Facebook marketing tips and Facebook marketing strategies from Amazon, Spotify and Qype, presented by Facebook partner engineer Simon Cross

This podcast explains why the power of the Facebook platform is not so much Facebook.com, but rather, the connections, identities and interests of the network’s users. Using Amazon, Spotify and Qype’s Facebook integration as case studies, the talk suggests the social networking giant is much more than just a as dotcom destinations. It is a non-technical discussion of the Graph API
