I'm not convinced that this is something that Skids Place should do. I'm a dinosaur, like many of SP current members, and won't use FB. I belong to another site where when they started FB, half the members went to FB and never returned. Site participation went down. Many things are only posted and discussed on FB. They even had separate FB and web site X-mas kit exchange. Just saying.

Thanks for your input Don.

I'm sure Jason will be keeping a close eye on FB and will report any problems back to the staff here at Skid''s Place, at which point we will take the best action for the site.

Don at the current moment the number of "Likes" we have at Facebook is low. I only post weekly updates to inform, entice, and excite members and future members alike. I don't post anything to promote conversation there. People can post comments, pictures, etc on Skid's Place Facebook page, but like Al said. I'm keeping a very close eye on things over there. Thanx for your concern and input and I understand where you are coming from. 8)

Hey guys, I did indicate YES on the FB survey, but you really need to know that I very seldom if ever use FB. I'm just not comfortable in the new "social media". I guess it comes from being a cranky old man who doesn't care for "new and improved." I hope those that do use FB enjoy the experience and I also hope this will not impact the forum in a negative way.

To me, as long as ther FB site is used mostly as a lure and promotion of this main home, I'm OK with it. To flourish the net presses all to compete for eyeballs and time. If it takes FB for us to bring in new members and lookers, good. Just my view.

I understand where you both are coming from. Basically Facebook is for those who are on the go and want to catch up in a hurry on what's going on. It is also being used as a promotional tool to try and get more members involved here at the Forum. Like Al and I stated in earlier posts it is monitored closely for any negative effects and such. Don't want anything to happen to our members or our forum. 8)

Liked it too.

 FB won't replace a forum, the format of FB is too dynamic and hard to follow topics, popular topics take priority  buring other topics. FB is nothing more then a "what's happening now" device. It works great for an individual or business to keep followers up to date on what's going on but it won't replace forums with many many topics and users.

And that is exactly how we are trying to use it. Never planned to replace the Forum at all. Just an information tool. I couldn't agree with you more.

001 Just thought I'd help ease the minds of those not experienced and less familiar with fb.
