Facebook cover pages

March 28, 2012

You may be aware that Facebook is moving its users over to the new Timeline view and the University Library has already adopted the new look.  See what you think: http://www.facebook.com/uoplibrary

Musings About Librarianship has taken a look at what libraries are using for their Facebook cover page and we were delighted to see we featured:

But where does Southsea become Eastney, for example?

Presumably with the rise of virtual worlds such as Second Life – where avatars don’t necessarily genuinely represent the real humans behind them – this kind of thing will become more and more common.

But still one of those ‘you couldn’t make this stuff up’ stories.
