Mother-of-An-Angel Friendship Network
Technology Aid For Website
Local Connections link… the web page introduces local mothers to the weekly community meetings. It also provides links to organizations that provide professional support groups or counseling since that is not the purpose of this Friendship Network.
Local Members link… to provide ease of access to all communication methods associated with each community meeting participant, this page has direct links to personal email, myspace.com sites or websites.
Online Connection link … this page provides links to local, national and international organizations that offer extensive educational information, online connection opportunities and a myriad of practical resource links to use or share.
Discussion Boards… A forum is a group of people communicating on a similar topic through internet tools such as a Discussion Board. You must register on the site to become a member of the forums. Once registered, you logon then post comments and respond to other postings. Postings are entered or read whenever convenient so there is no schedule. If you “Subscribe” then emails of new postings will be sent to your email account with a direct link to the website.
Chat Rooms… similar to the above, an online connection is available here but the difference is that there are scheduled times to meet with other participants. The chat room approach is real time, back and forth discussion through keyboard texting or verbally with a headphone/microphone.
Social Networking… personal sites that contain ways to share comments, pictures, videos. Go to the sites such as myspace.com to set one up.
Comfort In Words
