Facebook pages

I've decided to follow Derek's advice and set up a Facebook fan page for my Principles class. I figure it can't hurt to give students the option and I'm on Facebook a lot anyway so it's easy for me. While I was at it, I set up a Facebook page for this blog - I often come across news stories or other links that I think would be cool for teaching economics but I don't necessarily want to blog about and I figured a Facebook page would be a good way to post those. Unfortunately, I haven't figured out what the direct-link URL is (apparently, you need 25 fans before you can get a user-friendly URL but I can't even figure out what URL to use until then - if someone knows, please drop me a line!) but if you're on Facebook, you can search for Economics for Teachers in the box at the top of the screen and become a fan of the page that way. I'd love it if people want to post additional links or make comments there!


  1. I think this link will do the job. Finding a direct link to something on Facebook does seem to be harder than it needs to be. I think that one will work, however.
