FaceBook Changes That Don't Make Us Happy

If you want to stay abreast of what we are doing here at the Hawthorne Hotel, following us on our blog may be the best way.  Here is why those of you who are simply "friends" on FaceBook may miss out on what we have on tap for you:

1.  Just by accident I recently learned that only a small percentage of our friends on FB are seeing our posts.  This was done by design, by FB to enhance their revenues.

2.  If we want all our friends to see everything we post, we have to pay for that privilege.  We will pay for that for this post, to get the word out.

3.  A lot of what we do is simply for fun, and conversational, there on FB, but you won't be seeing it all going forward if that is the only place you follow us.  It seems FB will be selecting some approximately 20% of you to see our posts.

4.  Therefore we will make some changes so that all of the fun things we would normally post on FB will be posted here on our blog.

Please help us spread the word about this change to FaceBook, and encourage anyone you know who wants to keep up with the Hawthorne Hotel is subscribe to our Blog posts.

Unhappy with FaceBook,

    Well that is really back door skeeezy if you ask me. Once their shares value started dropping they figured out a way to make MORE cash. Sad to say but this is just the tip of the iceberg. See you in August!
