Just last week, Facebook came out with a new page called “Journalists on Facebook” to share best practices for engaging with readers and encouraging them to view content.
The page has more than 45,000 “likes” in just over a week, and many of the tips are applicable/useful to the public relations community.
Why so much interest? Here’s what Facebook says: “Over the past year, we’ve worked with media organizations to help make their content more social and empower readers to experience news through their friends. Since we first launched these initiatives at the beginning of 2010, the average media organization has seen a greater than 300% increase in referral traffic from Facebook.”
Check it out, give it a like and see what all the buzz is about.
