We have recently discovered a
Wisestamp which we feel could be another excellent
tool to spread the Mission through
social networks and over the Internet. It is an
email signature app, meaning that once you install it,
it automatically adds a section (a 'signature') to the
bottom of your emails. These signatures can
include the usual things, such as your name, phone
number, credentials, etc. However, what makes
Wisestamp special is that it also allows you to include
automatically updating posts from social networks such
as Twitter or Facebook.
For example, you could set
Wisestamp to follow the Mission
account. Then, anytime you send an email, your
signature will exhibit the Mission's
most recent Tweet. If the Mission
posts a new Tweet, Wisestamp automatically updates your
signature, without you having to do a thing.
Another possibility is, if you
post a lot of Mission materials on
Facebook, you could link Wisestamp to your Facebook
account, and have your Facebook posts automatically
included in your emails. Even if you do not post a
lot, you could link Wisestamp to the account of someone
who does, and have your signature display their posts.
Similar things can also be done for other social
networks and websites, such as LinkedIn, Ebay, RSS
Therefore, it seems like a very
powerful and useful service that could greatly increase
the power of the social networking outreach we do.
Posts on social networks could reach not only those on
the networks, but also anyone we email and communicate
with. It is an exciting thought, and definitely
worth looking into!
One possible problem is that it
looks like Wisestamp can currently only be used with
online email services such as Gmail, Hotmail, AOL, etc.
If you use an email program on your computer such as
Microsoft Outlook, you will probably not be able to use
it. However, if you are using an online email
service, we would encourage you to investigate Wisestamp
and try it out.
If you enjoy the program, find
other good ways to use it, discover any
advantages/disadvantages, etc., please let us know at
Mission_Of_Maitreya@maitreya.org. We will also
test the program and include anything important we find
in future announcements.
ATTG for another great tool to
spread the Mission!
