Visit BAC on Facebook: New “Timeline” Launched March 30th

2012 Issue 1
News in Brief

Facebook got a facelift. Since March 30th, all Facebook group pages, including the International Union’s, feature the social media giant’s new template, called Facebook Timeline. The revised format displays a group’s posts, history and other significant events chronologically, beginning with the most recent.

Be sure to check out the IU’s new look page at Not a Facebook member? It’s easy to sign up – just visit, click “sign up” and follow the instructions.

In addition to the IU communication vehicles like the Journal, which is published four times a year, and the BAC website –  – that is updated several times a week, BAC Secretary-Treasurer Henry Kramer says the IUBAC Facebook pages are a cost-effective, accessible way for the Union to post items of interest in near “real time” while providing an online forum for members’ comments. “We’ve seen an increasing number of fans on our Facebook page, where they can get the latest union and industry-related news and share it with their friends.” Kramer said. “It’s a useful communications channel for all.”
