  • Edudemic: Why Facebook Just Became The Best Place For New Bloggers

    Can Facebook really be used in the same way as a blog?
  • What is a Facebook Page?
    1st – Pages mainly used by businesses wanting social media exposure
    THEN –
    All Interests, Activities and other information on Profiles became Pages
    And people could create Community Pages
  • What is a FacebookPage and why I chose to use one?
    • essentially like a Facebook Profile
    • no need to ‘friend’ others – users connect though the Like button
    • a Page gives you a space away from your Profile
    • BUT can you blog?
    TASK > What is a blog for?
  • Post updates and share links
    Write posts
    Share images
    Can you blog on
    a Facebook Page?
    Share self-created video
    Post information about real-life and virtual events
    Host discussions
  • Writing
    Notes
    • Simple to write
    • WYSIWYG
    • Images can be inserted into Notes
  • Images
    Photos
    • Page Admins can create photo albums
    • FB users who ‘like’ the Page can also add photos
  • Discussions
    • much like Discussions in Groups on FB
    • easy to set up and reply
  • Pros / Cons
    • familiarity – if you are au fait with FB in general, running a Page is simple
    • can be easy to build a following/community
    • retain privacy – don’t have to ‘friend’ people to share
    • familiarity – people might see FB as friends and family only, not work
    • can be difficult to build a following – like any social media
    • simplicity means FB Pages are not as sophisticated as blogs
