FAPA-YPG Sponsoring Facebook 2/28 Awareness Campaign

228In one of my earliest 8Asian blog postings, I asked Taiwanese Americans if they knew the significance February 28th; to raise awareness of 2/28 in a very web 2.0 way, the Formosan Association for Public Affairs Young Professional Group (FAPA-YPG), San Francisco chapter (full disclosure: which I am technically a member of), is sponsoring a Facebook 2/28 awareness campaign.

What FAPA-YPG SF is encouraging for all those who are interested in raising awareness about 2/28 is to do the following on Facebook:

1) Change your profile picture to feature the 228 logo, this Facebook event’s pic

2) Change your status message to the suggested one-liner: (Your Name) is commemorating the Taiwanese massacre of 1947: http://www.uta.edu/accounting/faculty/tsay/feb28hd.htm.

3) Post on your wall a brief summary description of the massacre.

Thanks for rating this! Now tell the world how you feel - .
