Leveraging Facebook

So at MPOW, we’re trying to drum up student interest in a few upcoming events, as well as get some input on the new website design, so I dove into Facebook. I’m curious if other libraries are using the “event” function in this manner to drum up attendance at workshops.

Plagiarism Workshop
Citation Workshop

So I posted our classes as “events” and then pushed invites to all of the students and professors in my network. I also decided to reach out for website testing:

Love / Hate the Library Website?

Here I’m hoping to get some remote feedback as part of our usability testing. We’re doing on-site testing next week, but hopefully someone will find this interesting enough to leave a few comments on the wall and we’ll be able to use them.

Anyone out in LibraryLand doing something else interesting with Facebook? Anything new?
