I recently came across this fascinating short video about why some videos go viral.

The bottom lines: tastemakers, communities of participation, and unexpectedness.

It’s worth a watch.

Growing your Facebook fan base

Sometimes investing a little bit of dollars has a big impact on your base.

The good folks at Idaho Conservation League did an interesting strategy and let the folks at Groundwire share it with the world.

Bottom line:  Facebook for a very low dollar figure lets you microtarget ads at a very small group of people who’ll be highly likely to become fans.

I’d be interested in seeing how other organizations use this opportunity over the next few years.
