  2. 2. Edudemic: Why Facebook Just Became The Best Place For New Bloggers<br />http://edudemic.com/2010/08/why-facebook-just-became-the-best-place-for-new-bloggers/<br />Can Facebook really be used in the same way as a blog?<br />
  3. 3. What is a Facebook Page?<br />1st – Pages mainly used by businesses wanting social media exposure<br />THEN – <br />All Interests, Activities and other information on Profiles became Pages<br />And people could create Community Pages<br />
  4. 4. What is a FacebookPage and why I chose to use one?<br /><ul><li> essentially like a Facebook Profile
  5. 5. no need to ‘friend’ others – users connect though the Like button
  6. 6. a Page gives you a space away from your Profile
  7. 7. BUT can you blog?</li></ul>TASK > What is a blog for?<br />

  17. 17. can be difficult to build a following – like any social media
  18. 18. simplicity means FB Pages are not as sophisticated as blogs</li></li></ul><li>References and further reading<br /><ul><li>EduDemic - http://edudemic.com/2010/08/why-facebook-just-became-the-best-place-for-new-bloggers/
