Facebook Walls are NOT for Marketing.
There is a disturbing trend I have noticed over the last couple of weeks or so on Facebook. Maybe its just me but it seems to be happening with other folks who have a reasonably large number of friends on Facebook. Whatever the case is, it ticked me off to the point I changed my Facebook profile settings so that no one can post on my Wall – friends or otherwise.
The problem that I have noticed is that some of my Facebook friends seem to have decided that posting marketing messages on my Facebook Wall is a good idea. What?! Why would they even think this is a good idea seeing that they could be easily “unfriended” for this not so friendly action.
The thing is, one of the most effective ways of marketing on Facebook is to simply buy Facebook Ads as well as building and managing a decent Facebook Fan Page. Its not rocket science – just do it, right? Its quite simple really – Facebook Walls are NOT for Marketing!
