Here's a quick update on our new Community Manager.
Our Facebook fans have likely noticed by now that many of the Malvern Patch Facebook posts and comments end with a couple of dashes and an unfamiliar name, "--Eric". So, who is this guy? He's Eric Campbell, a longtime Patcher and Associate Regional Editor for 14 sites in the Main Line area, who will be helping out with social media in Malvern with the addition of his new role as Community Manager. He'll also help community members post blogs, announcements and events on the site, and generally be another conduit through which all Malvernites can interact with Patch. I'll still be posting on Facebook and Twitter, too, and will tag posts "-PK," but Eric will be handling most of the social media responsibilities. He's a smart fellow with a …

The restaurant group joined the social networking site in 2010, but went silent for years.
If you liked Margaret Kuo's Restaurants on Facebook in the past couple years, you might have forgotten you did so until last week. Its account just became active after years of silence, and it's apparently making up for lost time. "Thanks to our friends at Main Line Today Magazine, we were honored with this cover in 2003," it wrote on its Facebook page last week. The restaurant group, which operates Margaret Kuo's Mandarin in Malvern and other restaurants, joined Facebook on Jan. 26, 2010. It posted intermittently through June 19 of that year, and then went silent for more than two years. Last Tuesday, the company returned to Facebook with a flurry of posts, starting with one about its eponymous founder speaking to cadets at Valley Forge …

The Charlestown resident and former senatorial candidate writes that the social network creates an echo chamber.
Malvern-area resident Steve Welch, who ran for the Republican nomination to challenge Sen. Bob Casey earlier this year, believes Facebook is insulating its users, to the detriment of the GOP. In an op-ed published Sunday on Philly.com, Welch wrote that the social media network creates an echo chamber for users and stifles intelligent debate. He was susceptible to the insularity of the network, too, he said, and allowed it to influence his expectations of the 2012 election. Read the full column here, Facebook's self-affirmation pushes GOP out of mainstream, on philly.com.

Drug searches, road washouts and 'Who bought the manse?'
Every so often, we bug you to like us on Facebook—or to encourage your friends to do so—by providing examples of how it's a mutually beneficial deal. Here are three such examples from last week: Lockdown at Great Valley High School—On Thursday, a reader asked, Do you happen to know why state police were at GVHS this morning? We did not know, but a couple quick phone calls revealed that the school was locked down while police dogs searched for drugs. We answered the question on Facebook first, then posted the story on Malvern Patch. Water main break on Paoli Pike—On Friday, a reader gave us this traffic tip via Facebook: water and police on Paoli Pike near Devon road looks like a water main break.

A couple of examples from the past week.
You should like Malvern Patch on Facebook. It's easy. Click here. Last month, I told the story of how a Facebook follower alerted us to a multiple police cars in her neighborhood. Here are two more recent examples of how following Malvern Patch on Facebook helps us, and helps you. Break-in at St. Patrick: On Sunday, Oct. 21, a Facebook fan simply asked, "Do you guys know what happened at St. Patrick's school this morning?" We followed up, and were able to tell the story—that a homeless man had attempted to burglarize the school—that afternoon. Guide coverage: On Monday, Oct. 22, we asked our Facebook readers to finish the sentence: "Tonight, Malvern Patch editor Pete Kennedy should..." The poll only got two votes—both for the Willistown …
