ABS's Facebook is in beta. We are trialling Facebook to get your thoughts about what our Facebook should do for you. We're leading with a variety of content, but with an initial focus on graduate and cadet recruitment. The recruitment information will move from focussing on career fairs to providing FAQs about applying to work at the ABS. Among other things, on the Wall you'll see some interesting ABS data, videos, and links to other interesting Facebook pages. You also have our Twitter product release feed. But what works for you, and what doesn't?


Just about everyone knows about Facebook. We believe well over 60% of Australians have a Facebook account. It is estimated that 1 in every 13 people on Earth has a Facebook account and about half of them log in every day. So why wouldn't ABS want to use Facebook to engage with the public?


Your feedback and participation on Facebook during the beta phase (ending 30 June 2011) will assist us in tuning our presence to meet community needs.
