San Diego, Calif. - With Facebook, industry insiders and followers can easily engage in two-way communication with companies of any size in a way they have never been able to before. The communication can be seen by anyone, and if a good question is asked, then no further response is needed.
However, not everyone is convinced about Facebook. I personally like Facebook, so you'll understand the side I'm taking. The communication is instant and public, a company has the ability to post photos, videos, links to any webpage, get customer feedback, roll-out new products, offer holiday cheer and even provide comic relief. Facebook followers can then provide a diverse range of comments from serious to amusing, and sometimes even the inappropriate. Fortunately on Facebook, any company can block anyone for any reason.
Even if you don't use Facebook for personal use it's an excellent way for corporations to communicate with their customers. An example of this is a San Diego based company which relied heavily on their customer service hotline to answer customer questions; they then created a Facebook page and started answering questions on Facebook, their customer service phone line virtually stopped ringing. Facebook has changed the way corporations communicate.
