How journalists can make use of Facebook Pages - Vadim Lavrusik, Facebook Journalist Program Manager | Brand & Content Curation | Scoop.it
The Facebook News Feed is essentially a social newspaper. With it, you’re able to read and discover news shared by your friends, journalists, and media organizations you like. The personalized news stream includes everything from news about your friends’ lives to their reactions to a news article. It’s not only what is being shared, but who is sharing it that’s important.

Facebook is not "the new Internet"

In recent months, the question about Facebook is the new internet, has been raised by more and more. My answer is no. Why? When the monopoly tendencies are too strong, both the competitors, customers and users are searching for and finding new solutions and behaviors. From the competition side, the battle is already well underway.

Facebook Wants to be the Barrel -- and We're the Fish | Social Media Today

Facebook Wants to be the Barrel -- and We're the Fish | Social Media Today | Brand & Content Curation | Scoop.it
I’m less concerned about authenticity that I am about Facebook’s being closed off from the rest of the web and search engine indexing robots. That doesn’t necessarily kill authenticity. But it it does hurt your ability to manage your own messaging, just as it assumes you only benefit by communicating with people you know. That might be OK when you’re a kid. But in the real world it’s unwise to put all your communication eggs into one basket. Or barrel.

Will Facebook replace company Web sites? | Deep Tech - CNET News | Brand & Content Curation | Scoop.it
The prospect of Facebook becoming powerful enough to make a sort of parallel Web inside its own walled garden is no doubt fearful in some ways. Sure, the social-networking site is embedded increasingly deeply into people's lives, but relying on it for customer communications means subordinating a key part of a businesses' operations to a middleman that has shown no shortage of ambition.

The end result is that we have governed, monitored content that isn’t curated. It’s just there. Facebook continues to take everything you give it, but provide little in return. It’s time for an intervention, and it’s beyond time for Facebook to stop biting the hand that feeds it.

When it comes to journalists using social media, Twitter has been the go-to platform for real-time reporting.

Almost every product or service has some small community of users – mind you, not fans – somewhere on the net. The difference is that they haven’t built a community around your (or any) brand, but around their needs/personal or professional interests and needs. Have you thought of the best and most authentic way to reach out to them without merely spamming them with an offer or information?
