As if podcasting weren't "Web 2.0" enough already, now I'm getting deeper into social media by offering a Book of Life Facebook fan page and Twitter feed! A shout-out and welcome to those of you who are receiving this post through Facebook right now. Thanks for "fanning" my page!
For others who want to know what I'm talking about, click here to see The Book of Life's Facebook fan page, which allows you to receive podcast episodes and news right on your Facebook wall in your feed, and gives you an interactive space to post your comments, or even to post related links, pictures, or videos. You can view the page whether you are a Facebook user or not, but to become a fan and use all the page's features you'll need a Facebook account.
I'll be posting Book of Life Twitter updates at twitter.com/bookoflifepod. If you use Twitter, please "Follow" me to stay up to date on Book of Life news. Also, I'm interested in using this Twitter account to follow others active in Jewish literature, music, etc., so please feel free to suggest relevant Twitterers to me!
Just a note about the Facebook application, "Networked Blogs." Networked Blogs is one of those third-party apps not developed by Facebook, but which can be used through Facebook to follow a blog. Several weeks ago, I signed up The Book of Life for this app and announced it at bookoflifepodcast.com. However, the new Facebook fan page duplicates the same function by allowing you to receive our blog posts in your Facebook feed, and it also offers more interactivity. So while The Book of Life is still available via Networked Blogs, I'd encourage you to use the Facebook fan page instead.
