Checking-out the Facebook Success Summit 2011 -- a bit surprised to see Joe Pistell was 1st to sign-up....
hahaa JQ... I'm so miss-understood! 

It simple. I Like FaceBook but it fails the DISC test (Does It Sell Cars).

FB does not sell cars (or real estate, or furniture, or... ANYTHING).  It was as plain as daylight to me from day one. That's how I got my reputation as anti-FaceBook.

Now.. if I could only get you to see the light on Google Ads ;-)

I saw a fact from facebook that stated Saturday morning was the best time to post a message.  I wonder where she is getting her stats?

See Dan Zarrella:

His video at Harvard with a "Unicorns and Rainbows" theme will bore most folks, but it reveals his love of stats coupled with his amazing creativity.

I would disagree completely on the fb disc comment. Like anything, it's not if you use it, it's how you use, real videos, how to - Bluetooth, nav, tpms, etc. I have salespeople every week tell me that they have customers who came due to a vid, post, referral from fb.
