Changes in Social Media

For those who don't know, Facebook now lets you use a username to identify yourself rather than facebook.com/people/some-random-dude/8972754553141592653. The problem is, I don't know if I should be luke.holzmann, or lukeholzmann, or luke-holzmann, or luke_holzmann, or just "luke" (wait, someone already took that).

Thankfully, that choice wasn't so hard for Sonlight. That's right, Sonlight's Facebook page is now facebook.com/sonlight. How cool is that?

Pretty cool.

As the "Media Relations Specialist" here at Sonlight, part of my job is to keep up on the changes in the social media tools. Facebook's update was one of those changes. Thankfully, I remembered that I needed to update it at midnight--some 14 hours after I was supposed to--and "sonlight" was still available.

If you hear about any major changes in the social media world, I'd love to know. Feel free to tell me about what you hear either here, in an email, or over on Facebook.

Oh, and be sure to let your friends know that they can become a fan of Sonlight on Facebook, write up reviews and post pictures too. And you can read these blog posts there as well (Hello, Facebook friends!).

lukeholzmann all one word definitely. I never if those other characters should be - or _ when people have those.

I would go with the all in one. Of course I just read the other comment and saw you went with it.

I feel like a cool kid now.

We celebrated Box Day today - I'll post pictures soon. Hopefully they'll make a great marketing tip for you some day. lol

Melonie said...

Marketing blurb, not tip! Too much multi-tasking. ;-)

That's cute. A struggle over an online name. It is so true, though. Thought for the day: Even in the virtual world, we still struggle to find and identify ourselves.

Luke said...

Melonie, I saw that! Happy Box Day! And feel free to submit your pictures to the Sonlight Photo Contest! <smile> Always happy to have more marketing blurbs from people who use Sonlight <smile>.

True, Shawnee. And I think the major reason for that is because so many people can bump into us online. In normal, daily interactions, we adjust to each person. Online, we have to choose "a face" to show the world. Thanks for commenting, and I look forward to getting to know you better in the coming days! <smile>
