Why Should You Turn Your Site into a Facebook Page?

Jesse describes himself as a Brick Builder, CEO, Blogger, Father, Entrepreneur, and Published Author. The interviewer thinks of him as a coder and developer. He spoke at the Next Level Hawaii event last weekend about the many changes going on at Facebook.

Facebook just released a whole set of HTML tags that will make your website become a part of the Facebook network. More than 500,000,000 people are active on the popular site at least once per day. There are an insane number of people and brands coming together, so you really need to turn your site into a Facebook page. You’ll be doing yourself a disservice and miss out on huge opportunities to talk about your brand.

If you head over to the developers area of Facebook, you can easily add your web site into the mix. Facebook will open up more and more over time. People express concerns about the entire Internet being Facebook-driven. Jesse doesn’t see that as their intent. He says that the Facebook team is working hard to make the web more open and more social.

With the advent of the OpenGraph protocol, it’s easier than ever before to make connections that can help you do the indexing. They’re using the closed element to make things on the Internet more open, if that makes sense.

What are your thoughts about all of the recent changes at Facebook? Do you agree that these are exciting changes with huge possibilities, or are you afraid the FB team is becoming too big for their own britches?

I have to thank Bruce and his team at Hawaii Aloha for helping me once again make the trip down to paradise.
