There will be those who agree or disagree with the practices of Copper Alerts; such is the way with nearly every organization out there.... this being no different. In considering feedback that has been received recently, I feel that is necessary to communicate what is "Copper Alerts".
>>The wall will remain open (for now) but those posts will not be translated to the Copper Alerts email network. Only posts made through the intake form will go out. Additionally, as you know, you cannot post to a Facebook page without a Facebook account. Alerts created through the intake form do not require a Facebook account.
>>Copper Alerts is an information system. It is not a Facebook page. An information system consists of various components.......communication tools, people, sub-systems, websites, etc.
>>The work of finding lost pets is dependent on the work of those that participate in the network. Participation is voluntary and requires that certain protocol be followed. The protocol are in place so that the mission of finding lost pets is able to take place without creating more work or confusion for those who view alerts or those who develop and maintain the network.
>>The Copper Alerts initiative is to reunite lost pets and owners through the utilization of technology with the least amount of human intervention as necessary. Because this is volunteer work, the more that can be done with the utilization of technology, the better.
>>ALL the Copper Alert development is done by volunteers at no cost and as time allows.
>>An external website www.copperalerts.com is the true and real website of this network. This is a Facebook page. Such as the case with all organizations. Facebook is a social media. Social media is to create communication.
>>Eventually, there will be features on the Copper Alerts website that cannot exist on Facebook such as searchable alerts.
|Mission||Our mission is to utilize social media and technology to reunite lost pets with their family.|
