“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
Attributed to Margaret Mead.

Review of Occupy Groups List completed.
April 9, 2017 Facebook Share Bottom Graphic Problem Solution:
The Jill Stein/Occupy-Oakland-GA-Logo problem was fixed by deleting the original image, which was linked to the U.K. Guardian site, and substituting the identical image from the occupysf.net media library.
Setting the Default Image for Shared Post Without an Image:
SEO Default Image Setting:
occupysf.net > dashboard > SEO > Social > facebook tab > Default Settings
This image is used if the post/page being shared does not contain any images.
URL: (enter url from occupysf.net media library)
March 1, 2017

“The images on this page contain alt attributes.”
Attempted to share the post “Jill Stein raises over $4.5m to request US election recounts in battleground states By admin | November 25, 2016 “ to John Fraser’s FB page.
The article appeared but not the image. Instead the Occupy Oakland logo was shown.
Following the links below yielded a clue that the posting metadata was incorrect.
Occupy Oakland image in Facebook posting:
Click the Facebook Share button of the Jill Stein posting above.
Right click the posting in the Facebook Share window and select page info.
Click the Media button at the top.
Scroll through the Addresses and look for “image” in the type column.
Click on that address and the image will be displayed.
Social media platforms may not display image. Enabled Open Graph tags procedure.
Dashboard > SEO> Social: Facebook and Twitter.
Facebook Settings > Enable open graph meta settings, Front page settings > enter default image and title. Same for Twitter.

Thoughts on Occupy events calendar:
Currently each organizer sends out mass emails to all their individual followers. Occupy, being a follower, receives individual emails from all organizers, groups all the individual emails into the Occupy Calendar and then mass emails them to all our followers. Outreach then posts the calendar on the Occupy site.

Looked at new OSF and DE signs. OSF sign letters printed and ready to build.
Start on intro to Democracy Earth for DOS/Net Party tri-fold:
THE NET PARTY
“Power in your hands. A planetary commons of peers. For everyone, anywhere.”
What differentiates valid elections from surveys is strong identity validation. We are working with pioneering decentralized protocols for identification, so no single corporation (like Facebook) or government (think Estonia) owns your credentials. Only you are in control.
The blockchain — which is, briefly put, an incorruptible and public ledger made up of data that is stored decentrally, entirely distributed and interconnected.
