IBM Lotus Technical Information and Education Weblog, Facebook Fan Boxes, and customizing Lotus Connections!

I've been working again with Joyce Davis on the new Lotus Technical Information and Education Team Blog on IBM Lotus Greenhouse to create a more fun and functional user experience for the community. So far, we've added the Yahoo! Media Player (mentioned here).
Today, I added a Fan Box from the LTIEC Facebook Fan Page... which -- like the Yahoo Media Player -- was easy to do once you know how to modify a Lotus Connections Blog Template...
I simply went to the My Blogs (I am an author of the LTIEC Team Blog; membership has it's privileges!) and went into the Settings and selected the Edit option for the Weblog Template:
... and entered the following markup:
<fb:fan profile_id="46376367191" stream="" connections="" width="300"></fb:fan>
Pretty simple really -- and it's something that you can even add to your own Blogs (even Lotus Connections-based blogs, as you can see) -- to help spread the word beyond the yellow bubble!
Would you like to see anything else on the Lotus Technical Information and Education Team Blog? If so, feel free to leave a comment on this post or email me your suggestion!
