I created a professional journalist Facebook page today, a relatively new feature that Facebook has rolled out.
While I had never really thought to add a professional presence on Facebook in addition to my personal page, this explanatory piece changed my mind. It surprises many me how many people get their news from Facebook posts — which limits them to what their friends find interesting enough to post — but I figure if that many people are finding news through Facebook, I might as well publicize my work through it.
It also does offer some intriguing new ways to connect and interact with readers. So we will see how it goes.
