The club’s Facebook presence has been reorganised to make it more appropriate for club members to access club information.
There are two Facebook areas. One is called a ‘Secret Group’ and is named ‘We’re Outward Bound‘. The other is a Facebook ‘Page’ in the club’s name ‘Mitsubishi 4WD OWners Club of Western Australia‘.
WHAT IS A SECRET GROUP?
Facebook allows people to join a group on Facebook which restricts all content to only those people in the group.
Members can post comments, images and videos to the group.
The group can also be used to buy and sell 4WD and camping related property. However, the person posting the ad must be the point of sale.
The content (anything you post into the group) can only be seen by the group members.
You can only be invited into the group by existing group members. Therefore if you want to join the group, use Facebook Messenger or email me your Facebook username and I’ll add you in.
WHAT IS A FACEBOOK PAGE?
Facebook Page is a means of promoting the organisation in the social network and can be seen by anyone on Facebook.
Some businesses use Facebook Pages as their corporate web site. However, the Mitsubishi Club Facebook Page is only used as a secondary web presence to the club’s main web site. Only designated people can post material to the page. The benefit of the page is that it is more readily visible to people who use Facebook.
TRIP NOTES AND TRIP IMAGES
Members can use the Facebook group to make comments on a trip, both before and after the trip. Use the group to upload images from the trips, however please restrict the number of images to just a handfull that best represent the trip.
Trip leaders can also post their trip report to the group. When a trip report has been posted it will be copied and edited to this web site by the Media Officer.
If you do not use Facebook, you can still email your trip reports and images to the Media Officer’s email firstname.lastname@example.org
