CampusBuddy's University Facebook Page tabs launch today, Free of charge

Social media dominates college marketing today, but places a newfound burden on schools to frequently create relevant information.

CampusBuddy strives to make social media simpler for schools. Today we are releasing a free university Facebook Page tab that can easily be placed on any Fan Page on Facebook.

The tabs highlight each individual schools offerings and updates with new information automatically, helping page moderators access fresh information about their college with less work. The tab is available for anyone who operates a Facebook page-- from official university pages to niche fan-made pages.
