The Visible Banking Page on Facebook
Visiblebankingpage151108_2The VB page now counts 150 fans.

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.
