Here’s something to consider about Facebook fan pages. According to The Montreal Gazette, Canada has only 334 fans. But in taking a look at Government fan pages for Canada, which one do you follow?

- This one (2780)?
- Maybe this one suites your fancy (210)?
- Probably not this one (16)
While all of them say they are “government” which one is really the government? There is no ownership info; no info what-so-ever.
