I absolutely love this. As a professional ad man myself, I’m fascinated with Mad Men and the dialogue, particularly between agency and client. With the very recent announcements of new Facebook timeline features, social media is buzzing with what the implications may be. In the circles I run in, a lot of people wonder how the changes affect brand advertising and engagement. If you are one of the 800 million people that use Facebook (and I’m guessing you are) do yourself a favor and watch this short video, it’s only a few minutes long.
Who knew that Facebook’s newest feature was originally conceived by the Mad Men of the 1960s? In all seriousness the most compelling elements of Facebook’s Timeline are the ones that made Kodak’s Carousel popular. Reminiscing is a social activity. It always has been and now Facebook is bringing that activity online.
