Use of abacus and slide rule encouraged

As a reminder that I work for a university of science and technology, the following workshop was announced in a faculty/staff newsletter delivered to campus email accounts this evening.

After piquing people's curiosity about social networks in last month's IT seminar, we received requests for a session on how to use Facebook, one of the largest social networking sites. If you'd like to get started on Facebook (or want to know more), this session is for you.

In addition to a Facebook tour, this seminar will present how to register, establish your profile, and find your way around Facebook as well as information on its many features (the wall, groups, fan clubs, settings, photo options, finding friends, third-party applications, etc.). As time permits, you'll also learn about mobile use and its potential in an academic setting.

Attendees do not need to pre-register. Just bring yourself and your questions.
Dr. Scott McLeod, a professor in our Educational Administration program, summed up my response quite efficiently.

Scott McLeod's twitter advice was less than enlightening as well, so he may want to watch what he says about ISU's Facebook seminar.

It does keep the conversation rolling. I like Scott's goal to be a "trusted voice" on Twitter. Thanks for sharing the link, Anonymous.
