As Facebook begin to allow for micro sites within their own platform these may begin to develop into full service portals that require more engaging content for the end user.

What do you like doing in your spare time? – When I’m not suffering from another change of season cold I enjoy doing as many outdoor activities as I can fit in, from mountain biking and surfing to long walks in the park. I also like feeding ducks as they make me laugh. In winter I like to play squash and go to the gym as often as possible, mainly to keep warm.
