I’m on Facebook — Now What??? Ready For Preorders!

January 17th, 2008

We’re making good progress on THE BOOK! We now have a cover (see below), we’ve finished the second round of editing, we have the foreword and afterword and dozens of endorsements. The feedback has been phenomenal – people put in hours to give us pointers and quotes.


Jesse Stay has been a delight to work with throughout the entire project. Jesse knows his Facebook stuff and is very busy consulting and developing, so I feel quite privileged to have been able to team up with him for this.

I should mention that this is not a career book – it’s a more holistic view, helping you get professional or business value out of Facebook. I figure there are plenty of people who read this blog who are trying to unravel this social network mess – just to let you know, I don’t plan on doing any more books on any other social networks. LinkedIn and Facebook are good enough for me :)

You can preorder THE BOOK at the publisher’s page here.

You can also sign up for the very generous affiliate program on the same page.

Of course there is a “blog behind the book,” just like with the LinkedIn book blog.

Here’s the cover… kind of the same and kind of different than what you saw on the LinkedIn book:

Facebook book and Facebook guide for professionals

  1. I’m looking forward to your book. So far Facebook is a long way second for me to LinkedIn. I use these sites as a business/HR tool and Facebook seems to have far to much rubbish getting in the way for me. I have an open mind though!

  2. Name says:

    Facebook is really having some more privacy issues in the press.,141607-c,privacy/article.html
    “Facebook’s data protection policies are to be investigated by the U.K.’s Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), after a user complained that they were unable to fully delete their profile after terminating their account.”

    Reading Facebooks TOS and privacy policy was a deal killer before, but they just keep getting worse and worse.
