I'm on Facebook rather often. With just over 1000 friends, it can be nearly impossible to keep up with everyone's doings; sometimes, even birthdays are hard to acknowledge. The flood of information can be overwhelming. But that leads me to wonder…

How many people know that both EERE (that is, the DOE's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy) and Energy Savers have Facebook pages?

Do you visit them? And if so, have you ever shared one of the items you found there?

In a world where social media allows us to amplify messages merely by "liking" or sharing/retweeting/cross-posting them, it seems we're all messengers these days. If you like any of the messages you read here—the tips or suggestions or anecdotes—I'd invite you to share them with your friends.

It's possible for a single item to become a tidal wave, a snowball's worth of content to become an avalanche, if enough people think it's worth sending to their circle of friends and acquaintances. So I'd ask if you, our loyal reader, might do just that today. Take a second and share a story you've read here with your friends. It's easy to do.

And if you do, drop us a comment here and let us know, okay? We'd love to hear from you.
