The Zooniverse loves all the wonderful things you do when you’re on our website, but we know that sometimes (but just sometimes) you stray and visit other URLs. We’re hoping that maybe, when you’re not hanging out with us here in the Zoo, you can take us with you to some of the places where you go to socialize. We’re all about the science, but after hours we know how to hang out and have a good time too.
As you can see right here on the blog, we have twitter feeds. They’ve been around a while, and a bunch of you are already following us. For those of you who may not have kept up with all the feeds, here are all our feeds: @The_Zooniverse, @GalaxyZoo, @GalaxyZooMerger, @Supernovae_Zoo, @SolarStormWatch, @MoonZoo, and @HannysVoorwerp (for the upcoming webcomic).
What’s new is our brave new foray into the land of Facebook. We invite you to make friends with “Explore Facebook”.
Along with this “Person,” we’ve also created a whole series of fan pages. You can now be a fan of: Galaxy Zoo: Hubble Edition, Galaxy Zoo: Mergers, Supernovae Zoo, Moon Zoo, and Webcomic: Hanny’s Voorwerp. Each fan page will let you keep up with the twitter feeds, blog posts, and we’ll even periodically be announcing special, in Facebook, opportunities.
We also have a favor: Several of you have created your own Galaxy Zoo fan pages and groups in Facebook. We’re trying to get everything tied together. If you own one of these pages, could you please message us through Facebook? We just want to make sure all the fan page owners know about some cool new things that are coming, so we can get the word out together.
