Facebook has announced improvements to the comment boxes that can be embedded into other web sites. Among the new features, one of the key capabilities takes viral marketing a step further. Once an individual posts a comment on your web site, using an embedded Facebook comment box, then that individual's friends can post additional comments through Facebook - all of those comments and threads of comments are linked to your web site.

The below video from Facebook explains all the new features:

FCC & Internet

The Associated Press published an article on April 6th 2010 entitled "FCC loses key ruling on Internet 'neutrality'" regarding a recent ruling by a federal court on whether or not the FCC can require Internet service providers to provide "equal treatment to all Internet traffic flowing over their networks."

This is an interesting ruling since it now allows internet service providers to control the traffic usage across their networks and discriminate against specific web sites and content providers. Overall this ruling has put into question the FCC's ability to regulate broadband Internet.

For web designers / developers as well as content providers, this can have a tremendous impact in the coming months and years. Content that we create for our clients, such as building a web site for a local small business, could receive a lower priority going across an internet service provider's network, such as Comcast, AT&T or Verizon Communications. The end-result, in a worst case scenario, could be potential of visitors to web sites becoming frustrated because of the web site's speed. However the issue may not lie in the web site itself being slow, but rather how the visitor's internet service provider is delivering the web site over their network to the visitor.

On the other hand, "broadband providers such as Comcast, AT&T Inc. and Verizon Communications Inc. argue that after spending billions of dollars on their networks, they should be able to sell premium services and manage their systems to prevent certain applications from hogging capacity." Well, you decide.

Engage customers through FourSquare

First of all, what is FourSquare? Well its an on-line social media game that allows individuals to "check-in" to locations they visit using a mobile device (typically needing a data plan with web capabilities). This also provides the ability to keep your closest friends notified of where you are so, for example, you can meet up at a nearby coffee shop. In some ways, it also encourages individuals to get out an explore their communities to gain "badges" - which are awards for being a more active player in FourSquare.

So what does this mean for businesses? The individual who "checks-in" at a location the most frequent will become the FourSquare "Mayor" of that location. Businesses can register with FourSquare and offer discounts to whomever is the current mayor of their business.

For assistance of how to get your business connected with FourSquare and how to market this brand loyalty to your customers, contact us. This technology is quickly becoming a new popular means to interact through the Internet with your most loyal customers.
