Hambook? Faceham? Hamface?

From Tomas Hood NW7US:

To all Amateur Radio Operators: Facebook is now allowing Hams to add their callsign to their profile. If you want to do it, here’s how it’s done:

- 1st) Open up “Settings”.

- 2nd) Under “General Account Settings”, on the line that says “Name”, click “Edit”.

- 3rd) Enter your callsign in the space marked “Alternate name”.

- 4th) Check the box for “Include this on my timeline”.

- 5th) Save these settings by entering your Facebook password in the box marked “Password.

- 6th) Click on the box marked “Save Changes”.

- Now return to your Main page and your callsign will appear under your name.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Jul 16, 2014 — Officially licensed amateur (ham) radio operators may now use their call sign as their Alternate Name, or nickname, on their individual profiles.

Jeff KB1PNB, who works at the Facebook Headquarters in Menlo Park, California found this petition on an amateur radio Facebook Group to which he belongs, and then did some research, wrote the necessary code, then got it reviewed and approved.

HUGE THANKS to everyone who supported this petition, which was originally the idea of Rich KW7PTL, without whom, this may not have happened so easily and quickly.
