Charles’s insight into modern relationships is remarkable, and it's all based on his research, his experience, and his real-world relationship laboratory on Facebook."— John Gray, Ph.D., author of the Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) February 07, 2012
On the heels of his internationally-acclaimed book The Problem with Women... is Men: The Evolution of a Man’s Man to a Man of Higher Consciousness, author, relationship expert and Social Inspirationalist Charles J. Orlando proudly announces his latest book, The Problem with Women... is Men - Volume 2: A Social Media Memoir. Based on the writing and interactions from his Facebook Page—with over 575,000 Fans and growing—Charles translates his personal connection with millions of fans into real world advice for men, women and relationships.
What sets Charles apart from other relationship experts is his connection with his fans. According to a recent study by Social Media analyzer Visibli,“On average, artists get 92 ‘Likes’ per post, which is almost twice what brands and media companies get.” With an average of 525 “likes” and 120 comments per post, and nearly 60% of his fanbase returning every month to his Facebook Page, Charles’s level of engagement is off the charts, rivaling media stars and first class brands alike—proving that the social nature of relationships is a natural match with the Facebook platform. To provide context about his engagement rate, Charles recorded the process and activity of a live status posting. Titled “6 Minutes on Facebook”, the short YouTube video shows how quickly supporters on Charles’s Facebook Page interact with his words and get involved.

“Charles’s insight into modern relationships is remarkable, and it's all based on his research, his experience, and his real-world relationship laboratory on Facebook,” said John Gray, author of the Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus book series, the best-selling relationship book series of all-time. “By engaging with hundreds of thousands of men and women on Facebook about the relationship issues they care about most, Charles offers fans the wisdom, advice and reflections that they are hungry for, keeping them coming back day after day.”
Charles's latest book also reflects changing trends on how readers consume content. According to CNET, over 5.5 million Kindle Fire units were sold in the last quarter of 2011, and industry analysts are projecting Apple to sell 116 million iPhones and 55 million iPads in 2012. To address this rising trend, The Problem with Women... is Men - Volume 2 is available to readers as an eBook but with an interactive Facebook component, with links included to connect on Facebook and “like” different writings, read comments or get involved in the conversation. This first-of-its-kind book offering allows readers to expand the discussion and engage with Charles himself on a daily basis.
“Charles is a shining example of how social media works when you do it right,” said Tony Bradley, freelance tech writer and PCWorld contributor. “By engaging his audience rather than preaching at them, and fostering an environment that invites feedback and interaction, he has grown an astronomical social network following without spending a dime on advertising or promotion.”
Generating half-a-million Likes on Facebook is a feat few authors and entities have achieved, and Charles has done it as the sole administrator on his Facebook Page. As reference, Charles has 50% more Likes than international publication Rolling Stone Magazine (383,000), and nearly six times the number of Likes as the best-selling book series Chicken Soup for the Soul (98,000). Charles’s Like and engagement status places his book’s Facebook Page in the top 100 Facebook Pages in the “Books” category (source: AllFacebook.com), and his growing popularity has led to him being considered as host of two different TV talk shows and a radio show, and a recent article being optioned for film.
The Problem with Women... is Men - Volume 2: A Social Media Memoir includes the top 240 posts from Charles J. Orlando’s Facebook Page as well as many of his published articles. It is available as an eBook for $0.99 for the Kindle and Kindle Fire (on Amazon.com), for the Nook (on bn.com) and for the iPhone or iPad (on the iTunes Store). The paperback is available for $9.99 through Amazon.com and bookstores everywhere.
