With well over 200 million people around the world and 60 million Americans active on Facebook every month, big brands are beginning to market on Facebook. But how effective are they?

Today, Inside Facebook is excited to announce the release of our most comprehensive review of the state of the industry to date: Inside Facebook’s Best & Worst Facebook Marketing 2009 Report.

Inspired by last year’s Forrester Best And Worst of Social Network Marketing 2008 report by Jeremiah Owyang, we set out to find and evaluate the best and most innovative Facebook marketing efforts  over the last twelve months across a variety of industries.

We’ve spent hours reviewing hundreds of campaigns and speaking with dozens of brands, agencies, and service providers. Inside, you’ll find our detailed analysis of what worked and what didn’t – as well as best practices and our expert suggestions for improvement. Each review also details the key metrics achieved.

Each of the twelve brands we selected are innovators in their respective spaces. While their efforts weren’t always perfect, they are certainly instructive for online marketers, who should use our report as a benchmark for future Facebook Pages, Facebook application sponsorships, or custom Facebook applications.
