This is a lightening quick post to publicise my joining of a website I discovered the other day called the ‘Facebook’.
It appears to be fairly new and I’ve no idea if it’ll catch on or if they might one day make an Oscar-nominated film about it being set up but as someone who likes to be on the cutting edge of technology, I thought I’d get on board before it gets too big and I’m accused of jumping on the bandwagon.
Seriously though, I’ve set up a Facebook Page which I’m aiming to use primarily as an extension of my Twitter feed. By ‘extension’ I mean that the page has been set so that my updates are automatically republished and so hopefully will be able to reach those members of the public who are familiar with the Facebook but not Twitter.
At time of writing the UK has around thirty million users of the Facebook in comparison to around seven million Twitter subscribers hence the numbers speak for themselves.
Whilst as far as I’m aware I’ll be the first individual officer to start a page, I do want to stress that it hasn’t been set up as a ‘fan’ site. I am working on a proper fan club with bi-annual newsletter, badges, ID card and maybe, if I can book an exhibition hall at the NEC, a convention in the near future. Stay tuned!
