It’s Politics & Technology Season

So I am going to be interested to see what type of traction Facebook picks up in the next quarter after their belly-flop onto prime time television via their sponsorship of the presidential debates. The various juries are still debating the degree of success, if any, that the interaction between Facebook users and the CNN news crew had in the past week. As an innocent bystander watching the evening I could only imagine how many times the question “What is Facebook?” echoed through middle America. I will give them one thing, they got their brand out there for sure, now the question becomes “How exactly can they capitalize on a bunch of confused middle-aged news watchers?” Time will tell, until then I am going to shine up my new Pownce profile because I am super cool (I actually think they sent a rater large number of invites out).
