Facebook Takes Another Step Toward Merging Functionality of Pages and Profiles

Anyone who’s been following this blog knows I’ve been playing pretty heavily with Facebook Pages as a marketing tool and think the tools have already surprised Twitter as a micro-blogging tool in terms of functionality (and in many ways, even utility).

This morning, I noticed that Facebook has now taken it one step further. In the area that used to be reserved for making “friend” recommendations, they’ve now started including profile Pages!

This rocks and I’m sure will make it even easy for people to gain traction on their profile page. And if you want to join my page as the community I’ve created explores how to use social media and Facebook Pages to generate business, then head over and become a fan!

By the way, I really want to thank the 200+ people who have become fans over the past few weeks. It’s been fun to watch as more people join because the conversations have obviously improved. It seems like almost every micro-blog post, video, link, etc. is generating a conversation, which just rocks from my point of view!
