Parent Hacks admin: Become a fan on Facebook

Parent Hacks on Facebook

I may be what one friend once described as "old-school Web" (I've been online since '95) (that's almost 15 YEARS) (*cough*), but it's taken me till now to succumb to Facebook. Funny, really, because the conversation is the whole reason I love the Web -- blogs, specifically. It's why I love Twitter and use it every day. But till now I've found Facebook totally confusing. All the pokes and quizzes and causes and groups...whew.

Well, I'm back in town after almost two weeks away, and I had the chance while I was gone to totally sink myself into FB for a few hours...long enough to finally get it. I set up a FB page for Parent Hacks long ago but had no idea what to do with it -- well, now I do. I think. So, if you're a FB user, now's a great time to become a fan of Parent Hacks:

http://www.facebook.com/parenthacks

I've started a discussion there about what you hope to see on the Parent Hacks fan page -- I'd love to hear from you! And, if you're so inclined, please recommend the Parent Hacks page to your friends. And so on, and so on, and so on...

(Hoping you get the "...and so on..." reference from that old 70's shampoo commercial.)

Thanks all!

Bless your young little heart. :)

Thanks, Asha!

"set up FB Fan page for Simple Kids" is on my VERY long to-do list.

You have a blog... __WHY__ would you ever consider using twitter? Please, yes, really, explain that to me!

NoDaddy.com: Oh, don't even get me started on Twitter! And not just because my husband works there!

Twitter is where I "talk" to my blog friends and PH readers in real time. It's an ongoing, freewheeling, often profound, sometimes hilarious conversation. It's dynamic in a way blog comments can't be.

I use Twitter as another way to let people know about Parent Hacks updates. People who don't necessarily subscribe to the feed (or want to) still follow me on Twitter and like to hear about certain posts (and share them with friends).

Twitter's also a great place to post time-sensitive stuff (Amazon gold box deals that last an hour, or something on TV, whatever.)

Twitter's also a place to respond to OTHER people's conversation starters. Yes, I blog, but I don't want to participate only in the conversations I start.

I could go on...
