OA Facebook page: updated name

OA's new Facebook page has a new name: OvereatersAnonymousOfficial. "Like" it to join the FB community!

Correction: OA’s New Facebook URL is

facebook.com/OvereatersAnonymousOfficial

Check out OA‘s new Facebook page!
     OA’s official social media page was moved this weekend by Facebook. The move was the result of a miscommunication, and OA was not notified in advance. As a result, the email sent earlier today contained broken links and a nonworking web address. (And an opportunity for WSO staff to remember the Serenity Prayer!)
 
Our new social media web address is:
facebook.com/OvereatersAnonymousOfficial
