Drowning in Social Media

Posted by: Rick Cain in From the Lens Room

Just a quick note to say that I am back. I didn't realize how long it had been since I had blogged, and so I thought I would post a quick note. Sometime earlier in the year my kids convinced me to sign onto Facebook to keep in touch with them. Since then I have gotten in touch with folks I haven't heard from since high school. But the interesting thing is that lighthouse enthusiasts have started finding me as well. This was particularly true when I signed on with Twitter. I now tweet with fellow lighthouse folks from around the country. The St. Augustine Lighthouse also has it's own Facebook page. So if you are on FB or make a habit of tweeting, look for us as we would love to know what you are up to. Just keeping up with Twitter and Facebook is enough of a challenge for this old guy that I almost forgot about my blog. Well no more! I am back on it.

You may also want to check out the Split Rock Lighthouse blog. My buddy Lee Radzak, Historic Site Manager at the station there, just started it a couple of months ago. Split Rock is already one of the most beautiful places on the planet, and then someone went and put a lighthouse there. I will do my best to get Lee on FB and Twitter as well, but things are a bit delayed up there in the wilds of Northern Minnesota, so we must be patient. You will want to check out some of his photos on their website as well.

If you ask for followers on Twitter, you really should have a link to your page. :)

But I remember now, I did find you through search, and followed you for a couple weeks, but didn't get a follow in return.

Also a link to the Facebook page would be a good idea. :)

Point taken. I have added the link. I am still coming up to speed on all of the etiquette. Sorry I did not follow you. I will fix that. Thanks

Nice post. Pretty good info for everyone who's interested in social networking.
