@deltaairlines Biscoff Bake-off? why isn’t anyone monitoring content?!

November 28, 2011
Delta’s Facebook presence as a business page is impressive. http://www.facebook.com/delta?sk=app_153700691390232 Their wall engages followers in posting comments and includes special offers. There are no less than 5 separate customized screens with details about features, services, a Biscoff Bake-off contest and more. A recent contest required entrants to be on Facebook and to “like” Delta, thus adding to their online presence. As a long-time SkyMiles member and frequent flyer, I never heard a word about the holiday contest until a friend liked Delta on Facebook – very poorly marketed!
EPIC FAIL – The programmers who added the Biscoff Bake-Off contest information (start on Sept 30, 2011 and end on Oct 23, 2011) have – as of Nov 28, 2011 – STILL not updated the information nor taken it down. The contest ended and winners announced already. A single wall post celebrates the winning bakers Meg King (730 votes), Laurie Lufkin (517) and Atif Chaudhrey (668 votes) and recipes: http://bit.ly/t92mhL. Although baked salmon and crusted shrimp are creative in their use of cookies – give me cookies!
Biscoff gets it!
