Okay, Someone has to ask...
 
So, when is FB getting its own Facebook page? :confused:

Seriously, have you guys seen some of the WF oven stuff there? It's so sad. They need help! :(

Really? I'm nearing 50, and I'm not sure they would let me in. :-)

OK, more seriously -- I'll take a look. Any ideas on what I should be looking out for?

But I draw the line with Twitter. "Ate pizza today, FB." LOL

Let me know what you think! Old guy, new media.

James,

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.

I'm 52 and have a facebook page. My mother is pushing 80 and has one. Age is no longer an excuse. 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.
