Facebook, consider a social networking website like friendster, which able to connect a lot people at cyberspace. I always heard people said facebook is a good tools for business marketing and advertising too, and I have no idea how it works.

MIRC’s Tech Nite, Facebook talk are crap
I do attend few talk about Facebook at MCA ICT Resource Center (MIRC)’s Tech Nite, which organize once a month, but seriously I did not learn any thing from there, they are talking crap there, just talk about how to use facebook, like I learn how to use friendster during my secondary school.

How I use Facebook to expend my network, My tips
I still did not get any tips from how to use facebook to market my web hosting business, but I do have some tips to share on how to expand my social network community.

Ifacebook user have a habit on collecting email address recently, I collect all email address from those “forward email” send by my friend, currently I have few hundred thousand of email address and I collect all this email address for my web hosting business email marketing in future.

With all this email address, I start to invite all of them to join my facebook, as part of my community. Guess what? I send out 1000 invitation email and my facebook’s account now have 200++ people add me as their friend. This is how I expend my community in facebook.

Ok, after getting this tips, let talk about more efficient advertising at facebook. Facebook do have CPC (Cost Per Click) advertising like Google Adwords. To advertise at Facebook, you just require a credit card while you create your ads campaign.
