March 21 & 27, 2012

Over the last year, there’s been a growing band of schools using Facebook to connect with their community. With the average user visiting Facebook over 58 times per month, school content is now where your parents are every day. It’s just like having a spot in a daily newspaper – for free. The early adopting schools now serve as living and breathing case studies with their experiences overwhelmingly positive.

Communications has moved on to such an extent that the experts say that websites are for search and social media is for community engagement. And Facebook is the biggest communications game in town.

“It (Facebook) is amazing to develop and maintain relationships with the community, and nowhere near as scary as I initially thought.” Jo Stephens Principal Malvern Springs Primary School
