Want to see a larger version? Go here. YouTube version is here. Downloadable version is here. MP3 only version is here.

This screencast is for BIGWIG’s 3rd annual Social Software Showcase, being held Monday at the American Library Association’s annual conference.

How can you participate? Two ways:

  1. Watch the screencast and make a comment – what do you think? What are you doing with Facebook Pages?
  2. Show up at my table Monday, July 13, 10:30am. Instead of a formal presentation, show up having watched my screencast … and we’ll have a discussion about Facebook Pages!

So … this screencast is all about Facebook Pages. Here’s what I cover:

  • The basics of a Facebook Page – I describe what can be done with the Wall, the Info page, friending, status updates, events, discussion boards, and boxes.
  • Who uses your Facebook Page? I talk about the stats that come with a Facebook Page.
  • Facebook Apps – I briefly talk about the two apps my library has built
  • Connecting with customers – I talk about the ways a library can connect with customers using their Facebook Page.
  • And I mention my library’s Facebook Page quite a bit…. check it out!

So –  chime in in the comment box and at my table on Monday! I plan to also live stream the discussion – we’ll see how that goes.
