Facebook sets up government page
Site now offers a list of best practices, other resources
The popular social-networking service Facebook has introduced a page designed to help agencies set up and best use their own Facebook outreach pages, Tim Sparapini, the company's Washington representative, said at the Gov 2.0 conference held this week in Washington.
The site offers a list of agency pages, best practices guides, links to more information and updates of what is going on with government Facebook pages.
So far, 23 federal agencies have set up Facebook sites, he said. The service has about 250 million active users, the company claims.
