There is quite a lot of anthropology posted on Facebook. Anthropology Report uses Facebook mostly as a mirror for the blog. Others have interest groups which can feature vibrant comment streams and in-depth conversations–check out BioAnthropology News, the Neuroanthropology Interest Group, and the recently re-formulated Anthropology Now.

Please let me know what I’m missing! That’s a lot of Facebook Anthropology–You Like This.
