The Australian Spitfire Association has been on Facebook since around Dec 2017. Currently, this page posts updates as they occur on our website. We encourage you to connect with us on Facebook in addition to this website, as Facebook is where our members can socialise. Feel free to link up with us, to discuss the history of the Spitfire and the happenings within the Association.
What follows here is a quick guide to connecting with our Facebook page. Don’t worry if you have never used Facebook before, all you need is an email address to get started.
Step 1 – Create an account
Navigate to www.facebook.com and you will see this screen. Fill out your details, think of a unique but memorable password, and click the green button. An email will be sent to your nominated email address. Once you click the link inside the email sent to you, your account is created.
Step 2 – Log into your Facebook account
Using the same picture above, navigate your way back to www.facebook.com, and enter your email address and new password in the blue bar at the top of the screen.
Step 3 – Configuring your Facebook profile
A full guide on configuring your Facebook is beyond the scope of this article, but spend some time adding some details and maybe a photo, so that we can recognise you. A word of warning, Facebook will ask for lots of details that give it access to your emails, even phone contacts if you are on a mobile. If you are in doubt, you can always skip any or all steps. To come back to it later, click your name in the blue bar at the top of the screen, or just keep an eye out for messages along the lines of: “Your profile is 20% complete, click here…”. Be sure to keep control of your personal information, only give Facebook what you wish to be public.
Step 4 – Searching for Australian Spitfire Association
Finding us is easy. Again, in the blue bar at the top of the page, start typing “australian spitfire association” in the search box (called the Facebook Graph). When you can see it, you can stop typing, and click the entry of the same name that appears.
You will see this screen. Click “Australian Spitfire Association” where the arrow indicates.
Step 5 – Follow Us
When our page opens up, you will see just below the main image is a button bar, for Like and Follow. Click both.
“Liking” the page will show, on your profile, that you have liked us. “Following” the page will allow you to be notified of updates to our site when they happen. If you are really keen, click the down arrow next to Following, and click “See First” to keep us at the top of your news feed.
Both Like and Follow buttons will be used by Facebook to show you other Spitfire content that you may find interesting, namely other articles, pages, groups, advertising etc.
From here, you may make comments on the page, and participate in conversations as they start to occur. Keep an eye out for notifications from Spitfire Association, and our posts in your newsfeed.
See you on Facebook : )
