Next Thursday (Nov 16) I'm talking with M. Murphy and making my pitch for why libraries and other services units on campus belong in facebook. Hopefully I can convince him of the value we play within their campus experience. He likes to talk about the community building aspect of facebook, so my core argument will focus on the idea that we (and other partners on campus) add to that culture.
I'll probably tell him briefly of my experiments, but I would love to hear from others on why you think they should allow departmental accounts. What is the advantage we gain? What's the advantage to our users? Why should facebook care?
I figured I'd send him my talking points the day before, along with a list of ideas I have for their future development.
