2013: WELCOME FACEBOOK VISITORS!

With "social networking" becoming a household word among those of us who are computer literate, I find a very encouraging trend emerging with Facebook's "IT'S A TRENTON THING," wherein Facebook's many visitors add photos and comments targeting that wonderful city of my childhood. I have also decided to begin posting on Facebook with articles and photos from "The Hamilton Scrapbook." Even though Facebook can be somewhat limited in enlarging articles as can be done on the Hamilton Scrapbook website, it is really wonderful to see that someone took the initiative to embark on this very valuable Facebook feature. If any visitor knows who began the "Trenton Thing" segment, I would like to thank him or her.

Hi Tom: I don't know anything about Facebook but I guess I could learn. As long as you keep this website for technologically challenged Trenton people like me. Regards

Have no fear, Ralph and Sally. I will continue to update this blog. I do suggest you go to www.facebook.com and sign up. It's a good social network. I just with they would not let the vulgarity I see posted by certain members.

Tom...greetings. The answer as to who began the IATT site on FB is Mike MacNicoll (Mactrucks of Wisdom) with assistance from Gino Formaroli and Mike Brandolino. Also, Gino also has his own site "Chambersburg Registry" which is an incredible source of photos and history specific to Chambersburg.
Let me know if I can help with any Facebook questions ..... it CAN be a great place, if one is selective in which locations they "surf."

Thank you very much, Diana. I did visit Mr. Formaroli's Facebook page. Fascinating photos! I wish some of them were identified. One of the photos is of my Yankee hero "Joe D."
