Jesse Stay

It's always fun to see yourself on Video. :-) Thanks for the great review Beth - I'm a big fan of yours as well, and for your readers, Jason and I will even sign it for the winning entry. Good luck!

This is a very informative blog – one of the best of its kind. I have gone through all the posts but I have some doubts about some thing. Updates of this blogs are rare. Since blog needs latest info, I humly request the blog master to update this blog when ever gets time.
All other aspects are really Great. I have some own blogs in this subject – on malignancy and malignant cancers or tumors - I shall link this blog from them. I think this blog needs that as this is very informative.
And about complete cure of Cancers and malignant tumors I was simply wondering why common men like me and you can work for this/in this direction? It may be scientist’s subject, but I think we too can provide good contribution to this subject... I could see an informative guide on malignant cancers and the cure of cancer etc from following URL
http://www.helpcure.com/cancer
This site will give you a free cancer- guide which details how to cure cancers by Holistic Treatment – Only useful treatment to cure cancer completely- and also on how to care cancer as well as much information about the cancers
Thanks lot

I'd love to win the book, even though I have to admit that I'm just thrilled to find this blog. I came over from Jesse's blog (which I found through Guy Kawasaki's blog; no wonder my news reader list keeps growing!)

Our non-profit is just getting started on Facebook, and we really need some ideas. We're a religious non-profit, mainly doing mass media around the world. We're hoping to use social media to reach new donors, particularly younger ones.

Looking forward to reading all the tips!

Gardner Campbell

Put my ticket stub in the drawing bowl! Fascinating stuff, Beth. Thanks for blogging it.

How will I change the world with it? Let me count the ways:

1. Virally--transmitted by word of mouth, blogging, Twitter. Maybe I'll get lucky and interview Beth and or Jesse for a podcast. :)

2. Bibliographically--by alerting my students to this resource and showing ways it can be used in classroom projects, club discussions, and so forth.

3. Intellectually--I will learn, ponder, learn, ponder, and draw on this resource for the next stages in my own thinking, writing, and presenting.

May the best world-changer win!

Bronwyn Stuckey

I have heard you mention this book three times now and I am totally motivated to read it. As a BIG fan of Facebook, yet still intrigued by where it will take me I am very keen to open my mind to new possibilities. Many of these I see as I follow people like you Beth in my network :-)

I am also a big fan of Book Crossing http://www.bookcrossing.com/ so if I won this copy and valued it I would set it free for others to enjoy.

Does it come with annotations? I love reading other people's annotations as a way to consider another perspective on the ideas expressed!

Amy Gugig

I work at a non profit, and I can use all the help I can get explaining to the powers-that-be how to use facebook to their advantage.

I will change the world, however, by passing the book on to someone else when i'm done and let them use it as I have.

And then i'll go buy my own copy.

:)

BJ Wishinsky

I'd love to have a copy of this book for the staff at the Anita Borg Institute for Women and Technology. We've had some beginner's luck with Facebook (see my recent blog post at http://anitaborg.org/news/archive/mujeres-en-tecnologia-visits-abi/) but as an organization I don't think we've fully grokked it yet.

I am so glad that I found your site. My two sons deal with facebook and I don't know much about it. Of course, I have heard and seen the bad things on television. They are getting to the age where I can only monitor so much now. Facebook is a subject that I really need/want to know much more about. Please enter me in your drawing. I appreciate it. Thanks,Cindi

Malka Young

putting my bid in. Wondering how social networking sites can be used to build community.

Kelly

Sure! I'll take a shot!

Mathieu Plourde

I've been using Facebook since September '07 and I have mostly been doing social stuff with my friends, but I would be greatly interested in finding out way to reach out to my colleagues and students at my institution. So whether I win the book or not, I'll probably buy it anyway. Let us know when it's published!

Lisa @ Corporate Babysitter

I need this book. I recently said to a friend at lunch, "Yes, I'm on Facebook, but I just through my org up there and now I don't know what to do."

She asked if maybe contacting a college kid would help and I said, "Um, no, that's not the kind of help I need."

I want to use Facebook to get the word out about the problems with media and marketing directed at children. Education is the key to solving this problem and the first step is making people aware of the problem in the first place.

Thanks, Lisa.

My co-workers and I have started to post fundraising events to or corporate group on Facebook... need something to do on an off Thursday? Check the group events and you can find someone that needs help.

We are also big Kiva fans. Most of us are from other parts of the world and the Kiva love has been spreading though our Facebook gadgets. I went to college in Tennessee at the base of the Blue Ridge mountains. It's great to see the children of coal miners reaching across the planet to help fund loans.

But what else could I be doing? Should I be doing with this great platform? That is why I would like to have the book... to help educate my various groups how to better leverage this awesome platform!

Jessica

I'll use the book to help young moms know that they are actually not too old for Facebook and moms of tweens and teens know about this medium so they can supervise their kids' online usage.

Thanks for your site!

Barely under the deadline....

I would love this book because i'm trying to envision new ideas to work with Facebook during disasters. I'm the Disaster Public Affairs manager for the American Red Cross and new to facebook personally. My colleague, Wendy Harman, is our social media guru but I want to learn personally and help her increase the Red Cross presence in social media -- espeically during times of disaster. I think Facebook would be a good resource for sharing information on disaster preparedness and real-time disaster updates.. but i don't know where to begin!

Rob Cottingham

I intend to use Facebook to create an application that lets people track book giveaway contests so they don't find themselves entering 90 minutes after the deadline.
