Facebook’s changes

Sort of a round-up post today – Facebook has been making some changes (and some third parties are making some cool tools) that I wanted to discuss. First is the change to being able to surf Facebook *as* your organization. Now my library can “like” other libraries, comment on news stories as the library and pretty much do anything a personal account can do. This is accomplished by clicking on the link at the right side of your organization’s page that says “Use Facebook As Your Organization“. After you do that, you can find your favorite pages, like them, comment on them and generally interact with Facebook just like a real person. This is something I’d been wanting to do for a while, so it was a nice change for me!

The other very cool tool I wanted to mention was Pagemodo. This is a free (for one page with an advertising footer) service that helps you create customized landing pages for your organization’s page without coding. I haven’t actually tried it out yet – though I’m in the process of working on a customized tab for my library’s Art Gallery FB page. I’m looking forward to seeing what it will do and if I’ll be able to make quick changes without having to learn a whole new code.
