"A Cook's Tour" of our Facebook profile
Whether you're brand new to Facebook or trying to figure out the new page format, we thought this little tutorial would help you find things that might be of interest.
The most prominent feature is the Wall, where fans and Association staff can post messages for all the fans to see. You can scroll down to see a few days of recent messages, or click at the very bottom to see them all. You can also click at the top to separate Association messages from those posted by fans only.
Please check out the "Notes" that you can find by scrolling down the left part of the page or using the "tab" at the top . In the Notes you'll find daily reports from the March 12-15, 2009 international research conference, messages from the Association, and a few other favorites like Laura Hillenbrand's "Defining Moments" and "25 Things Kim Wants You to Know About CFS" using the popular Facebook format to impart a few observations from my 18 years with the Association.
The photo albums are actually chock-full of information about the Association's programs and recent events like the IACFS/ME research conference. Each photo has a caption that gives you more detail and often links to other resources on our web page. You can meet members of our Board and staff, see recent publications and learn about our research program.
Take 30 seconds to watch our national PSA, running on television stations around the country. "Missing my Life" is part of the Spark! awareness campaign, a joint effort by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the CFIDS Association.
Finally, help us build our Facebook cause, "SolveCFS." Use the tabs across the top to locate "Causes" and SolveCFS. Join the cause and get your friends involved. It's easy to send invitations asking them to join. This is an easy way to spread greater awareness and a build a stronger community of supporters.
We're delighted that you've joined us on Facebook and hope to make this a vibrant and affirming place to share information and learn more about the community so invested in conquering CFS.
