The Week in Facebook - 8/22/2008

This is a weekly feature which will document some of the genea-blogger happenings as they relate to Facebook®.

- While I was away in Lake Tahoe for the past few days, there have been seven more members added to the Genea-Bloggers group since last Friday. We now have 140 members! Please remember to look at the member list and if you see someone new, invite them to be a friend, read their blog, and tell them "welcome!"

- A special thanks to footnoteMaven (yes, it is one word - like Madonna, Cher and other estimable divas) who has created the GeneaBloggers on Facebook Blog List over at Facebook® Bootcamp for Genea-Bloggers. Check it out and make sure that your information is correctly listed!

- A heads up to users of the Google Calendar for Genea-Bloggers at Google Calendars: I am considering removal of the calendar and only entering Genea-Blogger events in one location which would be Facebook®. Right now it is not too much of a hardship to maintain events in both locations but as the group grows and events proliferate, I may not be able to keep up. I know - hard to believe, right? Some advantages of the Google Calendar is the ability to embed it in your blog and to include the events with your other Google Calendar events. Anyway, there is a poll over at at Facebook® Bootcamp for Genea-Bloggers please take time to vote and voice your opinion.

Again, if anyone has a question as to how to use Facebook®, I'd be happy to help. You can always email me directly but if you post your question as a Discussion Topic at the Genea-Bloggers group, you might find that other members also have the same questions.
