Many j-schools put minimal effort into their Facebook pages

PBS MediaShift

Some of the biggest names in journalism education are ignoring their Facebook pages, reports Jennifer Paull. The Missouri School of Journalism Facebook page has been up for several years, but there's no content to speak of -- even though it has more than 1,500 fans. The only recent activity: "Missouri School of Journalism edited their Phone, Birthday and Website." Paull writes: "Columbia University has a similar problem. The last time the page put content on its own wall was July 2009. Before that, it was August 2008. This seems incredibly unusual for a school that has such a strong Twitter presence."
