Yes, blog readers and "A new faculty majority" followers, there is a story behind the popular Facebook page's sudden disappearance—and I will blog it. Until then, I invite you to visit and like the new Facebook page, Precarious Faculty. Finally, neither our overall social media reach nor individual Twitter streams, blogs, G+ and other destinations in the PFR network have been adversely affected by the change. Many experienced more growth than usual.

Adjunct Justice's dramatic increase in traffic is the silver lining to the recent FB disruption. Visitor numbers keep climbing. Next visit, remember to click LIKE and jump those numbers to match too. Make @AnaMFores' AJ the #1 adjunct page on Facebook. PS: don't forget to sign her better pay for adjuncts petition too.

NFMUCI: Day 1 Twitter





About adjunct unemployment, that is. The short version: plenty of action and spreading links around. I'm taking a clue from the Digital Humanities blogging community and blogging the tweets or rather the ones from searching "adjunct + unemployment," which yielded the biggest haul.


Most but not all are via yesterday's Chronicle article, which include 21 comments as of 1st day's end, with surely more to come today. As for the article and commenters, supporters and trolls, I'll have more on that later as part on ongoing NFMUCI coverage. 


Now for visitors - and tweeters - to get past the article and to the Unemployment Compensation Initiative website. NFMUCI is short for both initiative and url, http://nfumuci.org as well as hashtag.
