Social Media for RLF? Indeed!

Post by Martin Blank » Sun Feb 03, 2013 8:03 pm

Yep... It took me a long time to come around to it, but the Forums have social media points now. There aren't a lot, but you can follow @reallifeforums, and I've also created a Facebook page for it, too. Right now it has kind of a drab URL because there aren't enough Likes on it, but once I hit 25, I can change it to something useful.

Here's the proper URL: https://facebook.com/RealLifeForums

In the meantime, I'm still trying to figure out what to do with it. I don't want it to become a replacement for the forums, of course, but it can certainly be a place for photos, notable threads, and things like that, something to garner some attention for the site. I don't expect to change the long-standing policy of not including outside code on the forums themselves, so no cross-login capabilities, but a little cross-talk might be OK. We'll see.

I also haven't decided on whether to set up a page on Google+. Thoughts?

So if you've not already checked out one or both of the sites above, by all means stop in, click the Like button, and at least help get a page name. And if you have some ideas for the cover page and profile picture, please do suggest them!

I've completely abandoned facebook for... a while now, so I'd be cool with it.

I'm not really sure what sort of content it makes sense to have on a twitter account for a forum, but I'm sure you'll think something up!
If all else fails, use fire.

I've posted a couple of things about outages. I'll probably do some cross-posting with FB and G+. But I need two more Likes on the FB page before I can give it a useful name.

Do the Google Pluses. It's SUCH a better site. I'm currently forced to use Facebook due to adoption levels.

Apparently, I did create a Google+ page. I just forgot about it.

Well, that fb page died spectacularly. Bummer, too because it seemed like a good place to catch up with others. I checked it out and no replies, at all. Some random posts to page with no likes or responses lol.

The RLF fb page? Good if so. Maybe drive more people back here. Maybe.

Facebook doesn't need the numbers. :p
