*Facebook 101: Part Two of a Series Exploring Social Media Tools*

byEmily Crum, Chief, Communications and Content Services Branch, NOS

Room 8150,* 1305 East-West Hwy, Silver Spring, MD

Facebook, a social networking service where users can connect and 
interact with other people, is one of several social media tools 
approved for use by the Department of Commerce (DOC) and thus is 
available for use by NOAA. This presentation will take a closer look at 
Facebook---what it is (and is not) and who is using it (and how). We'll 
look at Facebook as a communications and marketing tool and ways that 
you can evaluate whether or not it is an appropriate and necessary tool 
for your office. I will provide an overview of what is required for you 
to get an 'official' DOC-sanctioned Facebook account and what is 
required (in terms of policy and resources) to maintain an account. 
Finally, I'll give you a few tips/insights into what seems to work best 
for the National Ocean Service Facebook account 

This is the second in a series of presentations exploring the social 
media tools that the National Ocean Service is currently using; future 
presentations will cover Flickr and YouTube.
