Captain Rick: Facebook Chairman & CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his Team sent me a ‘thank you’.
I share it with you…
I joined Facebook in January 2010. I confess…at first I was not a ‘happy camper’. I did not really see its benefit. It looked to me like a bunch of people ‘yacking’ about much of nothing. Later, when I was beginning to take a ‘deeper look’, Facebook pulled the rug out from under me with the new look of the ‘Wall’. I did not like it. I was one of millions to complain. I came very close to quitting Facebook. Somehow, I managed to hang on. I began to see that the changes were actually not so bad after all.
During the later half of 2012, I began to investigate ways to use Facebook to promote my WordPress blog…’Atridim News Journal’. I discovered several local private Facebook Groups and became a member. The conversation taking place in the groups amazed me. There were real people talking about real subjects of interest, conveying information that was of real value. I joined in the discussions and began to have real fun. It completely changed my outlook of Facebook. In the process, I have connected with many new friends, some of which it trust will be friends for the rest of time.
I discovered how Facebook Pages work by joining many. I got brave and created my own: Atridim News Journal in which I have been sharing all of my WordPress blog posts to. It is a way for Facebook members to connect to my WordPress blog.
I developed a burning desire to create my own Facebook group. Thus the birth of the World Think Tank. Created about a year ago, it was a struggle to get it energized with members willing to discuss important issues that face our world in a truly ‘open’ Facebook group. I have gained a valuable education from the members around the world that post and discuss the issues facing our world. I am pleased to share that several discussions, including ‘Immigration’ are ‘on fire’ in the tank. I utilize thoughts from our ‘World Thinkers’ to fuel new posts on this WordPress blog.
Our world is getting smaller. People are connecting like never before…including me. And so, I thank Mark and his team for creating a new means for me to connect with my friends around the world. Go Mark and team!
