About Facebook

Facebook does not need to be intimidating. You can become a Facebook user even if you have no intention of using it for anything else other than participating in our GVA pages. You will need to create an account by signing up on Facebook using your own name so we recognize you and allow you to belong to our pages. When you have created your basic page set up, you will need to do a search at the top of the Facebook Home Page to find our GVA pages. We currently have three different pages you will want to find: 1)Grand Valley Artists (page), 2)Grand Valley Artists (group), and 3)GVA Artists Hunkering DOWN and MAKING ART! (group). You will need to ask for permission to join the group pages by clicking on "Ask to Join" (or something along those lines), and we will allow you "in" shortly. When you have been given permission to join the pages, you will then be able to add photos of your work, comment on other people's contributions, etc. You can also navigate your way to the Photos (in the Media section) and the Albums (a link on the Media page). Lordy...this sounds much more complicated than it is! Please feel free to contact Mary Marin (616-443-0362) and I will be happy to talk you through it! I'm available from 7 a.m. till about 7 p.m. most days, but don't tell anybody.
