How does our club use Facebook?
Facebook, a social networking website, enables us to easily share information about the Easton Lions Club with your family and friends as well as countless others around the world. It does this through the power of networks. It’s like the old parlor game “Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon”, which posits that any two people on Earth are six or fewer acquaintance links apart. Connecting acquaintances is where the true power of Facebook excels.
Our Facebook club page provides another way to get the word out about events, activities and good works we all do. It can be a very powerful public relations tool that is free, efficient and easy to use. Most recently we posted about the postponement of our auction, and within an hour the information was disseminated to hundreds of folks in Easton and shared among related networks of friends by others. Yesterday I posted the press release for the call for nominations for our 45th Recognition Banquet. This post reached over 1,000 people in Easton in a matter of a couple of hours via our Facebook pages, Easton Stories and through friends who shared it. To make the most of our Facebook page, we need your help, to be a part of our network of friends, and to share with your friends, and friends of friends, and their friends of friends, etc., links and posts from the Lions.
We currently have two Facebook pages and one group, please be sure to visit each and “Like” them:
- Our Club’s Page: facebook.com/EastonLions
- Yardley-Wood Rink Page: facebook.com/pages/Yardley-Wood-Rink/311561568886107
(Passed on to us by Ken Wood’s daughter Kathy)
- Thrift Store Group: facebook.com/groups/1379630145653289/
(Working on creating a Page)
“Liking” these pages will put our posts into your home tab newsfeed, making it easy to share our club information with your favorite friends and connections. For individual posts, a more powerful tool is to “Share” the post on your timeline. This will let all your friends know that you want them to check this post out essentially saying “All my friends have to see this!”.
If you have any questions about Facebook, or our page in particular, please feel free to contact, me, Matthew Cioffi or Dottie Fulginiti. If you have an interest in helping out with our web content, Facebook or otherwise, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
