Facebook? Yes. Thank you, New Screen Savers

This is not a woodworking related post, but for those of you who know me, you know my thoughts on Facebook.

Well, I've come to the realization that I need to join tht 21st century and participate in the world's dominate social media platform.

Doing it required some help. I reached out to the +The New Screen Savers+Leo Laporte and +Liberty Madison were kind enough to give me this Facebook primer.

The whole episode is great, but to see me skip ahead to the 40 minute mark.

Now that I'm there, please check me out on Facebook. I'm hiding in place site with the user name Dyami Plotke.

Also, now that I'm there, the Modern Woodworkers Association Facebook page will be a bit more active.

See you on the interweb.
