Can 2,000 Facebook Folks "Like" the California Arts Council by May 1?
Facebook did an interesting thing recently: they changed the "fan" concept for organizations' supporters to "like." So now there are hundreds of Facebook users who "Like" the California Arts Council versus being a "Fan." We want to let you know nothing has changed on our page, the functions are still the same ... and we have a goal to grow our network to over 2,000 in our Facebook network by the beginning May. If you're new to Facebook, come to our Facebook page and hit the "Like" button. And if you're a previous fan, ask a friend or two to "Like" the California Arts Council and help us get to our current goal, and help support the arts in California through social networking.
