Facebook and other Social Media

We spoke about some of the issues of having a Facebook page at our meeting held on August 4, 2019.

This is a summary of the discussion and some of my thoughts on the matter. I am a bit of a Facebook fan and I do the Facebook pages for the S.E.H.A., Koo Wee Rup Swamp Historical Society, Trafalgar Truck Restorers Club, Lost Country Victoria; I contribute to the Lost Melbourne Facebook page and I also do the Casey Cardinia Heritage Facebook page as part of my work. Heather Arnold
