As it has expanded, Facebook has
become a very confusing program to use. It is now
extremely powerful and versatile, but with that comes
great complexity and subtlety, with many different
options and capabilities tucked away in various corners,
countless available addons and apps, and a site that is
segmented in ways that are not always intuitive or
obvious (News Feed vs. your Wall? Groups vs.
With the Mission now
more active role on Facebook, and knowing that many
of our members do not really feel comfortable using the
site and are probably not taking full advantage of its
capabilities, we have decided to hold a special Facebook
webinar this Wednesday, July 13, at 7 AM MDT
(Mountain Daylight Time) in our
GoToMeeting room. There will be 15
spots available on a first-come-first-serve basis.
Using GoToMeeting's powerful
screen-sharing feature to allow attendees to watch
exactly how everything is done (and maybe even to try it
themselves using remote cursor control!), the free webinar will cover
many of the basic aspects of Facebook as well as delve
into some of its useful but more complex features.
It will also attempt to bring clarity to some of the
more confusing and less intuitive parts of the site so
as to help attendees better understand what is what.
Since the Mission's main purpose in
using Facebook is outreach and sharing, focus will of
course be placed on features that can help in spreading
the teachings. Furthermore, as Facebook is far too
vast to explore in its entirety in just one webinar, the
topics covered will be very audience-driven, so bring
your questions about the parts of Facebook you have the
most trouble with!
The webinar will also go over the
groups and page and make sure that everyone is clear
on the differences between them and the distinct purpose
of each one for use in our outreach efforts.
For those of you that will be
unable to attend, the webinar will be recorded, so watch
for an announcement about it being made available for
download (by next Newsbrief at the latest).
For more information or if you
have questions about GoToMeeting, the webinar, etc.,
contact us. Also contact us if you are an
advanced Facebook user and would like to contribute your
expertise as part of the webinar.
Note: It should
be mentioned that while the webinar presenter-to-be is
reasonably proficient with Facebook, he is by no means
an expert on all parts of it, so please do not be
surprised if you manage to stump him with a question :).
However, he promises that with the help of Google, no
question will go unanswered for long!
