The SSL Certification: The Y2K of Facebook

So October 1st has come and gone, and Facebook’s mandated use of an active SSL Certification (“Secure Socket Layer”) has come to those of us using Facebook Fan Pages. So the real question is.

Where are all the guys who were screaming about the end of Fan Pages? Where are the guys who were using scare tactics to take advantage of fan page owners everywhere, basically tricking them into buying something something that really wasn’t nearly as “Life or Death” as they presented it to be.

That stuff just kills me. I can’t stand guys who are out there just constantly trolling for the next hot issue, and how they can profit from it. They are not there to add value to their customers, they are not there to build trust. And heaven forbid they should educate their customers and actually offer helpful, honest solutions to their problems.
