WalMart would have been hit on any social media site because there are organized groups arrayed against them
its not FB per se that is the problem - its
more an issue of understanding what your vocal constituency is saying, thinking, discussing.

Second question - is having 6600 people a good number
If you had a national email campaign that generate those numbers - you'ld be fired.

I recognize this is a new medium - but at what point do you stand back and let someone else taking the bleeding edge?

Cheers

Good point.

As for the 6600 people, it's hard to compare national email campaigns to facebook.

As you say its such a new medium, who knows what is a good number of people? Granted people like Colbert can get over a million people in just over a week but it's Walmart so, where do you set the bar?

(I have been unable to relocate that group so I guess it might not have been so successful after all...)
