The web has changed the nature of writing for social media. It has become more and more user friendly as the years go by. One of the most crucial aspects of WEB writing is to blend macro and micro approaches. The idea is to toggle between a comprehensive plan (a bigger vision) and a task oriented daily approach. Through this historical investigation and social commentary writing project, I hope to bring together my use of a variety of social media unified by FRASB..
Telling a Story with FRASB
FRASBing is a way to build a body of knowledge over a sustained period of time. In this article I will exemplify an approach; using FRASB to make my social media project coherent.
Story Telling as an Example of a Comprehensive Project Management
Nauru - In the Beginning....... Development and Now
There are relics on Nauru from the Second Word War. This is one of the places from which the Japanese kept watch in the 1940s. Command Ridge is Nauru's highest point and there are still some of these relics there such as rusted WWII guns, which are on display for the public. There are two large rotating six-barrel weapons that once fired 40kg (90oz) shells. The communications bunker is still there.
Did you know how much Nauru suffered in the Second World War?
Nauru, is an official Republic that was formerly known as Pleasant Island. It is an island country in Micronesia in the South Pacific that had a Population of approximately 9,322 as counted in 2010 and it's capital is called Yaren District. The president of the country is Baron Waqa,
The currency on the Island is the Australian Dollar and there are two official language English Language and the Nauruan Language.
My purpose for exploring the history of this Island is to think deeply about the relationship between the Island and Australia regarding issues to do with refugee resettlement, detention of refugees and their processing on the Island.
It is interesting to note......
On April 23, 2004, Waqa together with Kieren Keke, David Adeang and Fabian Ribauw participated in protests at the Nauru International Airport in Yaren. They were expressing their anger about government policy against Afghan asylum-seekers in Australia. These four men faced up to fourteen years in jail because they were involved in the protest - although the charges were dropped.
Through the use of short daily FRASB's I am going to explore the history of the tensions and the nature of this ambivalent symbiotic relationship.

Using FRASB Effectively
Short Pithy Political Statements
FRASB is a great way to share your story and opinion about it with the world. You can write short pieces of up to 500 characters. The purpose of the app is to provide a platform for users to quickly and easily share their opinions, solutions and stories of hope so as to inspire the world.
FRASB is different from other social media platforms whereas users can share their creative opinions and inspire others and in turn be inspired by the creative opinions of others.
When you post 500 characters or less identify key words and use them as hashtags to highlight the hopeful nature of the issues, your creativity and your proposed solution. Personalize your post with a photo and tag your location so that others know where you are.
Followers will be able to see your posts the posts and 're-suggest' and applaud them. Frequently re-suggested posts can be viewed on the "Trending Opinions" page for all FRASB-ers to see.
NB# You can turn the privacy switch on if you prefer privacy.
Particularly inspirational and creative FRASBs that have received a lot of applause and re-suggestions from other users, are often selected to be a part of the Suggested User page so that your profile will be recommended to every FRASB user. FRASB makes it easy for you to share your posts on multiple social platforms, such as Facebook and Twitter and it is this capacity to bring social networking together and for the interactivity with other users that I seek.
If you know a little something about Nauru - why not synch in and become part of the story?

As a Social Media Experiment
And so from now on, I will be researching one fact about Nauru and Australia's relationship with Nauru on a daily basis. I will FRASB these insights and it will be linked onto Twitter and Facebook.
On a weekly basis I will write an article about what I have learned informed by others reactions to that on both Suite101 and here on Wizzley. As I go, I will pin the images I discover on to Pinterest. I am interested to see if I can get a discussion started. I hope that on the Suite people will respond.
Eventually I hope to write a book - an unbiased historical research paper - investigating the symbiotic relationship between Nauru and Australia. So if you have a different opinion or think I have gotten the facts wrong please let me know!
