Facebook Comes To AiMA

10/24/2006

Aima_logo_3 What are you doing Wednesday night? If you're in Atlanta or near Atlanta and have any interest in social media the AiMA (Atlanta Interactive Marketing Assoc.) meeting is the place to be and be seen.

Mike Murphy, Chief Revenue Officer, at Facebook is the event speaker.

Facebook launched in February 2004, and the website now has over 9 million registered users across more than 40,000 regional, work, college and high school networks. According to comScore, Facebook is the seventh-most trafficked site on the web and is the number one photo-sharing site.

However, I really want to know the story behind opening the doors to the world and Facebook's strategy for growing the business now that students are packing their virtual packpacks because it's not so cool to hang with your parents.

Facebook is definitely a powerful relationship marketing tool. I am a college student/entrepreneur myself. I believe that facebook is so successful because my generation came of age with the internet. We love to use the internet as a facet for relating to our peers. We trust the internet (unlike our parents' generation who always asks "Is that safe to do online.").

As someone from the cold war generation, thank goodness for sites like Facebook that are warming up our future.

Amazing, the fact that sites like Facebook and MySpace are having the success they have had is awesome. Anyone in insurance sales, or any sales for that matter, must take advantage of these incredible tools!

"According to comScore, Facebook is the seventh-most trafficked site on the web and is the number one photo-sharing site."

This seems a bit off to me. MySpace now has over a 100 million users, and most such tracking services put MySpace in the top 3-5 sites.

Doesn't seem like the difference would be that great, and Facebook's 9 million users post more photos than MySpace's 100 million?

Again, maybe they do, just doesn't seem to add up to me. And yes Toby, I know you're not claiming to be a website traffic expert, just wondering outloud, could be that one of these sites aren't reporting accurate numbers.

Or it could be that I've got too much time on my hands to care ;)
