Robowars Facebook Page

As many of us are now glued to Facebook constantly I thought a group there would be a good addition to the discussions. The old page has been taken down and there is links to other Aus clubs in there.

Personally I still prefer the good old forum but its a bit of a barrier to entry for new people and these youths of the younger generation. Damn I am getting old.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/RobowarsAustralia

Anyway me and Angus are currently admins might add a few more if it grows.

Forum is still good as stuff stays around and gets indexed by the googles.

Not sure if I can make it public without letting anyone join/post will look into it.

I avoid FaceBook and do not have an account on purpose. It would be a shame to have to give my personal life over to the Zuckerberg just to find out about what's going on with the robots.

create a fake account, worst case it gets blocked, make a new one QED ;->

I don't see the facebook thing becoming the place for "formal" robot talk if you will, but it is easy for chatting

Facebook is really good for drawing attention to events and the sport in general as it can easily attract non-fans through sharing of posts via the builders personal accounts.

It will never replace the forums as a place for cold hard facts and historic data.

If your scared of Facebook, create 'John Smith' account with no personal data loaded on it.

I think people post more on facebook because its easier to post photos there- here you need to upload then copy a link from a third party server... so much effort ha ha
