Facebook: The CiteMe Citation Application

So just when you thought Facebook was only for viewing baby pictures and following the everyday activity of friends and family, one of your Capella Librarians stumbles across a useful application. The application is called CiteMe and is pretty slick to use, coming from www.worldcat.org. But, like all citation generators, you need to verify with your APA manual if the citation is 100% correct.

In order to use CiteMe through Facebook you’ll need to have a Facebook account. Once you have an account you can search for the CiteMe application and use it to find and generate citations along with WorldCat.org. I found this brief video from SELCOtv (a Minnesota Library cooperative’s video feed) helpful for learning how to use CiteMe: SELCOtv 68 Using Facebook’s CiteMe application.

Here are some pictures showing how to access this application in Facebook:

1) Use the search box in the upper right-hand side of Facebook to search citeme (no spaces):

citeme1

2) You might need to next click on the Applications link to the left if CiteMe (as shown below) isn’t included in your results. Then click View Application:

citeme2

3) When you reach the CiteMe application information page, then just click Go to Application to begin using:

citeme3
