If you haven’t seen the movie, "The Social Network" yet, the DVD came out this week…
So just do it, OK?
And if you haven’t "friended" me on Facebook yet, better hop to that as well. I’m about three or four shy of the social network’s 5,000 friend max. So any day now we’re probably going to have to find another way to consumate our friendship
I know, I know, it’s cruel but you’ll find another reason to go on living…
Speaking of payoffs, the once-mighty Kansas City Star redesigned its Web site recently many of you may have noticed. I think it looks good. And at the bottom of its home page or whatever, it sports a hip little row of trendy options for news geezers to stay abreast of the changing times.
Twitter, text alerts, mobile – even Facebook, the social network.
But for all it’s still heavy duty clout, the newspaper’s only been able to enlist a paltry 177 Facebook friends.
To put that in persepctive, even the lowly, long defuct Yugo automobile has more than 16,000 Facebookers who say they like it. And to be fair, the Star‘s Facebook page has around 2,500 folks who "like" it. That’s about half of 5,000 by my measure and a whole lot less than 16,000.
More to the point, there is some room for improvement.
Now that the Sociel Network DVD’s out, maybe the Star can snag some a few ins after they find out Facebook exists.
