Pharma Facebook Fallout
All alliteration aside, many pharmaceutical clients have been on pins and needles over the past week, as Facebook opened up user commenting on their Facebook Pages. It seems last week came and went with very little to-do. The world kept spinning, the sun still rose, and the stock markets didn’t … forget that last one.
One question that’s been on everyone’s mind is, “Who did what?” People have been curious to know who took their Pages down, are they allowing comments, have they implemented a policy? Jonathan Richman’s Dose of Digital created a great post that outlined which Pages stayed and which ones didn’t. We decided to take that to the next level to answer some of the above questions.
On this Google Docs spreadsheet, we’ve outlined what certain companies have done with their Facebook Pages after August 15. You’ll see that only 10 of the 62 Pages shown have actually gone away. A great sign that these companies are committed to social media! If you see that any Pages have updated in the meantime, feel free to leave a comment here, and we’ll update the spreadsheet.
