Wanted: Someone Who Knows Facebook Better Than I Do!*

*Which is everyone.

Hear ye! Hear ye! I am in need of some help, y'all.

Any guerilla out there willing to take on the DCGG Facebook page? It's super easy... Right now nothing ever happens on the DCGG FB page, so anything you do will be an improvement. The bar has been set low so no matter what you do, you'll be a tremendous success! Guaranteed greatness, you gotta like that.

The problem is this: I don't understand Facebook. For someone who works in marketing, my inability to "get" Facebook is somewhat comical, but it be the truth, people! I don't "get" Facebook. All those Friends, all those Pokes, all those News Feeds and Notifications! Bwah! It makes my head swim, and not in that fun way that happens when you've taken too much Nyquil.

So! I need someone who will periodically check Facebook and respond to Friend Requests and Notifications, and who will post some things about gardening and stuff! You know, make our page cool and whatnot, so that people will think that I'm - *ahem!* *cough* WE'RE - cool and whatnot. I won't pay you, so you can be as slack as you like. Set your own goals and be fruitful! Or be not fruitful! Just so long as your not fruitful is more fruitful than my not fruitful. See? Low bar. Guaranteed greatness.

Seriously. I need help. Interested? Drop me a note and let me know if you'd like to manage the D.C. Guerilla Gardeners' Facebook page. You'd be my hero! And while I can't pay you, I CAN buy you a cup of coffee. Or a beer. Or a Cosmopolitan. Or lemonade. Or something. Anything beverage-y. I'll even throw in a pastry or two.

Gracias in advance, my greeny guerillas!


  1. Hi, Theresa. I can't do your page for you, but as the new communications person for one of DC's loveliest gardens (5.5 acres surrounding Tudor Place Historic House, in Georgetown), I was just over there. Your Facebook "page" is actually a "profile," meant for individuals. Who are told not to "friend" you unless they know you. So setting up an official page is not just easy, but will bring you lots more action. Good luck! Please visit our page and send a message, or tweet me, if you want to discuss.

  2. MANDY KATZ! You are SO BANG ON CORRECT. I set up the DCGG Facebook page incorrectly but Facebook was a beast and wouldn't let me fix it. I tried everything I could think of but nothing worked. I eventually contacted the Facebook support people and they? Well, they never bothered to respond. EVER.

    The DCGG's new Facebook guru is aware of the problem and is working on it, if she hasn't fixed it already. But just in case, I'll forward her your comment. THANKS!

    P.S. I'd love to meet up with you to talk about your work for Tudor Place's communications! Interested?
