View Full Version : MWObs on Facebook

Hi folks,

At fundraising conferences, I keep hearing about social networking sites being yet another avenue for organizations like ours to reach out to potential donors. So, I decided to investigate a bit.

At best, I am a Facebook rookie. However, I managed to set up the Observatory as an official "Cause" on Facebook. If you use Facebook and want to see the Obs' presence there, go to: http://apps.facebook.com/causes/beneficiaries/18217

I think you can also find us by clicking on "browse causes" and searching for the Obs. You may need to download the Cause application before you try any of this... but I'm not quite sure just yet. (Rookie.)

In any event, you can sign up and promote the Obs, add us as a cause on your Facebook page and invite your own friends to join in support of what we do. Go for it!

Who knows-- it may work great or it might bomb. But I believe that this organization, rooted in science and technology, needs to be out there wherever it can.

Thanks-- and please correct me if I have any of this info wrong!

All the best,

MWO Executive Director
