Del Campo High shares Facebook tips for yearbook staffs

Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

With school returning to class in many parts of the country this month, yearbook staffs are getting to work on their 2011 yearbooks.

One idea we have written about here in the Yearbooks Blog is creating a Facebook Fan Page for the yearbook to get the buzz started this year. Here is a recent article from the Idea File section on the various ways that Del Campo High School in Fair Oaks, Calif., has used Facebook.

Del Campo adviser Jim Jordan’s staff has not only created a Fan Page, but he’s created a group page for the Del Campo yearbook on Facebook that has allowed editors and staff members from previous staffs to find each other and stay in touch.
