“Even though my daughter put me on facebook and twitter, I didn’t know much”

Joyce had a stroke several years ago and has written a book about how it has changed her life and what helped her regain her health. She is keen to get online and promote her book online, but she had some questions about how social media could help her.

With a techy helper, Joyce learned more about facebook and twitter. She learned the difference between your twitter followers and the people you follow on twitter, and she learned more about facebook: what is a timeline, what is someone’s wall, and how to use ‘likes’ and ‘emojis’ in addition to comments. Joyce also learned how to upload photos and videos into facebook and twitter posts.

At the Techy Tea Party, Joyce commented on a friend’s photo on facebook, and she wished her brother happy birthday on his wall. Joyce said, “It’s exciting to be on facebook”. Joyce says she aims to keep going with facebook and that it was good to learn that you can use facebook for your business. She was keen to look at how various charities use social media, such as the Stroke Association and Community Connections, and she says, “If I need to learn the business aspect of facebook I will – It’s worldwide!” Joyce’s longterm aim is to use social media to promote worldwide awareness of strokes.
