By now, most of you know that I am a huge fan and mostly active (If not addicted!) on 2 major sites: Facebook & Twitter.
Lately, Twitter has gained some huge exposure on some big TV shows world wide, for example: The Daily Show, The Ellen Degeneres Show and tons of shows on YouTube.
Well, until I can get Ellen to follow me @GuruOfSales and listen to my ideas, I’ll just have to write about Oprah.
If you can recall, I wrote about Oprah using Skype, which was a very smart move by her show.
Today, on her show, she is interviewing non other than Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook.
But before Mark, Oprah Skyped Jimmy Fallon, and one of the questions that she asked him is: Who would you like to Skype after Robert De Niro and he answered: The queen of England! (Pretty Cool).
Now, back to Mark. The video introduction was great, and Mark was wearing a tie (For the first time ever I think!).
The interview basically explained the one true point in today’s web, sharing is everything, what made facebook what it is now, was the people, not Mark! However, Mark made the tool, made it easy to share idea’s, videos, photos, laughs or anything, a complete control over your facebook. Even president Obama, he used that power to gain massive votes hands down.
The good thing about this interview is that Oprah connects to millions that is not on facebook, whether because they are afraid or didn’t know how! So the message is clear, join, connect and share.
In today’s Online live, being transparent and sharing it is very important, remember you are not a machine, you’re human, just like me, we all do the same thing, so don’t be afraid, just get on and join. Don’t forget to friend me 🙂
Then Oprah introduced her show’s facebook page, which I think that’s every show, celiberty or company is finally catching up and joining the mass (Also on Twitter now!).
I’ve Just added (Became a fan) of the Oprah fan page and even wrote on the wall!
They even got Jimmy Fallon back through Skype and talked to him about his show’s facebook page.
And that is all, The interview with the youngest billionair was over.
Then there was a YouTube video interview.
The 3 most powerfull sites now (In my opinion) are: Faceboo, Twitter and YouTube. And today’s Oprah show was pretty much a promotion stunt as they used (& still) do for new movies and books!
I have to state the following about my opinion on MySpace:
If you have noticed, I have never done any articles about MySpace, that’s no accident! I have been in love with the Facebook system, clean and simple without all the filling and trash that is MySpace. Don’t get mad at me, but this is just like Microsoft’s IE Vs. FireFox, once you have used FireFox, you’ll never go back! And it’s been proven, do a quick comparison on compete.com or alexa.com between both and you will see how Facebook dominated MySpace. Not bad for my predictions!
At Wahol.com, we had over 14 hours on how to use Facebook for business or personal (And I did point out that your personal profile should not be for business, instead, create a facebook page or group for your business, it’s better this way!). Signup today to get more info.
