Hi Everyone,

I found out something interesting while attending a workshop for nonprofits. This was one in a series and that day it was about using social media. Just by accident when I telling about our organization, one of those attending said yes, he had seen the article in the newspaper about us. I remarked that I was disappointed they had the wrong link The link was on care for damaged photos that appeared in the forum and was in error. Nothing of the link was the same as what I gave and it looked like someone had been typing on the wrong keys. Someone answered that the link would work and what the paper had done was shorten the URL and they gave me a website that will do that if you need to conserve space:
