A while back Geno from Brains on Fire wrote about what it means to be a fan and he even did a L+E inspired visual (above). Facebook helps connect us to friends and contacts now lets us be Fans of brands and products that we like. But does it make sense to go from Friend to Fan? I'm actually using the service for this blog in a pretty practical way. I've aggregated many of mys visuals all in one place. It's a start—but the most amazing thing about it was how quickly it was up and running. (see below)
If you want to be a Fan of L+E, get yourself on Facebook and go here. Oh, and interesting timing given the profile Crains Chicago did of me. Essentially it's the visual thinking that helped get this blog off the ground—so only fitting to treat it as a "product".
