Facebook Group for Rock Piles

By Geophile
Don't know if anybody who's reading this is on Facebook, but we're starting a group there concerning these sites, partly in order to reach younger people who may be interested in the topic. The name of the group is: Celebrating the Ceremonial Stone Landscapes of Eastern North America. Many college students spend a lot of time on Facebook, so if you know any who are interested in rock piles, consider steering them this way. Not much there now, but more will come and member participation is encouraged. Thanks!

Further note: Facebook is a social networking site, aimed primarily at young people. Anyone can join, but once you do, you can't really see other people's pages unless you request them to friend you and they say yes. However, anyone can join most groups. Sign-ups are at My thought is not to bring people onto Facebook who aren't there, but to reach some of the people who already spend a lot of time there. This is just a stab in the dark, but for a while, I'll keep related news and content up to date and post some photographs that might appeal to the curious. Nothing you won't see here. The challenge is to think of ways to attract those who may be interested.

Sounds like a good idea. Unfortunately for me, Facebook is blocked at work.

Where is the pile located in the photo?

Norman, I took that picture at the Oley Hills site six or seven years ago, possibly when I was there with a large group including you.
