Links to social media pages have been added to the website to make them easier to find. Unless you have the exact address, finding someone’s social media account can be difficult via Google because there’s so many people, worldwide, sharing the same name. And the Twitter search facility is close to useless, even failing when you do have the exact url.
- LinkedIn (FionaLake) – LinkedIn is a business networking site and I’ve built up a network which includes more than 1,900 people. Most are involved in agriculture (Australia or overseas) or they have a specific interest in rural Australia. Don’t hesitate to send me an invitation if you’re involved or interested in agriculture and you’d like to join my LinkedIn network. Don’t forget, though, to explain clearly why we should join networks.
- Twitter (@FionaLakeAus) Up-to-the-minute ag and rural news and opinion. Many interesting people sending out very interesting messages!
- (Facebook (FionaLakeAus) Admit I only use Facebook sporadically; Twitter and LinkedIn are my favourites.
- Google+ Not yet used much…my hands are a bit overfull.
- Youtube (FionaLakeAus) – No videos I’ve filmed (yet) but it does have a growing collection of excellent videos made by others, from the Peterson Farm Bros to Australian but USA-based horse trainer Robin Wiltshire (Turtle Ranch, Wyoming). Most of these videos are rural/agriculture related and some have taken quite a bit of searching to find. If you discover any great ag videos online please don’t hesitate to let me know so they can be shared and save others time otherwise spent seeking quality.
- Pinterest (Fiona Lake) – The fastest growing social media site at present. I’ve been collecting photos of my favourite interests here – especially in relation to good design.
So the website is easier to read on smart phones a mobile version of www.fionalake.com.au is now available, by clicking on the ‘view mobile’ link at the bottom of the Home Page.
There is a small number of the most commonly recognised photos included in the public pages of this website, many dozens of exhibition & event photos of people standing in front of framed images, several dozen art-quality photos in the online art gallery (accessible only to existing customers), plus a tiny number of photos on social media sites. When my website was first launched in 2003 many photos were included all over the website and the online art gallery was open to all. Unfortunately within a short time many photos had been copied and reproduced all over the place, even printed in commercial documents such as illustrations in product catalogues. Changes were obviously essential if I was to be able to continue taking photos on outback cattle stations in future as these expensive and time-consuming trips are funded by photos sales. The outback photos on the website are an accurate indication of the types of photos included in the books, however a money-back guarantee of satisfaction is also offered to book purchasers. If you have any queries don’t hesitate to contact me.
