For those of you who haven’t yet added me as a friend on Facebook you probably didn’t notice that I’m now using Upcoming.org as my social calendar. There’s a Facebook application which shows all my Facebook friends my calendar and where I’ll be. Oh, and we’re going to Portland this week. Search Upcoming.org for “Portland, Oregon” and you’ll find out there’s a Blogger Dinner on Thursday night. I’ll be there.
Of course, if you were a friend of mine on Facebook (I add everyone who asks) then you could see my entire calendar, just visit my profile page. Upcoming is a wonderful service.
So is Eventful, by the way. But I can’t find a Facebook application that’ll use Eventful, so Upcoming.org (owned by Yahoo) it is.
Now do you understand why every startup and Web service is struggling to get a Facebook strategy? I will support those startups that make my Facebook profile page better and more useful.
