Social Media at Work

On Facebook, I recently became a fan of Millennium Park. This means that park news and events appear on my Facebook page; I don't need to remind myself to visit the Millennium Park site.

Yesterday, this meant that when I checked Facebook after my doctor's appointment, I learned that the crocuses have started to bloom in the Lurie Garden. What better place, then, to sit and eat my lunch?

And so I did, charmed by the sprouting crocuses (croci, if you prefer). I took a snapshot of one of them, and posted it to my Facebook profile, closing the social media circle in one sense and opening it further in another.
