David Deal, VP of Marketing at Razorfish was kind enough to clarify Razorfish’s involvement in the JC Penney-Facebook Connect initiative that I so roundly trashed yesterday. (Note: yes, I’m aware at how supremely contrarian and bratty I can be, my apologies…somedays are more so than others).
In a comment on that same post David notes:
To clarify: although Razorfish executed the media buy for the project, the social media idea and creative execution did not come from Razorfish — David Deal, vice president of marketing, Razorfish.
And again, my main lament about this JCP-FBC initiative is that I believe the implementation of FBC is missing its full potential. I just hope to see some more innovative uses of FBC in the future that don’t pigeon hole it into specific campaigns…I’m interested in what impact FBC can have on a brand’s overall digital strategy.
