    The Facebook spiel was okay. I expect it was beneficial to those who were unaware of the concept of advertising on Facebook. I mostly heard a sales pitch i.e. how Facebook wants you to contribute to their advertising revenue.

    It may be more productive to bring in someone who is already, successfully, using Facebook, and also to break it into sessions (i.e. beginner, advanced).

    It was a great presentation by Brad Keown about using the Facebook FAN Pages to create social media impressions for small businesses.

    Since I was not familiar with marketing on facebook at all, it was a good introduction.
