What Should Be Our Facebook Page Cover Photo?

Have a photo of your own that you think we should make the cover photo for East Hampton Patch? Share it here.

The Town of East Hampton is known for its beautiful beaches and historic charm. It's no wonder we attract so many visitors.

So when Facebook went ahead and made East Hampton Patch switch over to the new look last week, I wasn't quite sure what photo to choose for the cover shot. The first thing I could think of was the .

Do you like that photo? Is that what you want to see when you visit our Facbeook page to check out the latest news and community information?

Perhaps you have a better photo for our Facebook page. If you are willing to share it, please upload it here. Feel free to come back and add in whenever, as we don't plan to stop posting on Facebook anytime soon. So we'll always come back to the well.

We'll check back early next week and pick out our first new cover photo. Ff course, we'll give a shout out to the photographer.

And, if you haven't "liked" us Facebook, please do. If you're more of a Twitter user, follow us @EHamptonPatch.

Peter, You have all this energy and knowledge of things local. Perhaps you could write a piece or two about something that you love or that we all should know about an submit it to the local media-- You could write a piece and submit it to the local written media--the Patches and 27 East, the Presses and the East Hampton Star I find all serve us well and a little competition is always good. As a someone raised here, I love that all of these have a local flavor and strive to do it. Why not use your energy, localness, and free time to good use. You could add to the goodness and strengthen the local roots.

Your points are well-taken, Dennis. I don't doubt that the Trojan Horse can be milked for what it's [sic] worth. Good marketing for you, extrapolated, may not be good for all in the long run? It is not healthy, however, that a huge corporation with deep pockets like aol can deliver its "free public forum" Kool Aid to the masses who drink it so willingly, without regard to the longer-term implications in the marketplace. There is no free lunch, and if the price of aol/Patch's endeavors is to have local print media fail, then there is no bodily sustenance in that.

Perhaps you could rotate my cover page based on seasonality. For example, an osprey nest in the spring, the swans raising their young on Hook Pond in the summer, the Montauk Lighthouse Christmas lights in the winter and so on. I think we are so fortunate to have all of the local printed newspapers plus the Patch. There is room for all of them with so much news and interesting stories. Today's Patch story that mentioned Jason's Rock is a classic example of a story that triggers memories of local history. I knew some of the old timers and learned a lot about the historical significance of places that they learned from the Indians. I am working on a blog now.

Love the Patch. You keep me in tune with the happenings in and around Bonac. If your rotating pictures could we have a picture of the local fishermen. I know the Lesters and Havens have some. Just a suggestion. Thanks again.

We are going to take all of your suggestions and rotate the photos in season. We just chose three from above. Thank you to Lynn Falkowski, Brian Wosnitzer and Diane Antell for uploading so many beautiful shots. Right now, we have put up Brian's photo of the surf boards at Ditch (we think). Check East Hampton Patch's Facebook page often to see new photos from members of the community. Please, keep submitting them! Thanks, again.
