WNNFans.com directs users to Facebook page

World News Now, ABC News’ overnight news broadcast has been promoting the domain “WNNFans.com” on the air as an easier way to get viewers to visit its Facebook page.

The domain automatically sends users who enter it to www.facebook.com/ABCWorldNewsNow (it’s worth nothing the directory name ABC uses “ABCWorldNewsNow” is a bit long, clunky and hard to remember, making the domain even more of a good idea).

It’s also interesting to note that ABC is using Facebook for its entire fan-based site, rather than relying on its own proprietary software or a service such as Ning or KickApps. Not only does Facebook provide much of the same functionality as these services, but it has the advantage of already having a huge user base, negating the need for fans to sign up for yet another account online.

    Seeing how I have to get up early, I’ve been watching your show and find it better than the Today Show. You have more stuff on there and it isn’t all fluff either. Plus you’re funny too. :)

    rearview cameras are a no brainer…as suggested by the gorgeous brunette. however rear sonar/auto-brake would stop the vehicle from running over ANY obstacle(child, animal, or property) Duh…and eliminate human error for about the same price or less.think about it…It’s about the innocent.

    I have been watching wnn for many years and whenever someone leaves, i feel bad. Until your next anchor comes on. They all impress me and are a joy to watch. Sunny is so cute, and Rob is too. Love to watch you present the news. Keep up the good work.

    I just watched your segment on notebooks. Just google each of them for problems. ACER horrible customer support. when it breaks and they do your on your own. Getting it warrantied is but a hassle.
    HP, there were 3 hp dv6000s’ in our household. well 2 have the same motherboard issue that HP refuses to do anything but sell us new ones. another company that doesn’t stand by their product once you buy it. none of the reps could speak English and I spoke to a few. I explained how much we loved our laptops, we just wanted them to take responsibility for a defect they know exists. Then I threatened to buy Apples. You would think they would do something to take care of a customer who has purchased 3 of their products. Yeah well Im typing this on my new Macbook Pro15.
    Apple has done a great job and it is well worth the money spent. check the market they even hold their value after 2 years! HP, compac, acer all are lucky to still have all their features still working after 2 years. just stop into an Apple store and you’ll see who cares about their product. every time you open your Mac you feel good. Im not sure how they did that but you just do.
