Be A Fan

Football doesn’t really do it for me, and I could care less about the NBA.  What turns me on is the success of others in the business world–Innovative, current, profitable companies–That’s what I like to follow.

Most recently, I have become a major fan of the folks over at Facebook.    Today, I attended a little seminar presented by the Kansas City American Marketing Association, Hallmark and VML.  Facebooks Director of Marketing & Sales, Midwest territory was the keynote speaker at the event.  Brad Keown delivered a ton of relevant information to both individuals and businesses.  Here are a few highlights:

  • 10 Million added every day
  • 63 Million users U.S.
  • 900 People employed at Facebook
  • CEO is 24 Years old

  • Facebook is 2nd most blogged site behind Google
  • 52,000 Apps on Facebook
