Quote:I like what you're doing there Ira. The PSA portion of the page is important to me. I have hit the "promote" button to see the rates before. I have yet to try it with the club page though. We haven't yet worked out a clear vision for our message. Hopefully we can do that at our next member meeting. You now have 2546 likes.

Quote:The trivia question is a GREAT idea! You don't mind if I shamelessly steal that for our club up north, do you?
Quote:Our club just tonight started a Facebook page. I was hoping that some of you are in clubs with successful Facebook presences and could offer a few suggestions on which way to take this. My idea was the standard PSA type stuff about celestial events and notifications about club outings and public nights at our observatory. Then using those to comment on the pages of local news and educational organizations to get the word out. Any other fun ideas you wouldn't mind sharing? I'd also love links to your club's pages so I could poke around too. I'll "like" them, I promise. Clear skies,Rock

Quote:I personally prefer G+ over FB but it doesn't have as many users. I suspect that will change the more FB pursues it's commercial revenue streams. I think people will be bailing once they get a full does of intrusive advertising every time the log on.
