Facebook: IM AM SO SO SORRY!

So we all know by now that Facebook decided to change its Terms of Service, allowing them to pilfer all our content and data. As our right to want to delete our accounts before all our pictures and all other UGC gets owned, Facebook is on bended knee before we pull the plug. When deleting an account on Facebook, we now get an apology note. Awww Facebook you really shouldn’t have….

“This was a mistake that we have now corrected. You own the information you put on Facebook and you control what happens to it. We are sorry for the confusion.”

Not bad for a last ditch effort, but all is not forgotten. Personally, I love you Facebook so I will forgive, but not soon forget.

See the full story .

Let me know what you think!

Something to learn from…

Facebook for Charity

Here’s a timely article. Using Facebook to promote social responsibility, some youngsters create facebook cause to benefit the family who’s house was destroyed in the crash of Continental Airline’s flight 3407 earlier this month.

We surely understand the impact social media and social networking can have on philanthropic causes – as we begin planning stages for our newest social media project with the United Way of Massachusetts Bay and Merrimack Valley. We’re helping to promote their Community Support Fund and Mass2-1-1. Join their facebook cause and definately watch this video – it’s quite moving.

Pam & George had a fantastic meeting with the team at Yankee Spirits.

Blogging has a bright future with Facebook

Does what you say matter? Apparently it does on Facebook. NetworkedBlogs, an app only launched last year to the Facebook platform, is now adding 500 new blogs a day. Half MyBlogLog, half RSS reader, the application lets users add their blog, favorite the blogs of their friends, and click though the latest headlines. Most importantly, the app brings blogs to the more mainstream Facebook audience.
