Social media


I feel compelled to warn the kind people of the universe that I am full on entering the world of social media.  For several years I just tried to pretend that it didn't exist.  And that I had no use for it.  And I kept trying to shake off that nagging feeling of being an old fuddy-duddy that didn't understand all this new fangled technology.

But,  I'm now Facebooked up and Linkedin.  You'll even see easy ways to reach me at those places right here on the blog.  See at the top right?  And over there on the left?

Lucky for you I don't own a mobile device that would let me be all Twitter-fied.

Then again, you never know what tomorrow brings.

Stop by my Facebook page and let me know ya like me, eh?

Cause I'm feeling a little vulnerable.  Naked and exposed.

Eeeek!

welcome to the dark side...

Jan said...

Looks good. I "liked" you. It's such a dorky term, I liked the "fan" thing better.

I believe I am the last person on the planet not on Facebook. I like you anyway!

Hey Dana! :o)
I wish I could face book with you. It is actually cut off from access in my house! Looks like we will be blogging friends instead. :o)
Have a great night!
Sincerely ~ Tricia

I like you!!

Thanks for the e-vites, too! But I am not as cool as you and am not on Facebook, LinkedIn, mySpace, or Twitter. It made me feel special, though.... :-)

It's all good Dana, you got some good support to back you up. Thanks for the invites!

OK, I just sent 1365 fan page suggestions to my "boutique friends" on FB. That should give a little boost to your ORBC fan page statistics! ;-)

Shorty said...

I'm a recent convert, too, my friend. I'm glad to be able to follow you in lots of ways now!

Elissa said...

Terriaw said...

so happy to be linked in with you! Now I'm off to check out your FB page too. They are fun ways to connect with people, although I love blogging, and Twitter is starting to grow on me too.

I feel the same way. I've entertained the idea of starting a separate FB page for my blog, haven't gotten that far yet. I guess I'm still feeling a little fuddy duddy.

Hi Dana - the online marketing class is definitely on. June 24th (Thurs), 8 pm CST. You can email Karen if you want more info - she is in the process of listing the class on her website and if you tell her Tina Peterson suggested her she'll know what you're talking about.

Those strawberries on this page, look awesome! I'm hungry...
