To me its like this:
Facebook is where most of the people are (at the moment). So, we build a page there and get “likers”. Likers, as far as we can accept the psycological interpretation of what they are, are people who LIKE our page right? lol. So, that makes them the BEST prospects for our product or service if we are a business. However, we are hand tied to be able to communicate with them.
The only way that I can think of, is to create an app to ask them for their name and email… that way, I at least get some kind of list.
Is there any other way? I havent thought of one yet. It perplexes me, that facebook builds all kinds of communication mechanisms, yet actually builds a brick wall between me and my greatest prospects. In fact, on the most part you cant even see who they are (unless theyre your friends). :O
Something is amiss. Do we accept that this is how it is, or is facebook trying to cook up their messaging service behind the scenes? I did hear such a rumor.
