AOCI - A New Facebook Community for Military Veterans

My friend, Joe Rhyne, has taken the initiative to create a Facebook application that allows military veterans to network in a professional way. I see it as a "virtual Officers' Club." Here is how Joe describes the vision for AOCI:

America’s O’Club of Industry (AOCI) is an exciting new Facebook application for former and current U.S. military officers interested in professional networking. With a quickly growing membership base, the application offers a great way for officers to connect and interact. Members can:

  • Search user profiles by location, industry, company, education and more
  • Message other members even if you’re not Facebook friends
  • Read reviews of employers and graduate programs submitted by AOCI members
  • Join a variety of veteran message and job boards, and more…

This app is novel adaptation of the Facebook environment for the military community, and fills an important niche in the social media world. The apps founders have created a guest account for me and I've already invited a number of my Facebook friends who are current/former U.S. military officers. Membership is invite-only, so if you are a qualified friend and I have not invited you, please let me know and I'll send you an invitation.

I look forward to meeting you on-line at AOCI.

Did you know that you can get paid to do simple jobs on Facebook?

There are thousands of businesses around the world and in your local area looking to hire people just like you to work on simple tasks such as:

Posting Facebook comments
Moderating Facebook groups
Uploading photos and tagging people
Generating Facebook ‘likes’ and followers
Most of these jobs don’t require any prior experience and the only skills you need are a good knowledge of how to use Facebook.
