Constant Contact adds Social Media

Recently Constant Contact acquired Nutshell Mail, a tool which specializes in social media marketing beyond CC’s core e-mail marketing business.

Sometime in the last two weeks Constant Contact added a new contact import feature–import from a webmail account.  You can now mine your contact lists in GMail, Hotmail, etc. for recipients.  Did your contacts opt-in?

How much longer until there is an import from Facebook?  Ethically, could that be done?  Does “likeing” a business on Facebook give them permission to contact you through email?  I vote no.  Use the contact form if you have feedback, comment spammers are still assaulting my blog.
