THE FLIP 11.09 Leaves are falling, temperatures are dropping… it’s finally starting to feel like fall in Memphis. And you know what that means—it’s time to start thinking about Christmas. That’s right, Christmas. It’s closer than you think—only 56 days away! Before you panic over presents for your kids, may we make a suggestion? Consider giving your teen the gift of travel this holiday. They get out of the house for a few days after Christmas; you get the house to yourself. It’s a gift to both of you! On December 30, SWITCH will be heading to Atlanta, GA, to celebrate the New Year in style. We’ll be staying in the fabulous Embassy Suites hotel, exploring the best downtown Atlanta has to offer, and engaging in worship every night. After we ring in the New Year, we’ll catch some sleep and then head home on January 1. To sign up, visit SWITCHmemphis.com or call 333-3368. The cost is $100.

Culture Clues Figuring Out Facebook Although Facebook has been around for several years, most adults are just now starting to check out the social networking site. For new users, Facebook can be somewhat overwhelming. It can also lead to some pretty embarrassing situations if not used correctly. Nick O’Neill (All Facebook: The Unofficial Facebook Resource) has released a list of the top 10 privacy settings that he believes every Facebook user should know about. Although all the steps below may not be necessary, many of them are very helpful. If you’re wary of people seeing all your info, check out this list to find out how to protect it. 1. Use Your Friend Lists to Keep Track of How You Know People 2. Remove Yourself From Facebook Search Results 3. Remove Yourself From Google Search Results 4. Adjust Your Photo Tag Settings So That Only Certain People Can See Photos of You 5. Protect Your Photo Albums 6. Prevent Stories From Showing Up In Your Friends’ News Feeds 7. Protect Against Published Application Stories 8. Make Your Contact Information Private 9. Remember That Wall Posts and Status Updates Can Be Seen By EVERYONE Unless You Adjust Settings 10. Keep Your Friendships Private For more info about how to do these things, visit http://www.allfacebook.com/2009/02/facebookprivacy/. O’Neill provides a detailed guide about how to do each step and explains why it’s beneficial.
