Facebook News

Executive's Guide to Facebook: Best of the WebFacebook is rapidly becoming one of the premier advertising, promotion and news delivery platforms, so here we cull some of the most interesting stories about Facebook that are relevant to executives and enterprises. Since the platform is so dominant, I also focus on Facebook-the-company as well as its tools, features and policies. Since Guide to Facebook is grounded in advising brands and individuals in using Facebook to develop relationships and profits, that ethos carries over to these links as well.

This page is often updated several times per day. Feel free to use it as a filter to select and share items that relate to Facebook-driven innovation at companies and government agencies–as well as individuals who are using Facebook creatively and effectively.
