I was going through this
Facebook Offers a Ready-Made Marketing Platform

I felt like sharing this with those not yet started with facebook, I am not saying you have to start with facebook, why? If you go through this you will understand. But its right time to start with facebook.

If you are in hurry just go through slide no 43 to 56 (especially 52nd)

Thanks for reading

      Yes agreed but the important thing about the slide show is - what matters is "strategy" rather than platform you use for advertising. So think of strategy before starting.

    I found out an interesting thing about Facebook the other day. Basically of theri $140m profit only $40m comes from advertising revenue, the rest comes from selling its members personal information. If you read their terms they can modify, use or sell any information you supply.

    Most other Web 2.0 sites are the same, for example I heard of one girl who took a photo of a plane taking off at Heathrow and posted it on her Flickr acocunt. They sold the photo for $300K and the next time she saw the photo it was on a billboard .... she sued and lost

      Thats other face of being too public, so try to avoid those which are worth millions

        $300K for a photo? Why not just take their own?

      Holy smokes!
      I'm guilty of NOT reading most TOS especially social bookmarking sites.
      When I sign up for them, I always seem to be too much in a hurry and just want to get signed up and get on with it.

      It really does pay to take the time and read all the fine print at those places.

      I would be so depressed if that happened to me...300k for one picture...now where's my camera?
