This month we're looking at Facebook Pages. We've got talks from two of the most successful UK case studies of successful Facebook Page use; the agency VCCP will be coming in to speak about their Compare the Meerkat campaign and how they reached almost half a million fans for a fictional character promoting a financial comparison website; and ITV will come in to discuss how they've used Facebook pages to promote all of their major TV shows, and the lessons they've learnt about using social media effectively. We'll also be looking at what's possible for applications in Facebook pages, including running applications through tabs, applications which encourage users to add tabs to their own fan pages, and publishing content to the stream.
We'll also have the usual free beer, pizza and networking!
