Facebook and YOU

November 30, 2009
Facebook has quickly become one of the most popular forms of social networking – staying in touch with people you see all the time, or people you have lost contact with, or playing games…    Our agency, Spectrum Society, recently started a Facebook Fan Page and within a month we had more than 150 fans.   You can visit us here, whether you’re on Facebook or not.   One of our favourite Facebook sites is “StartWithHi” – the CLBC campaign of ads, videos and discussions about folks being included in their communities.    Another is the Asperger’s Awareness Page which features almost nightly conversations by self-advocates and families. 
Recently one of our young friends, an aspiring Chef, practising for an exam that might lead to a scholarship in an integrated Chef’s college, published a photo of something he’d cooked and I watched as 50 people within a couple of hours sent messages of support (and hunger!).    This month’s poll is about Facebook – how do you use it and what do you like (or dislike) about it.   You can vote as many times as you like.


“If you have come to help me, you are wasting your time. But if you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together.”  Aboriginal activists group, Queensland, 1970s.   Often attributed to Lila Watson, who has said she was not comfortable with something not born out of a collective process – the attribution here is the one she accepts.
