With a nod to the car talk guys, this one is from the Shameless Promotions Division of the Technology Department:
Facebook, the social networking site, is now allowing organization pages to use their usernames for their URLs.
What does this mean?
It means that the Library's Facebook page, instead of having some long, hard-to-remember URL (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Troy-MI/Troy-Public-Library/104777508661), will have
www.facebook.com/troylib -- easier to remember and a match for our other social network sites usernames.
The catch? We need 100 of you Facebook users to become a fan of the Library. And why not? What better place around than the Troy Public Library!
Our Facebook page isn't very active now, but as we launch our new website, and roll out some of our other Web 2.0 tools, I promise you that it will be a great source of reliable information.
Take a look. Then become our fan.
