Facebook Fan Page vs. Personal Profile

Yes! There is a difference between a Facebook profile and a Facebook Fan Page.

Facebook profiles are for people.

Legacy vs. currency: our lives online

I’ve been attending South by Southwest Interactive (SXSW) this week and  eating, sleeping, and breathing internet and social media.  Yea, I know…that’s nothing new. But the fact that I’ve been doing it (well…all but the sleeping part anyway) with thousands of other people is. SXSW brings people from all over the world together to learn and share about the some of the things that make us tick.
