Facebook's and don'ts

If you're one of the millions who already have a Facebook account, or are considering opening one, then here are a few suggestions to protect your privacy on your way to social networking.

When creating an account you only need to enter your name and birthday (in which case the birthday can be made-up) to open the facebook account.  Any other information is optional and we'll get to that later.  Do NOT use the same password for your facebook account as you use for your email address.  Imagine someone hacking your facebook account and then realizing the same password is tied to your email, bank accounts, ebay account...etc; I think you get the idea.  For creating passwords we always suggest using a combination of letters, numbers and symbols - be creative.

Once you've opened the account take a look at the privacy settings.  Be sure "only friends" are allowed to view your information.  Remember too, anything you write on another person's wall can be viewed by, not just your friends, theirs too; so if you don't want someone you don't know to see it play it safe and send an email instead.

Click on your name and then "edit profile" under your picture.  You will be prompted with hometown, neighborhood, relatives and more.  Keep in mind that this information is not required but if you want people from your hometown Pleasantville, IN to find you then you can enter it in this section.

Ok, so you're up and going; making friends and being social.  Good job!  Quite often (as I know is the case with many, many people) once you've shown your face online and word is out that you are now a facebooker the friend requests come flooding in.  Keep in mind that what you do online shouldn't really change from what you do in reality.  Be selective about who you be-friend and allow into your world.  Which leads to the next privacy topic.  Groups.  Facebook now allows you to "group" your friends.  You can have a family group, church group, school group, co-workers, acquaintences...etc and each group can be assigned different permissions.  This is a nice feature if you don't want your co-workers to know about family events or acquaintences to learn they are not invited to movie night next Saturday.

This should get you going for initial privacy setup on Facebook.  Enjoy, have fun and be smart about your privacy! :)    

Office Supplies

As many of you in the Saugatuck and Douglas area know we carry office supplies.  I know, for some, we've become a regular stop for those not wanting to drive to Holland for a ink cartridge.  Recently though, because of the increase in computer work, we've decided to move away from the office supplies and focus primarily on computer parts and service.  As before, we can still order parts, computers and many other items but will not carry as much of a selection at the office.   

We will still carry printer paper and the copier is still available but ink cartridges and other similar items are being dwindled down.

Send a Soldier a Netbook

Big Blue Water, along with other local businesses, are joining together to support our soldiers.  Soldiers are sent away from friends and family for long periods of time and we, at Big Blue Water, would like to use technology to bring our soldiers closer to those they love.  In October 2009 we began a campaign to collect funds to purchase and donate a netbook to soldiers being deployed to Iraq and Afganistan. 

If you would like to help, feel free to stop by our office to drop off your donation amount.  Or, you may go to to make a contibution via PayPal.  Also available are donation cans at The Sand Bar Saloon, the Fennville VFW, Pullman VFW, Holland VFW and Caravanserai Bakery.

Any questions?  Please call Melissa at Big Blue Water

FYI on Billing

Big Blue Water has changed it billing cycle.  From now on you will receive an invoice for each job rather than all jobs completed within a 30 day time frame.  We hope this will simplify the invoicing process and allow for a thorough record of jobs requested and completed.  Invoices will be sent via email in PDF format (unless postal mail has been previously requested) and will be due within seven days of issue.  Please feel free to contact the office or send and email with any questions.
