Webcast: Why Facebook Investor Relations Will Fail You

Posted by AGORACOM at 7:07 AM on Thursday, March 17th, 2011

I love Facebook.  I am on Facebook.  It has done wonders for helping me maintain relationships with the hundreds of people in my life that I don’t have time to see and speak to on a regular basis.  AGORACOM is on Facebook.  We have 488 fans and it is a great way for our members or other investors on Facebook to get our info into their feed.

Facebook is a phenomenon unlike any other I have seen – and I look forward to being a part of it for years to come.

But relying on Facebook as your primary online investor relations destination is a recipe for disaster.  Contrary to what Social Media IR Experts (aka “Pretenders”) will tell you, Facebook IR will fail you.

To find out the many reasons why – and how I put my money where my mouth is – watch the presentation I gave at IR Conference 2011 in Vancouver on January 21.  It was the anchor presentation and feedback from the audience of small-cap public companies was tremendous.  I opened their eyes and know it will do the same for you.

The good news is that Facebook done correctly can be a big boost to your online investor relations campaign.  Look for that presentation to come out in about a month, or feel free to contact me at [email protected] to discuss sooner.

    Fully agree with you. People aren’t getting it though, they are asking to be harassed during their personal time on FB! Just wait ’till they IPO FB and the model turns to cash generation, it won’t be “cool” anymore and will completely die.

    Regarding public companies, nobody seems to be batting an eyelash about regulatory and compliance issues yet. When these small cap companies forced to create content start leaking info, watch out! It is only a matter of time before someone posts something they shouldn’t, be it due to rage, intoxication, whatever. Look at what happened to Chrysler a few weeks ago… disaster:
