Communicating with you: Newsletter, Social Networking and the TeenHelp Blog. - April 10th 2010, 02:01 PM

Hi everyone,

Today we're launching three new projects by which TeenHelp can communicate with you!

Newsletter

The first new project is a monthly Newsletter that aims to keep our users informed about what we're doing. The Newsletter will contain a lot of useful information about our current work, including updates to our site and services, work with our partners and affiliates, details of upcoming events, short bits of advice, interesting links and more! The Newsletter will be published on the 15th of each month. To subscribe to the Newsletter, click here and enter your email address in the appropriate form.

Social Networking

The second new project will be the launch of our new social networking campaign. We intend to begin posting regularly to both our Facebook (click here) and Twitter (click here) accounts. These posts will be mainly focused around work outside of TeenHelp, such as links to other organisations, volunteering opportunities, events, articles, pictures and videos that we find interesting and relevant to our users. This will be a great way for you to get information concerning charity work and the wider world of advice.

For this project there is also the opportunity for you to get involved yourself! We're hoping to put together a team of writers who can help us find information to publish. This would be particularly suited to anybody who does a lot of volunteering or charity work already (or who knows people who do), or those who have a strong interest in the news; basically, we want anyone who is usually privy to a lot of information that TeenHelp users might benefit from. This isn't a Staff position, so there's no need for an application, if you want to get involved just click here to PM me with a few lines about how you think you could contribute to this project.

Tip: If you're concerned about your privacy, Facebook's advanced privacy settings can be used to hide your groups entirely from your friends.

TeenHelp Blog

The third and final new project is a TeenHelp Blog. This will be used as a convenient repository of information that allows you to quickly and simply find out what we're up to. It will allow you to keep on top of our (now-) many avenues of information and will provide a place where you can discuss TeenHelp's announcements, notices, Avatar releases and Newsletter releases, among other things that you might not normally have the chance to discuss. Click here to visit the TeenHelp Blog.

I hope everyone finds these changes helpful.

TeenHelp will finally be active on Facebook! Haha, this made my day.

(Does anyone else think that when you enter your email address for the NewsLetter the @ sign looks funny? )

This is great ^____^ I followed TH on Twitter and have subscribed to the newsletter and blog I would join the Facebook group but none of my friends/family know about this place :/ I feel a little more comfortable here with them not knowing. I've bookmarked the group though

Don't forget that you can adjust your privacy settings so no one can see which groups you are a member of.

OK guys, to edit your privacy settings on groups so that only you can see what groups you are in:

1. click 'account' in the top right
2. click 'application settings'
3. find 'groups' and click 'edit settings'
4. click 'privacy' then 'custom'
5. set to 'only me' and save.
6. Where it says 'info section' click 'remove'

I think this is a great idea Rob.
I've signed up to the news letter and plan to add TH to Twitter and Facebook.

Could we make TH a private group so that we don't have to change all or settings or would that defeat the whole point? :P

I'll subscribe to the newsletter and blog! I'm already part of the facebook group, and I would follow on Twitter but I hardly go on it, I never have anything interesting to "tweet" about.

I love the idea of a facebook group and a twitter account, thing.
Joined the facebook group, but I don't use twitter much so I probably won't follow that.

And I've read the blog, the newsletter, and the SN post.
Though I still can't figure out how to set my Facebook groups so that people can't see them.

To hide your groups from your friends do this:

1. Click Account
2. From the dropdown, select Application Settings
3. find Groups
4. Click Edit settings
5. Change Privacy to 'Only Me'

Thank you. I read those instructions when you posted them further up in this thread, but somehow I got myself confused when I tried to follow them. All sorted now though.

No doubt it is the good way to be in touch with our old and new friends through social networking, these days everyone is using social networking and make a specific communities and groups in it.
So that our friend circle is also increasing through it.

Hey, guys! Just wanted to make a quick announcement about the Social Networking Team.

Rob is currently accepting applications for anyone who's interested in generating ideas for the Facebook and Twitter pages. You do NOT have to be a TeenHelp staff member in order to apply! =D To fill out an application, go to "Quick Links" and "Staff Applications"... it should be under "Projects".

The lovely Chess (x.Psychic Crisis.x) was the person responsible for bringing National Mental Health Counseling Week to your attention today... so if you'd like to be an active member of the Social Networking Team and contribute content as well, apply right now!
