What are some clever web 2.0 / social networking tools to use to market a book to college aged kids in America these days?

I've got a book that's about to come out, and I've got a big social network of my own to work with. What are some effective, unique, cool, and smart ways to spread the word?
I'm not super familiar with how to promote things on Facebook or My Space but I know there are multiple ways. How hard is it to write a simple gadget (text and a pic) to include on peoples facebook pages?
The main character in the book is going to have his own My Space and Facebook Page, so how can I use that in my plan? There will, of course, be a book webpage with chapter excerpts and a blog for the character. Any clever viral-worthy gimmick ideas that are easy?
Any real idea, no matter how dumb or seemingly obvious, is welcome!
