Sponsor(s): Chicago Chapter of the American Chemical Society
To show that Chicago is a hotbed of chemical activity, our dedicated Facebook page brings attention to chemistry events in Chicagoland and helps celebrate the daily features on the ACS IYC page. People who "Like" our page in FB receive updates on our events in their personal "News Feeds". http://tinyurl.com/6bvabwr
The Chicago Chapter of the ACS has created a Facebook page for the IYC to maintain a web presence in the social media landscape. Every day, millions of people use Facebook to check status updates and events posted by their friends and organizations they have chosen to follow. When we announce Events such as seminars, lectures, and our many outreach activities, everyone who has "liked" our page gets an update in their news feed, right next to posts from their friends and family. This not only brings attention to the chemical enterprise, but it also makes it more human, more normal in an everyday sense.
