We in the dance world depend upon Facebook for our a lot of our organization. I know that I personally use Facebook every day for dancing business. This being said, I recently saw that Facebook removed its slogan “It’s free and always will be,” from its homepage.
This got me thinking through implications of what would happen to the dance community if Facebook changed its business model. We in the dance world rely upon Facebook for so much of what we do. Could we still do it all if we had to pay for it?
I think that this issue is important enough to warrant a community wide assessment of how sensitive we are to changes in Facebook’s business model. To help with this, I’ve put together a short, 10 question survey about how dependent our organizations are on using Facebook. If you could share this around to all the organizers you know, it would help a lot for us to get a better understanding of where we as a community stand in regards to a free Facebook.
The survey should only take 2-3 minutes, and you don’t have name which organization you are, if you don’t want to. The survey will remain open until January 21, after which I will post the results to this blog.
Thanks in advance for helping us all get a clearer understanding on what having a free Facebook means to us as a larger dance community!
