Genealogical Society Webmasters

Utilizing Facebook to reach out to younger genealogists is something that all societies should consider.  A society officer with a Facebook account can set up a page on Facebook and those interested in the page can then click the 'Like' button to receive posts from the society in their news feed.

There are many features on a 'fan page'.  You can set up discussions, get news of events or other news about your society out, and do a lot more.  For example, FamilySearch has a Facebook fan page, it can be found at http://www.facebook.com/familysearch
