My, things do look different from this end of the week. Did you know that the word “Monday” derives from an Old English word for “moon’s day”? Fun fact.
- Tweet your way to online community with these tips from Robin Stephenson on engaging your supporters in 140 characters or fewer.
- For all those nonprofits who’ve been going against Facebook’s terms of service and maintaining a personal Profile instead of an organizational Page, good news: it’s now possible to make the switch without losing all of the connections you’ve built over the years.

- Once you’ve set up your shiny new Page, make your likers feel right at home with these ideas from John Haydon for creating a more engaging Facebook Page.
- Remember MySpace? Yeah, me either. But your audiences might. Geoff Livingston reminds us that there are more fish in the social networking sea than just Twitter and Facebook, and it’s worth finding out where your audiences are swimming.
