The Space Shuttle Enterprise, Plus Two Other Things I Liked in Social Media This Week

1. Do you admin a Facebook Page? Your profile picture just got a bit larger - On Thursday, April 26, Facebook made a slight change to the size and placement of Page profile pictures. Just to be clear, the profile picture is not the cover image, the profile picture is the square-shaped image to the bottom left of your cover image. The new dimensions are 160 x 160 and should be saved as 180 x180! 

2. Connect with your favorite Olympic Athletes - Thanks to social media and an innovative team with the Olympic Committee, you don't need to be in London to connect with your favorite athletes. You can find Olympic athletes by name, country, sport/discipline and game. Additionally, you can be a bit a competitive as well. Participate in the Olympic Athletes' Hub and unlock badges and win prizes!   

3. #SpotTheShuttle - I'll openly admit, I am a bit of a space geek and astronaut wannabe. When I was growing up, I had a telescope, all of the Apollo Mission patches and even a space shuttle necklace. Oh memories. This week, I loved being able to track the Shuttle Enterprise's flight path from Virginia to New York, at which point the shuttle will be placed on a barge and taken up the Hudson River to final home. I was in awe of how many great photos there were. This photo was posted by NASA. I am thankful for social media that I was able to enjoy these historical moments virtually.
