About two weeks ago I created a Facebook page along with the president of my step team. We decided to create the group page in order to promote our step show which took place last Thursday 4/21. The step show was held on campus at the Baptist Temple where other step teams from different schools competed against each other for a cash prize of $500.00. We were so shocked at the turn out and how well the teams performed. Being as though we are non Greek step team it is hard to put on step shows and actually get people to attend. I decided to create the group page so that we can reach out to not only the teams that performed in our show but other steps teams as well. It was a hard process in trying to contact each team via email.
From my homepage I clicked on create a group on the left hand column of the homepage. I clicked on customize at the top of the page to create the group name which is “Ladies of Elegance Step Organization”. Next I added members to the page which mainly consisted of the members of the step team. The group page is open where all the members can invite their own friends.
Creating a Facebook group page is pretty simple. I have learned a great deal in this class on how social media helps in networking, therefore my team can use this Face book page as a networking source to reach out to other step teams and to hopefully find out about other steps shows in which we can participate in.
