Dear All,

I'm sure many of you have heard of ''facebook''--a very successful online, free venue for friends and people with a common interest to discuss issues in groups, etc. Probably one of the better groups that involves lupus patients is called ''Understanding Invisible Illnesses''.

I was wondering if you are interested in us starting a group on facebook to raise awareness about lupus worldwide.

If you haven't already, try checking out the forum at www.facebook.com (Registration only takes a few minutes).

All the best,

Ok, I have created another group on facebook, called "Lupus awareness"

Facebook is a very powerfull tool with over 30 million users.

To access it and join up, there after one could invite a number of other people from u're email or on facebook, register on the site and click on groups, then search for "lupus awareness".

This will get better awarenes for lupus, the number of users registering on the site is astronomical.

Actually, there are 43 groups on Facebook that relate to "lupus awareness." Sounds like there are a lot of folks hoping to raise the awareness of this disease!

Yes this is a good thing actually, the more people we can get involved the better

It's a business social networking site -- not much on Lupus there yet -- so a new group there would be really visible. And been seen by more movers / shakers
