    3. What better way to communicate, collaborate, or otherwise share expertise and effort than through the medium of cyberspace!

    4. Early attendees of Iowa CHAT meetings expressed a desire for an online location where those involved could: • Share documents • Share photos • Share videos • Publicize events • Exchange emails • Hold a public conversation • Chat privately • Network We realized that rapidly growing and freely available social networking media websites, such as Facebook, would fulfill this need.

    5. Facebook is Five • In February 2004, Harvard student Mark Zuckerberg, along with some classmates, launched the social network in his dorm room. • It was originally most popular with high school and college-age students and is now the leading social media website. • Facebook now has 150 million members, and its fastest-growing demographic is 30 and up. • Feed-focused re-design in Fall 2008 boosted interest in the phenomenon.

    6. Meet Facebook • Sign up is easy at www.facebook.com. • When you have an account established, you can search for Iowa Culturehistoryarts or CHAT—Culture History Arts Teams for Iowa

    13. Google Calendar • We use Google Calendar as another way for our regions to post information about upcoming events.

    14. Google Docs & Spreadsheets • We use Google Docs as an online “parking lot” for electronic files that we want to share with select individuals. For example, contact lists of our regional team leaders.

    15. CHAT Event Reporting • The Governor’s Office has asked DCA to assemble a database of all “cultural events” occurring in the State of Iowa for fy09. • We’ve made use of the Survey feature of the Constant Contact service to achieve this goal.

    16. The survey can be found at http://survey.constantcontact.com/survey/a07e2fb9msffox98a61/start and looks like this • It consists of ten easy-to-fill-out questions • Answers will give us a detailed, yet concise, look at each event

    17. You can only report one event per submission and must click the “Finish” button once your entry is complete. • Click the link to the form to start reporting another event. • Entries are collected in a database that DCA staff can retrieve and use.

    18. It’s possible to expedite filling out the form by dragging text from a source document or website to the different data entry boxes.

    19. CHAT is a community builder • It’s up to the individual users to make it grow and be useful • The ease of interaction, variety of ways to interact, and low cost make the use of social networking media a no-brainer • Post progress of your local efforts • Report cultural events in your area • Reach out and contact others with questions or ask for help • Have fun with it!
