Bump!

We have over 24,000 members here and only 142 "likes" on Facebook. We can do better than that!  :)

Yes, we could do better than 142 likes, but why would we? I'm on FB daily, but it's just to communicate with my friends. I never use FB for things like tech support or seeking a business service or seeking detailed info such as we have here at pizzamaking.com.

Perhaps I'm missing something, but what does FB do better than pizzamaking.com ?
What would be the advantage of using FB instead of the forum?

I liked it back with the original post but have to admit I haven't thought much about it, I have seen you post some articles, etc.  but we should probably be posting some pictures of pizzas that we have made!  I'll do it next time I make one

It's not better than the forum, nor will it replace the forum. But it may help spread the word about the forum. When you "like" articles on FB, your friends will see the "like" and perhaps investigate the page... which will lead them here.  :)

I liked it.  :)

Facebook gives a forum more exposure on a wild west Internet. Pizza Making is set up as a Page to dovetail back and promote an independent website. There are other methods such as Groups that are more interactive and act somewhat like a forum though there are little in tools to organize a Group. Groups kind of compete with Yahoo Groups, Google+ and are similar to the old Usenet Groups. If you have an interest that is narrow or obscure you most likely can find it. Pizza is not like that but surprisingly there is little about pizza on Facebook.

I created a Group 6 years ago called Pursuing Pork Tenderloin Sandwiches on Facebook because, quite frankly, it has very limited appeal and could never be an independent website. It has grown to 1,500 members.

Steve, perhaps many members here, including me, do not participate in FB or other social media. There are many reasons why I choose not to, but for someone who does, you can add my "like".

It's a great idea. I didn't think of friending as I use the forum more than FB. Totally agree it could drive up exposure and sponsorship, "from viewers like me" as the local PBS affiliate would say  ;)!
