1. Facebook

Facebook is, by numbers alone, the most popular social networking site today, with
more than 400 million registered users. It’s a site that lets people share updates, photos,
videos, articles, and more with “Friends,” who they have to approve to be in their
network. Businesses and organizations can create “Fan Pages,” which other Facebook
users can become ans o, just like they do sports teams, musicians, and celebrities.

What’s good about it?
Te user base is huge, and that means many o your customers
and constituents are already there.

It’s easy to use.
Multimedia content can be integrated with your prole.
You can separate your personal and proessional use.

What’s not so good about it?
You have limited ability to customize your Fan Page.
Fan Pages do not have email alerts; you will have to check to
see i there is any activity.
It’s a closed environment — only Facebook users can become
ans or riends o your business or organization.
