Like more than 500 million people in the world, the Node is now on Facebook . Our foray into Facebook was slightly overshadowed by the British royal family doing exactly the same thing a few weeks earlier, but we can guarantee you that our page will contain far more developmental biology.
We’re using our Facebook page much like our Twitter account: to notify you of new Node posts, and other brief bits of community news. Have a look , “like” us, and invite your friends and labmates to do the same. (We’ll still be updating Twitter as well, so don’t worry if you’re used to seeing us on there.)
There’s a link to our new Facebook page in the left sidebar, and the eagle-eyed among you may have spotted another new thing over there. Several people have told us that they couldn’t immediately figure out what the Node was when they arrived on the page for the first time, so we’ve tried to explain it very briefly over there.
Finally, some things are better left unchanged, it seems. We asked you whether you would like a change in the format of the e-mail notifications, and as it turns out, almost half of those that took the poll were satisfied with the current format. Good to know! Needless to say, we didn’t change the e-mail format.
