Facebook Timeline and social marketing

Facebook has been game changer from the day one. Here again they come up with new look as Facebook timeline. Ever since its preview at f8 conference, in last September – there been lot of buzz about it. The entire digital guru’s community was busy making their predictions – as when this will be launched and what impact do they see on the people.

This timeline feature can impact massively on the brands/business Social CRM, since one can go back to day one of their post. (If the brand keeps it that way)

Facebook timeline will give great opportunity to business to use it cleverly for their branding.

Having a facebook application will engage new and will keep the loyal fans entertaining/engaging – as more they ‘talk’ more help they will do for the brand/business.

How this impacts you? – It’s cool, if you are on facebook get a new fresh look to your digital life.

Does this change your life? Probably no… but it will make your life a bit interesting
