Community Editor Amanda Harnocz wants to interview the people behind the pages everyone in North Canton 'likes.'
Do you operate a Facebook page for a local organization, group, business or school in your community? Then I want to talk to you. But first, a quick introduction. I'm Amanda Harnocz, a community editor for Patch. I'm a Facebook and general social media junkie and recently I was put in charge of managing social media sites for many of the Ohio Patch sites.

Facebook. Some people believe that it’s “of the devil.” I’m serious. I’ve actually heard those words come from their lips. And I think: Hello?!! Facebook is nothing more than an electronic medium. A neutral entity. A tool. Tools can be used for productivity or as weapons. This has always been true. It’s not Facebook that gets us in trouble; it’s our humanity. Just this week, I vented and posted.
