The Greater Manchester Police force has turned to social networking site Facebook to assist in apprehending criminals. The force has created a Facebook application that delivers a real-time feed of police news and appeals for information, allows users to share a story with Facebook friends, post comments, links to a "Submit Intelligence" page on the forces website and to videos on Youtube. This is another great example of reaching out to the community using the tools at your disposal... I'd personally like to see more organizations take this kind of approach! As long as they don't pester you with annoying invite a friend requests it just might work. PC World has the complete story here.
