I was slow to adapt to Facebook. About two years ago I opened a personal Facebook account and attempted to open an account for IHEC Blog but could not figure out how to do so. Finally, in November 2009 I just sat down and tried again and I was successful. Since then, IHEC Blog's Facebook page has gained 279 followers (who will be number 280?). While I lose some followers here and there along the way I continue to slowly gain more followers and readers.
Why am I posting to IHEC Blog about this?
Because IHEC Blog's Facebook page is really a secondary/mini-IHEC Blog and often times the content I post there is different from what I post here on IHEC Blog and from what I post to Twitter. All the content I post is related to international education (for the most part and I reserve the right to divert on ocassion). To be sure, sometimes there is content overlap on these various new media platforms but I think many of you will find the content I post to Facebook to be just as interesting and helpful as you do with the content posted to IHEC Blog. In fact, more often than not you'll find more posts on Facebook than you will here on IHEC Blog. I try to post once a day to IHEC Blog (Monday to Friday) but I post multiple times to IHEC Blog's Facebook page. Why? Because it is so much easier and faster to post to Facebook than to here to IHEC Blog.
