Facebook has become an important medium for community groups and charities like Friends to disseminate news and to organise and promote their events. Recently a Facebook page has been created to help raise the profile of Friends and to help promote Muir’s life and work. A (shortened) link to the Facebook page is http://www.tinyurl.com/fbfojmb
This Facebook page is in its infancy and will be fleshed out over the course of the next few days and weeks and will be kept updated with news, events and links to other Muir-related web resources. Friends (of the Birthplace sort!) are encouraged to ‘like’ the page as a certain number of fans are required before a more memorable ‘username’ – e.g. http://www.facebook.com/fojmb – is enabled.
