  3. 3. [overview - college] <ul><li>Facebook is an online directory that connects people through social networks at colleges and universities. Facebook enables students to search for people at their school, find students who share similar interests or courses, look up friends of friends, network, and visualize their social network via photos. </li></ul><ul><li>Launched at Harvard University by a student in February 2004, Facebook has quickly become the most accessed site from hundreds of colleges/universities across the country </li></ul><ul><li>Facebook Consumer Profile </li></ul><ul><li>60% are female and 40% are male </li></ul><ul><li>90% are students, 18-24 years old </li></ul><ul><li>They spend over $85 billion per year </li></ul><ul><li>They collectively belong to 157 million groups </li></ul><ul><li>50% of our users are not registered at MySpace </li></ul><ul><li>15,000 new members register EVERY DAY </li></ul>
  4. 4. [overview – high school] <ul><li>High School Update: </li></ul><ul><li>In September, 2005 Facebook launched a second version of its site for High School students. The site was launched virally at every high school in the country and requires an invitation to join from a freshman member of the college site. </li></ul><ul><li>So far, the High School site has accumulated 375,000 members and grows by approximately 7,000 per day. Currently, there is no advertising on the High School site but it is expected that advertising will be permitted beginning in 2006. </li></ul><ul><li>This proposal is based on the current college site and its members, however, if the high school site is accepting advertising in time for this campaign, we can certainly discuss having the advertising spread across both the high school and college sites </li></ul>
  5. 5. [how it works] <ul><li>Students, alumni, faculty, and staff with .edu email addresses create and maintain a profile for themselves which includes: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Contact information </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Pictures </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Personal information – class year, gender, age, interests and affiliations, etc. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Course information - class schedule </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Groups which reflect students’ interests and affiliations </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Once a profile is created, users may browse the social net at their school and other Facebook schools via various searches. Users may search for classmates in their principles of economics course, other students at their university interested in tennis, students at all universities interested in chess, etc. </li></ul><ul><li>Privacy controls allow users to determine who accesses their personal information, courses, friends, etc. and to block certain email addresses from viewing personal information. </li></ul>
  6. 6. [why Facebook?] <ul><li>There are 7 million four-year college students in the United States with an estimated purchase power exceeding $85 Billion. College students have money in their pockets for your products and services. In 2004, students spent: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>$21 Billion on restaurants/food </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>$9 Billion on automobiles </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>$5 Billion on clothing </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>$4 Billion on phones </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>$40 Billion on combined other amenities </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Students are the consumers of today and tomorrow, building brand loyalties that last a lifetime. </li></ul><ul><li>Enables target specific messaging based on students specific lifestyle. </li></ul><ul><li>Facebook is NOT an advertising heavy site. Each page only has 1-2 advertisements and therefore acts as a clear brand building tool </li></ul>
  7. 7. [recent press] &quot;Facebook is now the top-ranking Web site for the hard-to-reach college demographic&quot; --San Jose Mercury News, August 29, 2005 “ A glance at growth stats shows that as membership spreads — faster than strep-throat bugs at a spin-the-bottle session — the service is becoming a popular extension of real life at campuses across the country.” --L.A. Times, August 28, 2005 “ a virtual bible for campus socializing and networking” --Boston Globe, Sept 26,2005 “ So enticing is the network that many students spend hours each day roaming its online halls. ‘Let's face it, we are addicts,’ says the founding message of a group on the network called Facebook's Addict. ‘When we should be studying we are looking up info on our friends. When we should be eating we are checking on the new groups. And when we should be sleeping we are on Facebook. Maybe we have a problem, maybe not.’ --Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, September 19, 2005 “ It becomes part of your daily routine. It's e-mail, the news, the weather, Facebook.” --Associated Press, July 2, 2005 “ It conquered college America instantly” - LATimes.com
