I’ve commented before on Facebook not being that suitable for business use, especially compared to LinkedIn.  But even though I don’t use Facebook much and I’m probably several standard deviations away from the age of the average user, it did me a good turn this week.  I updated my profile saying I was going to London and was pinged by several friends to have drinks or dinner.  A couple of them were attending the OPA (Online Publishers Association) conference, and we were able to grab dinner.  I was also called by former Alacra CFO Mike Millar, who met me after work actually wearing a tie.   I should have taken a picture…
Now I’m off to San Francisco for SIIA’s NetGain conference where Alacra Book is up for a Codie Award.
