Microsoft advertises on new media such as Facebook

 To launch its newest product, the Windows Server 2008, Microsoft used new media as part of its marketing tools. For the first time, Microsoft used Facebook and blogs to help spread word about its latest product and product launch. Of course, Microsoft’s interest in Facebook is not something new. Nevertheless, it’s about time that such company giants join in on new media too.

I came across another interesting way of advertising. It’s a fundraising blog called 1001 Blogs for a charity in the UK. With a 5 pound donation, you can place a link on the site to your blog, so in a way, it’s like a form of advertising for your blog!
