Facebook has launched "Facebook Pages, which are distinct, customized profiles designed for businesses, bands, celebrities and more to represent themselves on Facebook". It is part of a larger advertsing driven initiative.

I've created a page for Bumblebee Auctions as a mechanism to get my head around it as much as anything else. The page is at http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=7060458932 and Chris has sniffed it out and joined already. Why not join as well so we can feel our way into the future together?

Online identity is a tricky beast. Coraider, our company, has reasonable Google visibility through products like our auction system, yet http://www.coraider.co.uk/ doesn't seem to register at all, and I'm bemused as to why.

I'm also becoming uneasy about how high this blog appears in the results of searches on the company name. It's not that I want to hide the relationship, but by the same token I'm not sure that I want to advertise it. Perhaps I ought to move it to a new domain rather than a coraider.com URL.

(This post will of course compound the issue by mentioning Coraider so frequently.)

P.S. I think I may have lost my mobile phone, so I will appear to have vanished in a puff of smoke in another quadrant of the digiverse.
