Julie will tell her story, in her own words, in the next post but I will cut right to the end and speak of the Have Wheelchair Will Travel (HWWT) Facebook Page of which I am totally in awe.
That page has 6490 Likes! To place that in context my page has 171. We are in the presence of Internet royalty.
For readers that are not on Facebook consider the following:
- Facebook Pages are always completely open to read. Take a look at the HWWT Page and scroll down to see Julie's posts. You can read anything there including the comments
- The people on Facebook have a conversation through their comments and replies. Here is one post that garnered 25 comments. There was a lot to say
That is the real power of Facebook - the conversations that happen. New people are drawn in when people pass the post on, using the Share button, to their circle of friends.
Of course joining Facebook has it's downsides. The risks to your personal info and the confusing mass of things that appear out of the blue from your friends. I urge people to join anonymously and with no friends simply to be part of these conversations. I call this Zero Friends Facebook and I am using ZFF for local community engagement.Like the HWWT Facebook Page.
