My daughter tells me about her friend–how he uses Facebook to get the word out about his upcoming spoken word performances.
He creates a new Facebook profile picture and he asks his friends to use it for their profile pictures. The idea is that it starts to show up a lot–and when other friends ask about it, they get a link to the event.
Does this work? Is it annoying?
I don’t know, but my daughter says I should try it, and this seems like a prime time. If you have friends in the New York area, can you help me get the word out? (And help with this experiment? It could be brilliant–or it could be the fastest way to lose Facebook friends ever.)
Here (again) is the picture:

(In the best interests of the Department of Redundancy Department, I’ve posted a Facebook note, too.)
