Vermont Media on Facebook

I wrote a story this week about how college students are using Facebook — specifically, I profiled a delightful Jordanian junior at Middlebury who is voluntarily providing info and advice to incoming freshman.

I've spent a lot of time this week on Facebook as a result. I have to admit, I'm finding it both useful and fascinating. I'm surprised that more Vermont media folks aren't on there.

So I was excited just now when I got a friend request from Ethan DezoteIle, the editor of the County Courier. It got me thinking that we ought to have a Vermont media group on Facebook.

So I made one. It's called Vermont Media. Here's the description:

"For Vermont media professionals and others interested in sharing thoughts about the internet, social media and the state of local journalism."

Join us if you dare!

Goddammit. I just got done explaining my reasons for not joining Facebook (involving my general disdain for other similar social network sites like MySpace and Friendster) to Selene Colburn, who's all about Facebook these days, and now I have to go make a FB profile and join the VT media group. Yes, I have too. Thanks a lot, Resmer. :)
