"get something back from Facebook" - by Michal Konrad Owsiak on 06-AUG-2011

Facebook like portals are based on community – if there were no people willing to devote their time for it, Facebook wouldn’t exist. Question rises – am I able to get something back from Facebook? Vander Veer claims that it’s possible. By describing various features of Facebook explains how to utilize them in order to achieve certain goals. I would argue whether title of the book should state “Doing Business” thou. In my opinion this is just a little trick to get peoples’ attention.

I am not Facebook fan at all, that’s why I am not aware of it’s features. I was looking for a book that could shade some light on this topic and was condense at the same time. In this term “Doing Business …” is just fine. After reading section two you can get the feeling of what Facebook is about. If you need brief overlook of most of Facebook features – that’s fine. When it comes doing business (section one), I don’t fully agree with author. I don’t think that creating Facebook resume is a good idea. I think standing out of the crowd would be better idea. Facebook page with links to your personal web site – fine. Moving your resume into Facebook – nope, thanks. In general, I have found what I was looking for. Would I recommend this book? If you don’t know Facebook yet, I think the price of this book makes it a good deal to get it and see what’s behind one of the most recognized logos.
