In the News

Rhonda Ferree, Fulton-Mason-Peoria-Tazewell Unit Extension Educator, Horticulture & State Master Naturalist Coordinator, article titled "Facebook Groups Improve Volunteer Communications" was recently accepted into Journal of Extension. The article abstract states, "Communicating with volunteers is often challenging in today’s fast-paced world of high-tech communication devices and social media. The growing number of Facebook users makes Facebook Groups a useful communication tool for Extension volunteers. Facebook Groups provide a closed space for small groups of people to communication about shared interests. This article provides examples from three Facebook Groups demonstrating how this tool improves communication while also providing education, sharing, and socialization among its members.”
