Project Appleseed Facebook pages
« on: February 13, 2014, 10:11:58 PM »
I would like to take a moment to introduce myself.  I am relatively new to the Project Appleseed community, having attending my first Appleseed in November, 2013 and second only last weekend.  I  accepted an Orange hat on Sunday and look forward to learning along side such a great group of people.

I have a fair amount of academic and professional training and experience in marketing and advertising and have been in touch with Fred over the past several months to offer my expertise in these areas.  Fred has asked that I work on developing the foundation for a marketing effort on a national level.  It is my goal to develop key messages and push them out to a broad yet carefully segmented audience across various media.  The easiest way to begin on a limited budget is through social media.  I have done some preliminary research into our current social media presence on Facebook and was surprised to find 23 Facebook pages and/or groups for Project Appleseed.  The lack of consistency of message and visual look and feel give me cause for concern.  In order to be effective on a national level, we will need to present a carefully crafted message within a consistent system of visual identity.  Our current way of doing this leaves too much room for error and can place the RWVA at risk.

I would like to ask you help in letting me know the name(s) of the person or people in your region or state who currently run any Project Appleseed social media account (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.). 

Our plan is to migrate all users of general Project Appleseed Facebook pages to a newly-created official Project Appleseed page.  After users are migrated to the official page, we will ask that the existing pages be shut down.  I realize state and regional pages are important and do not believe these should be shut down.  However, it is important that these state and regional pages adhere to a set of standards for messaging and the use of approved logos, images, and other design elements.  We will provide guidelines for approved messaging and images for these pages at a later time.

Thank you for understanding.

I am trying to help the Alaska page get off the ground.  There are a few eager volunteers, but they need training.

Tell your Pacific Northwest facebook friends to "like" and post in the Northwest Region Project Appleseed page.

Who's Isaac Davis?
If men were angels, no government would be necessary. If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary. (James Madison)

"Young man, what we meant in going for those Redcoats was this: we always had governed ourselves and we always meant to. They didn't mean we should."
(Captain Levi Preston, of the Danvers militia, at age 91, remembering the day)

That it is an indispensable duty which we owe to God, our country, ourselves and posterity, by all lawful ways and means in our power to maintain, defend and preserve those civil and religious rights and liberties, for which many of our fathers fought, bled and died, and to hand them down entire to future generations.  Suffolk Resolves, September 9, 1774, attributed to Dr. Joseph Warren

Who is Isaac Davis?!  Did I really just read that from you Wally?!  &)

In all seriousness, Isaac Davis is a page administrator for all official AS FB pages; this was done to ensure that an inactive FB page could be bump-started by a national-level volunteer, or in the case of a hi-jack, that same national-level volunteer could clean up the mess if the locals were unavailable.
