Thank you, Adam, for giving me some understanding of Facebook and videos ;-)

I actually agreed with you originally about using the second handshape, and would have normally written the second handshape, as I did in this example attached, but then when I saw the written sign for RICE in SignPuddle, with the Opening finger movement symbols I thought - wow - it is good that writers who know the language can write as they feel it -

It is an interesting experience to work freely online like this, isn’t it? - we are continually learning from each other-

I think you would have to download the video to be able to show it in the email. I don’t know if Facebook has the option to allow people to download videos. I guess you could screen record the video to get it so you can include it into the email. However, I think the link is sufficient.

I just thought of something else. If the language being written doesn’t have succinct difference between how the fingers contact, then using the circle handshape would be acceptable to use. And it would be good because it is easier to read for most people. So that would be understandable why the writer wrote with that symbol.
