I attended a professional development conference in Charleston earlier this month. I learned that some university development professionals are using Facebook to connect with their alumni and raise funds. The next week US News and World Report says many corporations are doing the same.
So. . .being the entrepreneur that I think I am~ I went to Facebook on Tuesday to check it out. I had to set up an account to view other accounts. The set up asked me if I wanted to invite my AIM friends to view my facebook - I thought for a minute and clicked YES, thinking that the only friends I have in my AIM are you guys here.
WELL~ I forgot that I added ALL of oldest son's friends to my account to monitor who he talks to - obviously, I haven't monitored in awhile. . . . Every single one of his friends were notified and invited to view my Facebook!~! HE WAS MORTIFIED~ What creepy Mom asks teenagers to view her Facebook? So. . my solution was to tell all of them what happened. . . EVEN MORE MORTIFIED~ Now not only am I creepy, I'm stupid!
I learned how to move around and have connected with some alumni - I may not get many gifts or donations for my job, but it sure is fun. Come check me out and join the fun.
