Facebook site is a good source for news and events

I've mentioned the MN Special Hockey Facebook site before, but it deserves a reminder. It's at

The page is public, so you don't need to to join Facebook to follow it. There's a public feed too, so if you're a geek like me you can get updates through your feed reader [1] even if you're not a Facebook member. I subscribe to that feed in Google Reader -- it's how I make sure I don't miss notices.

You'll also see a view of page activity on the right side of this news page.

If you're a FB member and you "like" the SH page you will receive updates on your "Wall" and/or by email and/or text message (SMS).

Highly recommended!

[1] Google Reader, Outlook 2007 or 2010, and OS X Mail are all good feed reader solutions. Internet Explorer 8, Safari OSX/Windows or Firefox are also feed readers, but their less ideal solutions. If you have a web phone you can use Google Reader Mobile or iPhone users have the excellent application.

PS. I think we may want to make the FB site our "news page" and retire this page, but I need to discuss that with Susie.
