Mayhem now also on FaceBook!
« on: June 15, 2015, 06:42:56 PM »

 
In order to widen the worldwide appeal of all things Model Boats Mayhem...

I've started a group on the dreaded Facebook!



ModelBoatMayhem Group!
https://www.facebook.com/groups/ModelBoatMayhem/

 
First of all, there are several things that this is NOT:
 1. It's NOT the new direction for Mayhem.
 2. It's NOT the replacement for Mayhem
 3. It's NOT the future of Mayhem ( garlic bread is the future! )
 4. It's NOT an alternative to this Forum.
 5. FB will not be taking anything away from Mayhem, we've worked too hard here to achieve what we have achieved up to now!

The 'pros' of FaceBook ( FB )
 1. An additional branch of Mayhem.
 2. FB is .... is slightly bigger than Mayhem with a much wider audience.
 3. It's much easier to upload high volumes of photos & videos. ( with Google+)
 4. Many modellers, club, groups, organisations, retailers & manufactures are already on FB.
 5. I don't have to worry about ISP's, Hosting companies, Servers, PHP, HTML, up-time, backups or moderation!
 
Why?
I'm seeking sponsorships and products for review from some retailers and manufactures and they, obviously, want as much publicity as possible,
I can better achieve that by publishing in multiple places. BUT, in the best interest of Mayhem, there will be exclusive material here on Mayhem!
 (If I do get items for review, I will be seeking some reviewers with a proven track record of posts on Mayhem! )
 
I have Thousands of photos not published on Mayhem due to server and disk space limitations, I don't have to worry about that with FB & Google+! ( i.e.  I'll host the photos on FB / Google+ and post, with Links, on Mayhem and  reverse Links on FB. )
I will not be publishing anything on FB that cannot already be found here on Mayhem.
I will publish here first then secondly on FB.
I already have a YouTube channel and will be posting more videos there too!

If you already do FaceBook, then you understand this post, if not, don't worry about it, Mayhem will be here as long as possible.

On FaceBook:
Log in or sigh uo to FB.
You need to be logged in to FB to join our group.

On FB, click  -
 


..... right then, lets get started!

Cool move. personally I already am a member of 4 model boat FB groups.

I'm assuming that your FB page will be an open/public page Martin? Closed page means people have to request permission to post/view items.

And once again you can see nothing unless you sign up  >>:-( >>:-( >>:-(

Pointless link.

At least with Mayhem and forums in general you can "view" before you buy.

But not Facebook.

The stats are facebook is on the decline,  :-)) :-)) O0 O0  now I wonder why
