Facebook?

Post by pattim » Wed Jul 04, 2012 7:23 pm

Instead of just the google recommendation icon, how about allowing Facebook links and recommendations? Maybe even a Facebook group? Or twitter? Or one of the professional thingies like LinkedIn? That would certainly increase traffic here. Especially if we began including animations (maybe even real-time?) and posting them in a forum.

Sure, if you like, create facebook/twitter group and keep it going :) Robert wrote that somebody is wanted for that job (under "FansFAQ" at http://strc.comet.ucar.edu/software/newrems/ )

When you do that I will put icons here...

I've never set up a group, but I will look into it. Wow! I haven't contributed to the Global Commons since I was building Bacula http://www.bacula.org/en/ for the OpenSuSE repositories. Wish me luck.

Hmmm... I wonder if this is the type of group that EMS had in mind? Maybe there are other types of facebook groups? http://www.facebook.com/groups/245256852244027/

EDIT: Just thought of something - does joining this group *automatically* make someone a "Facebook Friend" of mine, and every member a friend of each other? We may not want that...
