Find out why everyone's talking about a photo taken by a Cleveland Heights Patch reader - and how you can put your own shots up for everyone to see!
This image has gotten quite a bit of buzz on Cleveland Heights Patch's Facebook page. I can see why! The amazing photo was taken by quick-thinking Patch user Christine McBurney in Cleveland Heights and uploaded to our community photo gallery. She saw the deer at her Rydalmount Road house in late December. "I saw movement out of the corner of my eye and I thought it was people jogging!" Barefoot and wearing pajamas, McBurney grabbed her camera and took just one shot of those eight deer — which, if you ask me, turned out great. She shared it on her own Facebook page, got a great response, and shared it with Cleveland Heights Patch. Several days later, I spotted it and thought it was so cool that I made it the cover photo on Cleveland Heights…

Community Editor Amanda Harnocz wants to interview the people behind the pages everyone in Cleveland Heights 'likes.'
Do you operate a Facebook page for a local organization, group, business or school in your community? Then I want to talk to you. But first, a quick introduction. I'm Amanda Harnocz, a community editor for Patch. I'm a Facebook and general social media junkie and recently I was put in charge of managing social media sites for many of the Ohio Patch sites. (I know, lucky me! Right?) I'd click "like" on that sentence if I could ... Anyway, I want to do more than share your information on our Patch Facebook pages, I want to feature the person behind that page. I want to talk the operator about why the page was started, how your audience is growing and what types of things you like to post. I plan on doing several features like this in the …

Because kissing at the stroke of midnight is so last New Year's Eve.
Do you plan ahead? Listen up then, because Facebook is offering a new feature for New Year's Eve. Instead of clogging up the phone lines with mass texts and calls, schedule your good wishes ahead of time. Whether it's from near or far, you can wish any of your Facebook friends a Happy New Year at midnight in a personal message. Whether friends from Cleveland Heights and Solon want to swap messages or someone from Brecksville wants to wish someone a Happy New Year in New Jersey, it can be arranged. Facebook is now offering a service that will deliver a private message to any of your friends that will appear in their inbox at midnight Jan. 1. To get started, click here. You can even add a photo to the message. It's sort of like sending …

Facebook's terms of service haven't changed, but your cover photo may have.
Facebook cover photos have been disappearing recently, but a spokesperson says there aren't any changes to its terms of service. When Facebook users add a cover photo they are prompted with this message: "Pick a unique photo from your life to feature at the top of your timeline. Note: This space is not meant for banner ads or other promotions. Please don’t use content that is commercial, promotional, copyright-infringing or already in use on other people’s covers." The exact reason why cover photos are disappearing is a mystery. "It could be due to a copyright violation or that the photo was deemed too 'promotional.' Although Facebook removes the photo from the cover position, it doesn’t actually delete the photo itself," according to …

"Facebook is our escape. For a few hours, we can hide behind that Mac and be whoever we want to be."
Facebook. Some people believe that it’s “of the devil.” I’m serious. I’ve actually heard those words come from their lips. And I think: Hello?!! Facebook is nothing more than an electronic medium. A neutral entity. A tool. Tools can be used for productivity or as weapons. This has always been true. It’s not Facebook that gets us in trouble; it’s our humanity. Just this week, I vented and posted. Within the hour, my words came back to bite me, in the form of a text. “Friends” aren’t necessarily our friends (don’t expect confidence!) and those whom we’ve "removed" miraculously are able to decode even the most encrypted messages. Some things are better left unsaid. Yet, I still believe in self-expression, “To thine own self be true,” and all …

The CHFD wants to provide information for residents through the social media site.
The Cleveland Heights Fire Department has launched a Facebook page. The department is following the lead of the Cleveland Heights Police Department, which implemented the Thursday night "Meet Your Police" program in March 2011 and launched a Facebook page in January of this year. The goal is for police and fire officials to have more interaction with residents. This was discussed when it was first announced that William Freeman, a 20-year veteran on the Cleveland Heights Fire Department, would be the new chief. Freeman, who was sworn in at the end of August, explained the goals of the Cleveland Heights Fire Department Facebook page. "I thought that the page would be an ideal way to post information that affected the residents and enable us…
