@BigFuel and @JerryRizzo Talk #NewFacebook

Standard

In the wake of Facebook’s pre and post f8 platform design changes, New York based social media and branded content company Big Fuel had posed a few questions for their Twitter followers.  I’ve been actively engaging with Big Fuel the past couple of days and exchanging views about the Facebook changes and what impact it will have.  In a short amount of time we covered topics from consumer behavior to the affects it will have on the music industry.

A BIG thanks to Big Fuel for responding and prompting thought provoking dialogue.

Here’s the convo…

@bigfuel
 We want to hear your reactions to the #NewFacebook newsfeed. Good? Bad? Plain old evolution of tech? Let us know!

JerryRizzo

@jerryrizzo @bigfuel I wouldn’t call it an evolution of #tech, but rather an evolution of how we share our lives publicly on the social web. #Facebook

 

bigfuel

@bigfuel @JerryRizzo Great point, how so?

 

 

JerryRizzo

@jerryrizzo @bigfuel Let’s face it, the engagement on Facebook is unparalleled and increasing daily. The changes are simply a response to it.

 

JerryRizzo

@jerryrizzo @bigfuel Some users believe Facebook makes changes just to do it. These users don’t realize change is determined by how they use Facebook.

 

bigfuel

@bigfuel @JerryRizzo EXCELLENT response, Jerry. Would you say the initial frustration is more of a reaction to the learning period than the changes?

 

JerryRizzo

@jerryrizzo @bigfuel That could be it, but who are they kidding? They’ve been invested in the site for years. It’s not a desire, it’s a necessity.

@bigfuel How do you think the #NewFacebook profiles are going to affect consumer behavior on Facebook?
JerryRizzo

@jerryrizzo @bigfuel Can you say brand ambassadors? Open graph beta is going to allow us to share favorite brands, bands and activities in real time.

 

bigfuel

@bigfuel @JerryRizzo Definitely! Do you think that Facebook’s changes are going to make the music industry finally re-invent its business model?

 

JerryRizzo

@jerryrizzo @bigfuel I can’t really say. I’m not familiar with the model and the relationships that drive it. If you mean shift to digital, then yes.

 

bigfuel

@bigfuel @JerryRizzo Shift to digital has been a point of friction in recent years, especially with record companies trying to control flow of $

 

bigfuel

@bigfuel @JerryRizzo But now that music consumption and social media are so closely intertwined, record companies are forced to find a working model

 

JerryRizzo

@jerryrizzo @bigfuel I think that shift has been gradual though. I think #NewFacebook will just be another motivator for more shift and repositioning.

@jerryrizzo
 @bigfuel Lots of dimensions to this plight. I couldn’t even begin to forecast it’s outcome. I’ll be enjoying free tunes in the meantime!
bigfuel

@bigfuel @JerryRizzo Us too! Wish there was a way for an entire company to share tunes on Facebook…we’ve all got great/eclectic taste in music!
