Facebook has announced its inaugural Facebook Creative Council, which convened in Cannes last week. Similar to the the Client Council announced last year, the Creative Council will help Facebook identify priorities for agency creatives. Members include Jeff Benjamin (JWT), Colleen DeCourcy (Socialistic), David Droga (Droga5), Rob Feakins (Publicis), Toshiya Fukuda (777), James Hilton (AKQA), Linus Karlsson (McCann), Amir Kassaei (DDB), Nick Law (R/GA), Mike Lazerow (Buddy Media), Tor Myhren (Grey), Rob Reilly (CPB), Mark Tutssel (Leo Burnett) and Mark Waites (Mother) pictured.
David Droga and Mark Waites both served on the now defunct Malaysian Creative Circle (MC2) Awards jury.
Despite some bad news regarding a legal settlement that will allow users to remove their names from Sponsored Stories,
optimism is growing for Facebook’s potential future to create an ad network.
