Changes to Consumed Facebook page — and a new experiment

As you may know, Facebook has made pages (like the Consumed Facebook page) look/work more like profiles. That generally seems like an improvement. It has also prodded me to make some minor changes — and to float a new idea (see #3).

1. There are now more ways to offer feedback, which I’m always happy to hear, either by commenting on a particular posted column, or writing on the Consumed page’s wall. (I had that disabled before.) So please chime in as you see fit.

2. The page now has a status-update component, which I’ll use of course to let readers know when a column is online — but also to, for instance, to let people know that I’m going to be on WNYC’s Sound Check today talking about “Obama as muse.” That sort of thing.

3. The new idea: In an effort to put readers (I am not crazy about the word “fans”)  in the spotlight, I want to do a series of mini-Q&As with some of the interesting people who have joined the Consumed Facebook page. I will post them on and link from Facebook. I’m approaching people now, but if you’re interested in participating, join the page & let me know.

That’s all for now…

Further diversion may be found at MKTG Tumblr, and the Consumed Facebook page.
