Activist Tips: Facebook
Category : Uncategorized
If you are not using facebook, I would recommend that you do. Facebook has a huge base of users – so large that it’s beginning to seem like everyone is on Facebook. It takes very little effort to set up an account and start connecting with people. Some people use it more for activism and connect with other like-minded people for sharing information and spreading the word about events, actions, etc. Other people use it on a more personal level, connecting with old friends and keeping in touch.
However you want to use it, Facebook is an easy way to engage with large numbers of people and promote animal rights.
Here’s how you can get started:
- Set up an account. Use your real name. Don’t forget to upload a photo of yourself during the account creation process.
- Spend some time connecting with people. Use your email address book to find people you already know and add them as your friends.
- Find and join groups that share common interests.
- Post status updates with interesting details about what you are doing or interesting news you have found on the internet. I post a lot of articles I find to Facebook. If you paste a url into the status update box, it will automatically convert it into a pretty link for you.
- Engage with people and converse. Make comments on other people’s links and share good links with your friends.
- Experiment. Facebook is constantly evolving, so there are bound to be new things to explore.
- Have fun.
