I am sure some of you are on Twitter and use it regularly to communicate with other in your industry. For me, Twitter IS my RSS feed. I check it thoroughly throughout the day and see what Facebook industry ninja’s are posting so I can read it. As Facebook is one of my areas focus on, I also tend to find Facebook experts there so I can follow them. Below is a list I compiled of various Facebook experts, some work for Facebook, some just rock the platform.

@FacebookMedia – Facebook + Media = Helping News, TV, Video, Sports, and Music partners use Facebook
@appsonfacebook – Discover updates, news, and recommendations for third party applications.
