Facebook Kicks Off A Weak Green OffensiveNovember 5, 2010 No Comments
Facebook has been repeatedly called out for not doing enough to promote renewable energy for its new data center, so what is the massive social network doing with this public relations dilemma? Launching its own Facebook page and joining groups to demonstrate its green cred, of course.
So, the Green on Facebook page is supposed to be one of its offensive moves (or defensive, depending on your perspective) to show it does care about the environment. The page has been featuring mostly news articles about green business practices and public-funded programs, with a few zany posts about making costumes out of recycled fabric and eco-friendly makeup for Halloween. It also featured a story about Facebook’s own use of a technology to cool its servers at one of its data centers in Silicon Valley in order to cut electricity costs.DATA and ANALYTICS
