Alison D. Gilbert's insight:

I was able to use facebook last year as a resource 'After Sandy' for information both to gather and give to others.

Alison D. Gilbert's insight:

A year and a half ago, ancient history in facebook years, a major change took place. Facebook came up with something called, 'Timelines for Business Pages' and their covers have exacting spefications. Those specifications have changed so many times, contradicting and undoing previous versions of them. At one point, I pretty much gave up and renamed, Page Cover Mastery, to Page Cover Mystery.
