Since my blog post last April, I have run across a few more templates that will be useful for fake Facebook projects with students.
While I really like the web based applications, as I have discussed before, they are not always reliable, so these templates are both a little more stable and more user friendly.
Google Docs Template: This template was originally posted on Google Docs by Meghen Ehrich. The new improved version of the template has an added page for more wall posts. It also has an additional page for comments attached at the end. This page can be duplicated as many times as necessary to add posts to the wall. To do this click on the page in the cue on the left of the screen, click on “Slide” at the top of the page, and then click on “duplicate slide.” This will allow for Facebook projects that have several pages of wall posts. I have had students do this project and produce over 20 pages of wall posts! To make replies to posts, just slide over the picture box and the text box. This makes the pages look realistic when they are finished.
Revised PowerPoint Template for 2010: This link will take you to Lindsay Cesari’s blog, No Shhing Here. She has taken the PowerPoint template that has been floating around for awhile and updated it to look more realistic. However, as often as Facebook is changing their interface, this “new” template is probably already out of date. It doesn’t matter. The general look is still great, and this template will work produce nice looking pages.
