Last night we had our 1000th member join the Facebook Group !!!
I have had a few emails from both contributors and followers of the blog asking how they can access the Facebook Group "Our Scarlet Letter Years" - so I have put together a photo trail of the steps needed to join via a PC. An app on your tablet or smart phone may be different but it will be the same principles.
I have done this with the privacy settings at their highest as I know that not everyone wants to share personal information
Search for facebook.com and create a new account. You can use what name you want and this is the name that will show on your account.
If you do not want to share your date of birth with Facebook opt for a random date. You will have to use a valid email address.
Click create an account
If you do not want to search for friends - "SKIP THIS STEP"
You will now be taken through a series of questions and you are able to skip them all if you do not want to provide the information to Facebook.
Again if you do not want to add a photo there is no need. I have a photo of Millie, my first boxer as my profile photo.
On the left hand side you will see some options running down, opt for privavcy.
You are now able to select who see any posts you make.
and who can send you friend requests.
who can look you up
There is more to explore but this is all we need to do to get you up and running.
Please press the "Confirm Now" button to compleete the sign up process.
You will receive an email and you will need to confirm the account from the email received.
If you want to look for friends you can now do so.
If you would like to find our group you need to press the three little white lines towards the top left hand corner
A search box will open and start to type in Our Scarlet Letter Years - we will pop up before you finish typing.
The group is closed so only members can see any activity so you will need to join - just below the header photo press join group. This will send a message to either Jo, Krista or myself. As soon as one of us picks it up we will authorise it and then you will be able to read the posts and join in all the activity.
Something VERY exciting will be happening later in the week ahead so please join us.
If you have any problems please email me and I will try my best to help - firstname.lastname@example.org
