  28. 28. It’s not totally clear what the main barriers to interaction were but researchon other Facebook campaigns suggests that:• Facebook users are typically more engaged by content that relates to themand with which they can personally identify as opposed to factual content(such as the Big Picture campaign).• Facebook users also prefer the simple and clear over the unfamiliar, lengthyand complex.Interaction and Engagement
  29. 29. The external campaign qualitative evaluation gives very valuable insights aboutthe relatively low level of interaction:• Many gay men - in particular older men - have concerns about Facebookprivacy and security.• Those who aren’t openly gay don’t want to be outed on Facebook• Others, even if they are totally comfortable with their sexuality, aren’tentirely open to talking about HIV-related topics in a public space such asFacebook.Interaction and Engagement
