Since I have created my Visible Banking page on facebook, I’ve always tried to find the best way to REWARD my fans, or shall I say now “the community of facebook users who like my page”: from the get go, I made sure to post most of my recent video interviews or video reviews on facebook first (and only a few weeks or months later on dailymotion). Please note that my new VB140 videos are only available on the VB page.
Indeed I believe there is limited value using a facebook page as a mere carbon copy of one’s twitter account or blog. I also don’t want to pollute my blog with a few short daily posts with my initial comments and reactions on new social media initiatives.
This is the reason why I started to post short wall posts on regular basis. I invite facebook users interested in social media in banking, financial services and insurance, to like my page to keep track of my updates. Once in a while, I will also publish a post listing my recent comments on facebook in my new Visible Banking Facebook Flash series. I hope you will enjoy reading those posts.
Please do not hesitate to share your feedback and help me improve the format of this new series.
