Social Networking Averts a Disaster — A True Facebook Story

leave a comment »

The following story really happened at the PRSA/SPJ holiday party the other night. I’m changing the names of the participants so as not to reveal too much information about nights out at Fayetteville bistros.

As the evening at the party room was coming to a close – and as one contingent was contemplating a move to the next venue – the waiter told us that Zephyr had left her debit card at the cash register. Zephyr had departed the gathering about an hour earlier and apparently was unaware of her oversight. So we looked among ourselves and wondered if anyone had Zephyr’s phone number. No one did. What to do?

Our friend Zinfandel knew exactly what to do. She pulled out her iPhone, not to make a phone call, but to go to her Facebook page. Zinfandel and Zephyr are Facebook friends, so Zinfandel simply wrote on Zephyr’s wall that she had the debit card and would be glad to arrange a handover the next day.

Later that night, Zephyr logged onto her Facebook page and saw the message. She responded on Zinfandel’s wall, thanking her and telling her where they could meet the next day to turn over the debit card. Another Facebook miracle.
