Wordwatchers joins Facebook

October 12, 2011

Well, it had to happen eventually didn’t it?  Wordwatchers now has a group page on Facebook.  It’s currently open to everybody on Facebook (an estimated 700 million individuals) so this may change when we start getting 100s of requests per day (one can hope (or is that fear?)).

The members of Wordwatchers who are currently also on Facebook have been dragged in as the initial members, so I don’t look like billy-no-mates.  Next part of the plan is to drag in the Alumni members (doesn’t Alumni sound much nicer than “ex”?) and then other authors I also know on Facebook.

After that, who knows, perhaps one big virtual writers love-in!
