Step by Step Facebook

I got hooked up at facebook because my editor wanted me to write a book about it. And here it this, my second book, Step by Step Facebook. Already in store from 20th January 2009 :p This book talks about how you can use facebook to leverage your networks of friends, relations, and clients. You can use it personally as your usual social networking site with more interesting features that makes you addicted. Or, you can use it professionally as a bridge to your clients, making your own community, and building your brand. You even can use facebook ads to promote your product or service with flexibility in terms of the cost. Paid it by cpm or per clicks.

This is book also reviewed how facebook revolutionized the world of social networking by barking in into new marketing ideas and open access that allowed other people (like you and me) to create applications on their platform, FBML and make money out of it. Even Barack Obama use it to revolutionized the way to do a presidency campaign. It a success indeed since now Obama is the president of USA.

Thanks for the complement Pin. I tried to make the book different from other books that were on the same subject and hope it will give people a different view about social networking sites especially facebook. Not just using it for fun, but for the benefits that comes with it and also realize the danger from “opening” your private information on the internet.
