Facebook: Let’s Not Reinvent the Wheel!
Using the FILES feature on the International ACAC Facebook Page

Great insights and resources are shared everyday on the International ACAC Facebook page. On many occasions, topics and questions are simply answered within the comments section of a particular post. No matter how great these answers might be to those in need, the posts themselves have a shelf life of mere hours until they are buried in an avalanche of other posts. A little know, or perhaps a not widely used feature, is the Files button located on the left hand side (or top menu bar) of the International ACAC Facebook page.
When members post a document, powerpoint or other forms of communication in their responses, attachments are automatically logged and listed under the "Files" section. Instead of reinventing the wheel building or creating a presentation or handout, having members share/upload their resources directly into posts could make many of our lives just a little easier. Already, there are useful and fabulous resources posted here.
