Today, I was thrilled to be invited by Facebook to take part in a panel discussion to talk about the wonderful work going on in my online community.
Kiran opened the session with beautiful stories of what Facebook has been doing to better connect our world and impact lives positively through Facebook communities, especially in sub-Saharan Africa. Such a powerful and moving message.
Kemi shared golden rules on engagements and managing online communities on Facebook. As an experienced community leader and staffer at Facebook, she shared valuable nuggets that explains lots of things that go on here.
I think I really liked the story of vulnerability; that is showing the human side of you and letting your audience understand you are human too. I try to do that a whole lot. It is super inspiring and amazing how much people open up when you connect with them on a human level. Powerful!
Ijeoma Ogwuegbu Uduma, our Lagos Lead shared her story on growing and building her gardening group. An amazing narrative. Because of her beautiful community, I try to take extra time in communing with nature these days.
Well for the son of Nebu...LOL. I talked about Tales Of Nigerians (The secret group and the Page) and the amazing work we are doing to engage our people with their daily real life experiences.
In all, it was an amazing evening and I thank Facebook for connecting with community leaders on here. It gives one a sense of being a part of the global mission of Facebook, and knowing that our content and time here counts.
Cheers to more beautiful opportunities, stories and laughter.
Till we get to the Promised Land, I shall be waiting for when you will pass me a glass of water and thank God for the gift of grace for the race.
