    Mark and Susan, can you copy/paste the URL’s of those FB fan pages here? I can’t bring them up via FB search and I don’t see links from the web sites.

    Rooms by Tagg 2 has one, or at least I think you linked to it when you posted a story about the opening of the store.

      Okay, Tim, I’ve added 5th Bridge and Northfield Nursery School.

      Also, I got a nudge from Sandi Gerdes on Facebook to add Laura Baker Services Association.

      That makes 50.

      Hi Arlen. I’ve listed St. Dominic School already!

      Jessica, it turns out that Google is better at searching Facebook than the Facebook search feature. I’ve found these Fan Pages among those that you suggested. So thanks!

    Another reason to have a Facebook page for your org or biz:

    Google announced via Twitter this week, that public status updates from Facebook are now included in the search engine’s real-time search feature. That means the largest social network in the world is getting play in Google’s real-time search alongside Twitter, MySpace, and others, and these real-time results are often featured prominently on the first page of search results for the hottest queries.

    Apparently only updates from Facebook PAGES are indexed, and according to Danny Sullivan, that includes links, status updates, photos, videos shared by page owners…
