Embarrassing as it is for me to admit, I’ve been pretty absent-minded about maintaining our “social media presence,” such as it is. We’re delighted that we have almost 10,000 Twitter followers — with the Twitter feeds automatically coming from our RSS feed — but I can’t figure out how to sign on to manage one of our accounts (with 1,145 followers), @Volokhcom. I also can’t figure out how to sign on to manage the Facebook page called The Volokh Conspiracy, which was set up but hasn’t updated since Nov. 2012 (presumably because it’s going off an obsolete RSS feed).
It’s possible that I set these up with some odd e-mail accounts, though I’ve tried the ones I remember using. It’s also possible that the sites were set up by a thoughtful reader. Again, I’m embarrassed that I’ve been so scatter-brained about this, but there it is.
So let me ask:
(1) Have any of you configured either Twitter @Volokhcom or Facebook The Volokh Conspiracy? If so, please e-mail me at volokh at law.ucla.edu.
(2) Do you have suggestions on how I can figure out (perhaps by reaching the right people at Twitter or Facebook) who the page owner is — and it might be me, using some odd e-mail address that I’ve now forgotten about? I know that there are ways of complaining that an account is wrongfully using my name or trademark, but I don’t want to go that far at this point.
