07/01/11 342 W - + 3 - 4 Blog > Facebook?


We meaning me has expanded our (my) digital channels lately, notably adding a Legeros twitter feed (www.twitter.com/legeros) to the mix. Blog posts are tweeted, along with most new incident photos (www.legeros.com/firepics). There's also a bit of exclusive content, tweets with, say, links to local, regional, or national news stories. Or other sites. Stuff that doesn't or hasn't yet made the blog. (For various reasons.) Remember, Twitter is it's own type of blog. A microblog.

Now, how can Facebook be added into the mix? Sure, there's already a Facebook profile page for Mike Legeros (www.facebook.com/legeros). But that baby's on high privacy alert. You have to be a Friend to see the wall postings. More complicatedly, those wall postings are not remotely equal to the content of this blog. They're all over place. Thus the question, how can Facebook presence be created, for Raleigh and Wake County firefighting? Or more specific, the Legeros-based perspective therein?

Over a year ago, a fan page was created called Legeros blog. That lasted a couple weeks, and was dropped due to duplication of effort. Two places for posting was too much at the time. Times have since changed, and it's time to offer (or try to offer) a Facebook entrance to this content. So how to get there from here?

That's the question of the morning. Best step is probably creating a Facebook fan page for this content. Public page, anyone can access. No friend-ing required. Craft an accurate name for same. Commence posting. And, on my personal Facebook profile page, redirect future fire-based wall postings to the new fan page.  

Does that make sense? Does that sound good? And what should the fan page be called this time? Raleigh and Wake County Firefighting, the same as this blog? Raleigh and Wake County Firefighting Blog, with the word "blog" added? Some broader, bigger, wilder, crazier title? You tell me. If we build the thing before Monday, we'll "arrange" for fireworks afterward.





Add in the new Google+ (Google Plus) and Social Media is all over the place these days…I must say I like Google+ even though it is still in limited beta. :)
