Volunteers and Help Needed for Alzheimer's Reading Room

The simple facts are I need some help. And now finally, I am in a position to ask for help and accept help.

Volunteers and Help Needed for Alzheimer's Reading Room
If possible, I would like to identify people that can and would help me to move the Alzheimer's Reading Room forward.

There is just to much to do and I can no longer handle it on my own.

If you are interested in volunteering, please send me an email and we can try and get the ball rolling.

Volunteer to Help ARR

You can volunteer for a specific task, or just to help. All help is appreciated.

The list of things I need to get done is long. Today lets focus on Facebook and Sneezing.

1. Facebook

I have a Facebook friends page -- Alzheimer's Reading Room. The limit for Facebook friends is 5,000. Somehow I have 5,300. Go figure. Last week 85 people tried to Friend me. I cannot Friend them back because I am over the limit.

I also have a Faqcebook Page -- Alzheimer's Reading Room. People are trying to Like Me but when I open the box it says - Make Admin. Should I do it or not? I don't know. I need help to get my page organized and working properly.

I also have a Facebook Group Page - Alzheimer's Reading Room On Facebook I made that Group Page a long time ago, I don't know how to make it work. Do you know how to make a group page work? How do I tell all my Facebook Friends that I have a Group Page?

Do I need a new Facebook Page separate from the others? I don't know.

Would one or more of you be interested in becoming an Admin for these pages and help make them work correctly?

If so use the email button at the top of this article and volunteer. Lets talk, or interact.

2. Sneezers

I need Sneezers. People who are willing to "sneeze" on message boards, or in articles on the Internet to alert Alzheimer's caregivers new and old that we have a knowledge base of over 3,800 article. You can search all these articles by keyword, and by using the search box on the right hand side of every webpage on the ARR.

Her is an example of a Sneeze.
The Alzheimer's Reading Room is the number one source of life news and information for the entire Alzheimers and related dementia community. We have over 3,800 articles in our Alzheimer's knowledge database. You can search for information and learn how to understand, cope, and communicate with persons living with Alzheimer's by using the search box on the right hand side of every page on the Alzheimer's Reading Room.
Something along those lines.

Every day Alzheimer's caregivers are asking for help and information on message boards. In most cases we, the Collective Brain of the Alzheimer's Reading, can help them. And, we have information that can help them.

Feel free to start sneezing on your own right now.

If you would like to volunteer and become a "Sneezer" use the email link at the top of this article and we can get started working together.

There are other things on my mind.

For example, how to get more people to click the red G+ button, and share using the the buttons at the top of every article. I just changed them to try and make it easier. It is now very easy to email the link to an article. Try it.

Feedback welcome.

Help needed.
