Integrated Facebook Application Collects Feedback Within the Social Networking Site to Maximize Consumer Engagement, Insights

LONDON, January 18, 2011 - Globalpark, a leading provider of enterprise feedback solutions
(, introduces Social Insight Connect to help
organizations create value - and brand insights - from their Facebook fans.

With Social Insight Connect, marketing and digital teams move beyond
social media monitoring to create a private feedback channel within the
Facebook environment - to better understand consumer needs and preferences,
test and innovate new products, and extend marketing reach from an
at-the-ready audience. Participating Facebook fans provide their feedback,
engage in interactive forums, get alerts for new projects, and even redeem
any reward points without ever leaving the social networking site.

"It is important to integrate feedback opportunities into consumers'
preferred environments - which, more and more, start with online networks,
social media and mobile devices," explains Globalpark CEO Lorenz Graef.

Additionally, market researchers who are already doing research - whether
ad hoc, through a panel or community - can now easily incorporate the
Facebook channel to broaden reach, get faster and higher response rates, and
engage with individuals "at home" in their Facebook accounts.

"Social media plays a growing role in today's communications between
brands and customers. We are committed to bringing the two worlds of research
and social media together where it makes sense for our clients, and as a
matter of convenience and engagement for participants," Graef summarizes.

Globalpark will host a webinar on February 24th, 2011 at 2pm Eastern (7pm
) to provide more detail and show an example - to register:

Social Insight Connect is also featured in Forrester Research's January

report The Next Evolution of MROCs - to download:
