Facebook profiles read like biographies, so we used them to promote biographies

To promote a new series of world biographies of De Morgen newspaper, we created facebook profiles of famous people. Through the facebook status we spread quotes and photo's featured in the biographies. We also announced the release date of each book and triggered discussions by commenting on things happening in the world. If you became a facebook friend of Nicolas Sarkozy or Fidel Castro, you could learn to know them a bit. But only by getting the biography you learned to know them really well.
