Is there a way to go to the ‘real’ facebook page of Abe lincoln? I tried to look ‘him’ up on FaceBook, and there were like 100’s of pages. Can we view them, just not post on them? Did you girls make it, or did you happen across it?

I don’t think there is going to be a “real” FaceBook page for Lincoln. There would have to be way too many other fake characters to make that work. I’m guessing this was completely generated outside of Facebook, except of course for the borrowing of images. I haven’t reviewed it, but I’m pretty sure the TOS on FaceBook wouldn’t allow the creation of fake pages anyway. I stumbledupon this image. No idea how it came about, but thought it was a great idea for an alternative assessment on History.

Well, I absolutely LOVE it! I never heard of “stumbleupon” either, until you linked in your comment. That must’ve taken a LOT of work, if someone had to create the facebook clone from scratch! Totally neat idea. I wonder if someone would make a fake networking site and put historical people up there–just for academic purposes, of course ;)If not electronic, have kids draw out the template, and put a historical figure into their creation… hmmm…

Hi – I just stumbled upon your page and I was surprised and complimented to see that you listed my link as one to check out on PageKeeper.

Thanks ;-) djbecker
