This was just posted on the National Association of Government webmaster
list I also belong to.  Pretty good general info about setting up
accounts and using Facebook, Twitter, and Blogger.

Hi Linda,

I didn't know there was an option for a government page. We created what
I think was a business page (I didn't set up, someone else did and then
left their position). Ours isn't live yet, we are still trying to figure
out how to make/add the content we want (hours for all our branches, not
just the main branch, etc.). I have a personal facebook account, but the
account we set up seems a lot different.

If anyone has a recommendation for a good Library Facebook Page 101, I'm
all ears.

We have been on Facebook for about 2 months. However, I accidently
created it as a business page instead of a government page. I just
created the gov page and will shut down the bus page as soon as all
"friends" (a whole 35) have moved over.
