Facebook is a prominent and controversial social web network in which there is no single ‘home’ page but viewers see different configurations of posts displayed via algorithms.

There are plenty of reasons not to have account, but for those who do have accounts on Facebook, Planeta.com would like to help friends and colleagues make the most of Facebook, particularly via pages, groups and events. If you are creating or participating in a public event on the ground, check out the relevant pages on Facebook. Bonus point for making events and posts easy to embed on other websites.

For current users, highly recommended is downloading one’s own Facebook data. Easy to do from the settings page: https://www.facebook.com/settings

Favorite Pages and Groups
On Facebook there is a Planeta Page and a Planeta Group. Hosting a page and a group, I see the advantages and disadvantages of each, but it’s still difficult to articulate.

Questions

  • For those hosting something online, what are your lessons learned?
  • What are your favorite Facebook pages or groups? = ¿Cuáles son tus páginas o grupos de Facebook favoritos?

Pet Peeves
Curiously on my laptop and Firefox, I’m not able to read Facebook comments. I can if I check my phone and tablet.

Scandal
Given the recent scandal regarding Cambridge Analytica, we are reconsidering our use of Facebook. While some call for people to delete Facebook accounts, we are decidedly on the fence, finding the social web channel a useful tool to stay in touch with friends.

This page will be updated accordingly. Your thoughts?
