ARBOmedia Selling Ads on Facebook
ARBOmedia, one of the largest online advertising networks in Poland, officially started selling ads on the Facebook community networking website in January.

ARBOmedia says it has incorporated Facebook into its ARBOnetwork advertising network, which also works with other community networking websites such as grono.net, epuls.pl and hi5.com.

ARBOmedia does not handle classic display-type ads on Facebook, but focuses on ads that involve interaction from users.

In October, 2.4 million users from Poland visited Facebook, according to data by Megapanel PBI/Gemius.

Winter Olympics on Public TV
Polish public television broadcaster TVP says it will provide extensive coverage of the upcoming 21st Olympic Winter Games on five channels, TVP1, TVP2, TVP Sport, TVP HD, and TVP Info. The Games, to be held in Vancouver, Canada Feb. 12-28, are the biggest sports event of the year alongside the soccer World Cup in June.

Viewers will get to see the key events of the Games and all those featuring Polish athletes live on TVP1 and TVP2, the broadcaster said. TVP1 and TVP2 will air a combined 130 or so hours of live coverage. On TVP Sport, the Olympics will be featured around the clock.

The public broadcaster will also launch a special multimedia Olympic website at vancouver.tvp.pl with live online feed as well as access to other broadcasts from Vancouver. The website will simultaneously stream six channels with Olympic events. Visitors to vancouver.tvp.pl will be able to watch the Winter Olympics at any time of day and night, check the latest reports, scores, broadcast schedules, take Olympic quizzes, and play an online game called Vancouver2010 in which they will compete against opponents from across Europe in four Olympic events.
