As part of our of our outreach efforts, DIAA is trying to leverage Facebook so we can raise awareness about our organization to the general public, engage with more potential DIAA members, and provide additional benefits to our current membership, all while respecting DIA mission and core values. We have approached this by creating two completely separate areas on Facebook.
First is our public Facebook page, which went live the second week of June and is called by our formal name, Defense Intel Alumni Association. This page is providing information of interest to our members and lets the public know about our activities and us. Because it is public, we have restricted the ability to post on the page to a team of editors.¯ This is so that the information posted on the page is kept relevant, civil and respectful. Nonetheless, anyone who is on Facebook can see our posts and are able comment on them. So far, this page is being well received. If you are on Facebook, we ask that you visit the page, and give us a like.¯ You can reach our page on Facebook by searching our name our or you can get there directly from the internet by going to this url: http://www.facebook.com/diaalumni .
Very different than our Facebook page is our Facebook group. Our group is called DIAA Member Group. This is a member only group exclusive to current DIAA members. Everything about the group is hidden from nonmembers, so it cannot be searched for on Facebook. All members of the group can post and comment, allowing us to communicate in a closed Forum. Because of our security settings, you can only join the group if you are invited. If you have not been invited into the group yet, over the coming weeks we will be contacting you to do so. You do need a Facebook account to join the group and membership in the group is strictly voluntary, but we do hope you will accept our invitation to join. Please just remember to abide by our Rules of Engagement¯ posted on the group page.
