but when you hover over it, it is an ad and if you click on it, it will direct you to that page that has NOTHING to do with PSC.
These are just some of the things that bother me and I do not know if it bothers other people. I do not want things popping up randomly on my Facebook, or even on the side panels. I feel that it is more a bother than an ad.
Like Evans talks about in our book, ask your customer how you can improve, ask them if they notice the ads or view them as spam? Ask them if they prefer your recent searches coming up on the sidebars on Facebook. See what you can do as a company to help your employees and see what they want out of you!
