Recently I created a separate Facebook account that I could use to interact with my students at school (this started during the teacher strikes last year and the easiest way for me to contact/educate them was through Facebook - go figure).
Today I decided to create a Rachel Morgan Facebook account (if you're counting, this is now number three!). So then I was going through the blogs that I follow to see who had links to Facebook, and I was clicking through to add those people as friends. I noticed then that some people had PAGES rather than actual accounts. So I looked up some info about pages, and that's when I discovered this:
Eish. Ok. So I then decided to DELETE my new Rachel Morgan account and my school account and make pages instead :-) Which is far easier actually, now that I don't have to keep logging into three separate accounts. And the great thing is -- for those of you worried about protecting your real name -- even though you (the real you) are the administrator of the page, no one ever sees this administrator name (unless you write it somewhere on the page, of course). Whenever you post anything on the page, the page's name is used.
Anyway, so now I have a cute little Facebook button on the sidebar of my blog where you can "Like" me :-)
(Um... please like me... please??)
(And for those of you that I sent a friend request to from my in-the-process-of-being-deleted account, I'm sorry!)
And here's the website that taught me all about using Facebook Pages.
