The CaseCamp Facebook Experiment
Last week’s Facebook announcement of "Pages" and "Social Ads" was hotly debated across the Web. There’s no doubt that finding a sustainable balance between the needs of community and of marketers is the most significant challenge facing communications today.
CaseCamp is a place for experimentation – so we’ve created a Facebook profile for CaseCamp 6 where we’ll be running social ads all this week, and we’re going to encourage debate at CaseCamp on what worked and what didn’t.
Become a Fan of CaseCamp if you’d like to participate and have the ads present in your own social graph to get a first hand sense of how your audiences are going to feel when you ask them to become fans of your brand.
See you November 20th! And feel free to get in touch by email or phone (416.566.2322) if you’d like to chat.
