PR people pay attention.
I don’t answer email anymore. Too much of it.
But there’s one thing that gets passed to my Nokia phone: Facebook wall messages.
Anyone around me knows that occassionally my phone goes “beep, beep.” That’s Facebook (I only pass wall messages onto my phone via SMS).
Today we were walking around Babies R Us in Colma (buying baby stuff) and my phone went “beep, beep.” It was a Facebook message from Frank Roche. If you’re on my Facebook profile you can see it.
It says “Cool new iPhone app: Mock Dock http://mockdock.com.”
I quickly turn to Patrick, say “try this out.” He tried it out and says “it’s cool.” I took a picture of Patrick using it and it, indeed, is cool. It’ll be the first thing I put on my iPhone when I get my own.
It’s a Web page that adds a ton of cool Web apps to your iPhone.
And now we have a new way for PR people to let me know about their apps. Write it on the wall please. Facebook: the new press release.
Oh, and you now know how to get my phone to go “beep, beep” too.
UPDATE: It’s 10:16 p.m., my phone just beeped so I headed over to Facebook to see what was just posted. Well, Otto Radke just posted on my Facebook wall: “if you liked mockdock.com checkout mojits.com. I prefer that over mockdock.com.”
I’m already starting to be trained like a pavlovian dog. Beep beep brings good stuff. Mojits rocks.
