This is an excellent example of how Social Networks help in reaching out to people who you think are otherwise unreachable. Just hours after I learned of Gary Briggs taking over as Chief Marketing Officer of Facebook, I wrote to him with a request to interview him for Kiruba.TV. He promptly replied and requested me to approach Facebook PR team which is the right thing to do for a guy in a new job. I did and received a short but nicely worded email, “Hi Kiruba: Ana here from Facebook’s PR team. Thanks for reaching out, but we will need to pass on the interview opportunity.”.
First, Kudos to the team at FB for being extremely prompt in their replies. Second, even though it didn’t work out, its amazing how easy it is to reach and connect with people. All we need to do is take the effort to reach out.
