Now this is really cool. Have you been wondering why the social media activity for Cisco Live UK has been so quick, responsive, and high-quality? Well, today we’re going to show you why. Peter was invited to step inside the Cisco Social Media Studio at Cisco Live UK, which is the social media nerve center for the event.

Did you hear that Facebook filed its S1? I thought so…as did the entire world. There is some very interesting data coming out of the filing, including how many members it has (845 millionmonthly active users; 483 million daily active users), how much revenue it has (Revenue: $3.71 billion; net income: $1 billion), how many likes and comments per day (2.7 billion), how many photos uploaded per day (250 million) and how many friendship connections (100 billion).

Announcing the Cisco Manufaturing & Energy Facebook page!
Today we officially launch our Facebook page for Cisco Manufacturing & Energy.
We are launching this page for two main reasons:
First, we are expanding our blog platform and team. In addition to our original manufacturing industry team, we are adding thought leaders and experts from Cisco’s oil, gas, and energy teams.
Second, Facebook, as a social networking platform, is an excellent forum for discussion. It gives all users a simple environment in which to exchange ideas, articles, and opinions. It is where you will find videos, blogs, pictures and many other things related to the manufacturing, oil, gas, and energy industries. It is also a place where new contacts and relationships can be made, so be sure to get involved and engaged! Read More »
We kick off the new year with our SuperFans of the Year and a new photo-sharing program!
It’s been over a year since we launched the SuperFan program on the Cisco Corporate Facebook page and with much success – from the level of submissions and engagement from our fans, to the recognition and coverage on various social media blog outlets. To kick off the New Year, we are bestowing the inaugural Cisco SuperFan of the Year award to Dimitar Krstevski and Sandee Weiner! They were chosen based on their level of engagement with the Cisco Facebook page and votes from the community. Big congrats and thank you!
Given the success of the SuperFan program, we are offering our fans another way to engage with us with the launch of our new photo sharing program titled, “Where in the World Do You Take Cisco?” We want to spotlight our fans and their experiences with Cisco products, technologies and the brand. Submit YOUR photos that capture everywhere and anywhere you take Cisco! Along with your photo, we also ask that you include a written description in 100 words or less that helps narrate the story behind your photo or image. Need help uploading your photos? Take a look at the Flickr Group FAQ page.
The program launches TODAY so start submitting your photos! For more information on “Where in the World Do You Take Cisco?” check out the program guidelines as well as the terms and conditions.
