    No matter how much money they throw into marketing and how many more fans pepsi will engage… They will not outgrow coke, and I think main reason is because of their product. Coke taste better than pepsi and that’s an opinion of many people I know personally, that’s why coke sales are much better. On the fan page topic, the only way to engage people is by running promotions, giving discounts or engage in projects, donations for good cause, otherwise fan page doesn’t make any sense. U won’t become a fan of pepsi just because u drink soda once in a while.

  2. Do you think their goal is to “beat Coke?” Or just beat their own best sales record? I will be watching this campaign, looking forward to see it be successful for Pepsi.

    And not that it matters, but I happen to like the taste of Pepsi better.

    I don’t drink neither pepsi nor coke. The article is bringing up good point about the social media space in DC area. So, all I care is if their success will boost up the social media funding situation in our area. I think it will. I hope it will. I mean it should. Damn! it should. I mean Please 😦 We desperately need it. Come on the VCs. move it man!
