app is the best I have seen. It is web based and easy to use. Students fill in the blanks, upload pictures and write status updates for the different people on the wall.

Kennedy Facebook Example
MS Word Template
: This template is a little harder to use and doesn’t look quite as good as the others, but it is another option. It does work in Word which is a plus if that is what students are used to using.
Classroom in the Cloud Facebook Project
: This blog post has instructions, templates and rubrics for a Facebook project using a template created with Photoshop. This looks like another great option depending on your goals for the project.
