Adm. Mike Mullen, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, launched his Facebook page on July 2 and has already managed to attract 309 fans.
That's about 300 more fans than I have, probably because I don't have a staff to help me manage all kinds of social network stuff. I have a hard time keeping up with e-mail.
Mullen's Facebook page shows this is one wired guy, with links to Podcasts, videos and Twitter feeds, although the last Tweet - on July 5 -- is a bit dated: "Off to Moscow for the Summit. Looking forward to signing the workplan for better cooperation with the Russian military."
Who would have thunk a year ago that the JCS chairman would have Facebook fans?
