What is Facebook is a social networking service and website launched in February 2004, operated and privately owned by Facebook, Inc.  As of July 2011, Facebook has more than 750 million active users.  Users may create a personal profile, add other users as friends, and exchange messages, including automatic notifications when they update their profile. Facebook users must register before using the site. Additionally, users may join common-interest user groups, organized by workplace, school or college, or other characteristics. The name of the service stems from the colloquial name for the book given to students at the start of the academic year by university administrations in the United States to help students get to know each other better. Facebook allows any users who declare themselves to be at least 13 years old to become registered users of the website.social networking service  colloquial name for the book Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Facebook ?

Run contests & scavenger hunts via Facebook Fan Page End your posts with question marks to spur conversation Upload photos from events and ask your Fans to “tag” themselves! Promote other Fan Page content and ask them to do the same! Listen: 1.Info Desks 2.Student Convo 3.Time of year?
Management It takes a team approach to make Facebook implementation work! Decide where content will come from and who will post it. If there are inflammatory comments, how will you handle them? Decide on timing and frequency of posts ahead of time. Raise their technology fluency for better chance at success. Mirror your “in-person” conversations “online”
Thumbs Up: How to know if you’re doing well! As a Student Organization You rely on volunteers to make things happen. Those managing the Social Media accounts need to be mindful how they use it personally. Get as many people involved in the process of creating content. As a Department You are paid to represent the institution. Involving a small group of staff, graduate staff, and paid student employees to manage it all. Be a connector and promote other campus departments, organizations and programs on your pages! Facebook Success: Comments and Likes on Posts Other Facebook Users Tag Your Organization in their posts Community is posting questions and comments on your wall Tied back to your learning outcomes and division goals
