Family Tech: Create a Facebook page to reach groups, teams you are involved in - February 19, 2016

Do you have a church group, child’s athletic team, maybe a home-based business and you want to reach members, parents and customers?

It used to be I’d suggest creating a website to coordinate all the information you want to put out. While that’s still a good idea, it is always best to go where the people already are.

And today, that means Facebook, which has more than a billion and a half users. You most likely are one. Most likely a parent of every child on the team is on Facebook. 

I have a love/hate relationship with Facebook, as do many. I love how it lets me stay in contact with friends from different eras of my life and different parts of the globe that I otherwise would have lost track.

And I hate its seemingly “big brotherness.” It is never quite clear what others are seeing about me. They see the likes I make, but who sees what and why is not always clear.

And I do not see every post my friends make, as they do not see all of mine. Facebook’s algorithm for the feed is both a secret and Byzantine.

Besides your standard Facebook feed, you can also create your own Facebook page. A page can be for a business, group, team, hobby or whatever. My vet has one that lists their hours, a map to their location and interesting posts that keep their name in mind.
