Facebook addicts – itsReal

So who like me stayed up to watch the cnn LIVE and facebook OBAMA collab the other night…. stay up, i mean i am in singapore so the event was in the middle of the night here… to me it was a huge turning point for social media and traditional media collaboration yet not even CNN or facebook are riding the wave of an excellent example of right event right news network and right social media platform – facebook !

FacebookSo why are CNN & FACEBOOK keeping low on what a marketing feat they pulled off. Twitter has heralded how tweets went thru the hemisphere as did other social platforms, am i working to much to have noticed anything.

I titled ths post facebook addicts – i did so because this could well become even more of a facebook addiction in times and events to come, sitting here in the middle of the night as were some of my friends, we were able to IM each other and keep engaged with proceedings as if we might even be at the actual event. Am i taking that a bit far… I don’t think so. Yes it truly was a moment in history that will never be repeated but just imagine if this technology had been available when Lady Di’s funeral happened so long ago…

So I would like to know what CNN & FACEBOOK have planned for engaging us again… if anyone knows or has some insights on this topic please do share…
