Transcript of Facebook Groups and Fan Pages

Setting up a Facebook Group or Fan Page University of Winchester, 19th August 2010 Facebook is THE PLACE where many students spend their time. They, however, view this as their personal space, and many tutors don’t wish to be friends with their students on Facebook. This session offers an introduction to creating a Facebook Group or Fan Page, and will involve opportunities for discussion amongst delegates as to how best to ensure the Group or Page is likely to appeal to students, remain active, and contribute to student learning. Facebook is a social networking website launched in February 2004 that is operated and privately owned by Facebook, Inc., with more than 500 million active users in July 2010. Users can add people as friends and send them messages, and update their personal profiles to notify friends about themselves. Additionally, users can join networks organized by workplace, school, or college. The website's name stems from the colloquial name of books given to students at the start of the academic year by university administrations in the US with the intention of helping students to get to know each other better. Facebook allows anyone who declares themselves to be aged 13 or older to become a member of the website.
