We launched a Facebook page for The Record this week; once we have a 100 "fans" we can create a simple URL for it ie. facebook.com/troyrecord ... but until then the best way to find it is to search Facebook for "The Record"; it should come up on the first page of results. As an incentive to sign up as a "fan" we'll give a $25 gift certificate to one fan at random is we can get 100 users in the next 15 days; see our Facebook site for details.
If you tweet (or don't tweet but follow them), we have four Twitter accounts with news alerts:
- The first is primarily news alerts; see http://twitter.com/TroyRecord
- The second is primarily sports alerts; see http://twitter.com/TroyRecordSport
- The third focuses on Latham-area news; see http://twitter.com/MyLathamLife
- Lastly, I tweet about things going on at The Record and in media, with the occasional alert on something of broader interest; see http://twitter.com/jamesamurphy3
We also have 13 blogs at http://www.troyrecord.com/blogs and are looking for more "citizen journalists" to join us. More on this in my next column in The Record, which will also be posted here.
