SSC Facebook: Marcia Marcia Marcia, etc.


With all of this talk about channels, focuses (foci) and conversation, the elephant in the room is the Social Source Commons Facebook page. Kind of the Jan Brady compared to the Marcia that is the Aspiration Facebook page, our SSC Facebook page just doesn’t get much play. While the Aspiration FB page is full of comments, likes, participation and joy and/or happiness, the SSC FB page is rather lifeless.

This could be for a lot of reasons: The same community may be on the Aspiration FB page and already finds its value there or the SSC FB page has too few “Like”-ers to get going or maybe I’m just not putting enough love into the SSC FB page. Maybe SSC users just don’t feel a strong need to have a place for conversations and community. One thing is for sure, however, the SSC Facebook page isn’t delivering enough value for its community. So the question becomes, what is the SSC Facebook page’s “value proposition”? What is its reason for being?

This is where you come in.

What do you think the SSC Facebook page should focus on (e.g. tool discussions, polls, etc.)? Are you a “Like”-er of both the Aspiration Facebook page and the Social Souce Commons Facebook page? Is it too repetitive? Why are you even a “Like”-er? What value do you get out of it? What would you like to see?

That may be too many questions. How about:

How can we make the SSC Facebook page more useful for you?
