subtitle: What’s up with this “new” Facebook “graph app” I keep hearing about?
You’ve seen it, probably several times by now: a Facebook post from your friends telling you to change your settings for their posts. It looks something like this:
Just so everyone on my friends list knows that I completed this and I am done! Facebook has changed their privacy settings once more!! Due to the new “graph app” anyone on Facebook (including other countries ) can see your pictures, likes & comments. The next 2 weeks I will be posting this, and please once you have done it please post DONE!!! Those of you who do not keep my information from going… out to the public, I might have to DELETE YOU! I want to stay PRIVATELY connected with you. I post shots of family that I don’t want strangers to have access to! This happens when friends click “like” or “comment”….automatically, their friends would see our posts, too. Unfortunately, we cannot change this setting by ourselves because Facebook configured it that way.
1. PLEASE place your mouse over my name above (DO NOT CLICK), a window will appear,
2. now move the mouse on “FRIENDS” (also without clicking),
3.then down to “settings”, click here and a list will appear.
4. REMOVE the CHECK on “LIFE EVENTS and “COMMENTS & LIKES”. By doing this, my activity among my friends and family will no longer become public. Now, copy & paste this on your wall. Once i see this posted on your page, I will do the same.
In short – the overall idea of this post is at best, misleading, and at worst, false.
LinkedIn is the world’s largest professional network, with over 200 million members.
If yes, you would be wise to have a profile on LinkedIn.
Do you have a profile on LinkedIn already?
If yes, awesome. If no, you should set one up (or if you need help, let us know)!
If you already have a profile on LinkedIn, or if you are setting up your profile, consider these questions about your account:
- Is your name capitalized properly?
- Do you have a photo – a professional photo – as your profile image?
- Is your “Summary” interesting?
- Is your work experience information complete?
- Have you listed your skills, awards, etc? (In other words, is your profile REALLY complete?)
- What is the aim you have in mind when making connections?
You’ll find many articles online about how to set-up your LinkedIn Profile, and I quickly list these questions just to give you something to think about. Read more >>
A local Lethbridge medical clinic is employing Twitter as a tool to reduce waiting room times.
In a move indicative of the popularity of social media in everyday life, Family Medical Centre in Lethbridge has implemented a system using Twitter to communicate with walk-in clinic patients. Each patient receives a number when they check in with reception. Then, rather than having to wait in the waiting room of the clinic during the walk-in hours, clients can receive notification of number progression by following the clinic on Twitter.
I discovered this cool new system recently when I noticed the Family Medical Centre Twitter account @FMC_Lethbridge posting tweets consisting of a single number.
Upon investigation, I found out that they weren’t just being annoying (LOL!) but that the Clinic is using Twitter in an innovative and helpful way that I hadn’t seen before. Read more >>
Last year, I had the honour and pleasure of being chosen by the Lethbridge chapter of eWomenNetwork for their Businesswoman Makeover. The award was presented in conjunction with the Being the Best You Can Be in Business conference on June 7, 2012.
The conference itself consisted of a full day of excellent training and networking.
The Businesswoman Makeover was about more than just appearance. This was a well-rounded package of business goodies, representing many aspects of professional life.
Looking back a year later, I can say that the gifts I received in the Makeover Package were amazing, and very beneficial to my business.
But even more than the prizes, the most valuable part of this experience has been making connections with the business women who sponsored the Makeover. This group, within the larger network of the Lethbridge eWomen chapter, has been extremely supportive and amazingly beneficial to me and my business. Read more >>
