Our club has extended it web presence by setting our photography club up as a group on the popular Facebook social networking site. We have found that the club already has many of it’s current membership on the service and feel that this addition to our club’s web presence will further enhance members participation in club activities.Even with our other web locations we feel that this will add another dimension to our members furthering their photographic skills. It’s easy to post to what’s referred to as the “Wall” which is a location where all members of the group will be able to view anytime they login to Facebook and even have the option of getting an email alert when you post something to the “Wall” or the groups Gallery or Video section along with many other things.It’s also a great way of keeping up with what our members are doing on a day to day, hour to hour or even minute to minute basis if they want to update their status that often. I myself update my daily activities several times a day letting folks know what I’m up to from a photographic standpoint among other things. You can also easily leave messages for each other (private or otherwise) or do a live chat with other members online at the moment you are.If you are on Facebook browse on over to the club’s group and request to join. As with our other website locations this will be for club members only so each request to join will have to be approved. The link for the group is:http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=98962615167If you’re not already a member of Facebook you will be given the opportunity to sign up when you visit the link as you won’t be able to view the group unless you are signed into Facebook. I joined a few weeks ago and have found it to be a very refreshing way to keep up with what my friends, family and co-workers are doing.If you’re concerned about your privacy, Facebook gives you the option of only allowing people you select and approve as “Friends” to see your postings and information, plus the ability to set how you are emailed either by the group or Facebook.
