What the hell "Bro" phs

Professionally I develop brand strategies, digital, social, traditional PR, whatever. I manage the online reputation of brands and devise ways to proactively generate positive sentiment and increase brand awareness. Blah, blah, blah.

Socially, my physical and online worlds often collide, so as I fumble my way through life, here are some of the things I spy along the way.

What type of geek are you?

Everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.

P&G begins selling beauty products through Facebook

Max Factor has become the first Procter & Gamble brand to sell directly to consumers via Facebook as the FMCG giant experiments with ecommerce initiatives.

P&G has launched an Amazon-powered application on the social network which lets people comment on and ‘like’ Max Factor products, as well as purchase them.

The move is the first time P&G has let UK consumers buy any of its brands via a social network, and is part of what the company calls “small-scale direct-to-consumer” initiatives it’s currently testing.

Nice to see P&G exploring ecommerce avenues within social media spaces. Has anyone spotted any other great examples of brands utilising such platforms to forge better relationships with consumers, or to better understand their product needs?
