If you already have a Facebook account, then you also already have access to tons of free resources and information pertaining to education and EdTech. Many blogs, websites, companies, businesses, and developers have Facebook Pages that you can follow. These Facebook Pages share all kinds of information and resources and some even ask important questions to stir a deep discussion among interested people.
To easily get started with using Facebook in your PLN, add interests to your Facebook profile. In the video below, I show you how you can easily add Interests. Interests on Facebook are lists, which are collections of Facebook Pages that other people have created. You can "follow" these lists if you like them.
Technocation Edition! - Using Facebook in Your PLN
Interests that you may want to begin with:
"Like" a Facebook Page
If you find a Facebook Page that interests you, "Like" it to have it added to your news feed.
Facebook Posts: Like, Comment, & Share
Remember, your PLN will only grow if you contribute and participate. If you see a Facebook post that interests you, you have a few options that will allow you to participate. If you enjoy the post then "Like" it! Liking a post shows others how many people also enjoyed it.
If the post contains a discussion, you can join in by commenting. Or if the discussion has started yet, then get it going!
If you think any of your friends or family would appreciate the information in the post, then "Share" it. Sharing a post will automatically show up on their news feeds.
