The Visible Banking Page on Facebook
Facebook-VisibleBankingPage-HP14122008The VB page now counts 188 fans. Thank you all for spreading the word.

I believe the success of any Social Media initiative is linked with your ability to engage with your community and urge them to contribute.

It is critical to REWARD your members, your fans. Rewarding could mean many things such as producing exclusive content, or giving visibiliy / exposure to your contributors. I intend to do both on the Visible Banking Page.
