Y O U A L R E A D Y K N O W that Facebook is a great way to build and foster community. And while its simplicity is genius — posting photos and comments and "likes" and such is easy and fun — Facebook is also a powerful tool to organize and showcase events. Here are three useful FB tips to master: Making the most of Facebook Create a Shared Event Album With Facebook, you can create a shared photo album where multiple people can upload pho- tos. As the album creator, you can share access to as many as 50 contributors, who can each share up to 200 photos. Shared albums are great way to collect and organize photos from events like rallies to class field trips. Send Files Using Chat Receiving and sending files through Facebook is simple and easy through their Facebook chat feature. While chatting with friends, you're able to send images, audio, videos, and even documents like Microsoft Word or PDF files. Create a Group Facebook Groups make it easy to connect with friends, family and co-workers. It's a dedicated space where you can share updates, photos and documents, and mes- sage other group members. Privacy options allow you to determine if posts are public or visible only to group members. 16 Know & Tell By Terry Ng
