Forum Page Loading Response
We have received feedback regarding recent issues with page loading response time. We believe the slow response issue stems from the analytics we added with the new Forum. We are in the process of reconfiguring those elements and, after an approximate 24-hour time period for the reconfiguration to run, we anticipate a return to normal page load times. Thank you for your patience!

My wife and I (in our mid 40's) joined FaceBook 2 weeks ago. My 18 year old son said "No Dad, you are too old!" so we joined .
In the past two weeks I've reconnected with several long lost friends from grade school, high school, college and previous careers. It's a pretty amazing networking tool and I'm still learning.
If FornoBravo would want a Facebook page, it would be a "group". You could create a FornoBravo group and determine who and how people could join. It's kind of like a structured, networking enabled webpage.
My advice would be to join Facebook and start exploring. Set up your personal profile, join some groups (like your high school and college's alumni groups) and start reconnecting with some old friends. After a few weeks, the light bulb will illuminate and you'll be able to see if Facebook could be useful for your company.
But don't let it take the place of the forum. This forum is way too important.
I agree!! My vision of a FornoBravo Facebook page would be to highlight James' company, show off some Pompeii and modular domes, announce new product lines, spread the newsletter and direct traffic HERE.
When someone becomes a "Fan" of the FornoBravo FB page, that will encourage their friends to visit the FornoBrave FB page, thus driving traffic to FornoBravo.com. Does that make sense?
James, I've got your back...all of this "new" media is more than I have cared to explore. Call me old, behind the times, even anti-social (been called that more than once); I just don't care to make the time, so no Facebook, no MySpace, no Twitter. This forum is about the only media "vice" that I have, beyond surfing the web (sounds so ancient these days). I'm more hands on, always involved in projects or simply relaxing with pizza, beer, and a good cigar.
Now, from a business standpoint.....James, LISTEN to these guys, it makes sense to go after the masses...but there will be a few "farts" like me that raise a bit of a stink.
I think you could definitely reach a lot more people with a Facebook group. You could post the videos there, link to the forum, show some completed ovens, make announcements about new product.....
You do probably want to sign up yourself first, and then do some exploring. I'm now in touch with a lot of old friends I'd lost touch with from high school! (They're all very impressed with my oven, btw. They'd probably sign up!)
I signed up for facebook a couple of months ago... its ok, but the problem is, I already spend so much computer time hanging out at Forno Bravo, I really don't need MORE things to keep up with on the internet!
How about flikr then? Couple of people were very interested in a picture of my oven I psted there, so of course I added a link.... maybe a group with pictures of finished FB pizza ovens could also be a good idea?
