Thank you for inviting me to speak to you today. I’m really happy that the title of this event has the word social and not ‘social media’ – for brands, talking, discovering and building relationships is what it’s all about. I’d like to share some examples of how and why brands have been successful on FB
Today the web is still organized in the same way it was 30 years ago: unstructured links between pages…with algorithms telling you what you should be interested in. At Facebook we believe that by putting people, not computers at the centre of the web we can make the web more social, personalised and authentic.We don’t believe the algorithm should be at the center of the world. We think people should be. “The last decade was about search, and although this area continues to evolve and innovate, this decade will be about social, and the most important word will no longer be ’search’, it’ll be ’share’.”
The people are the message because the Internet has become the most powerful storytelling medium ever created. it’s enabled each and every one of us to tell our story and share it with everyone who matters to us.That’s the power and potential of Facebook!
Our mission is to give people the power to share and make the world more open and connected. Brands are an important part of our vision: we give a human face to communications & messaging and we can help shape a brands perception.The power of your brand is in how to unlock human potential and passions. How to encourage people to become part of your journey. To fulfill your brand purpose
The opportunities for advertisers and marketers created by social networks are the most important since the invention of TV, adding that Facebook will become “the most powerful marketing tool ever invented”, with consumers themselves acting as brand ambassadors via their engagement with the social network.
For many brands their main digital contact point is Facebook – shift from own site to FB is intentionalWhen someone becomes a fan of your brand they become your ambassador – and when this happens they will spread your word for free and much more effectively then any other advertising.
