    I've had it 'liked' for a couple of years now...

    Whoever runs the page doesn't post very many 'updates'/stories/articles' (whatever you call them) though...:confused:

    Been a few the past couple of weeks but for the most part, I forget it's even there...

    I went ahead and "liked it" but FB really is a 2 edged sword for a forum.

    FB has been sucking traffic from forums for a few years now.
    I think the key is to use FB as a toll to pull ppl in and ask folks to keep gun talk on the board etc.

    I've just been granted admin powers there. I'll try to keep it more current.

    Duly noted.

    Putting FTF links on there will be a huge help i think. But like they said earlier, we don't hear much from the fb page. Its just kind of there.

    I'll like it, but I see it as a double-edged sword.

    It could potentially draw in good people, but it could draw in dumbas*es who just want to come here and blast about how guns are evil and whatnot. Or draw in even more spammers?

    Of course, I doubt those people would last very long, but still.

    I dunno, just thinking out loud... Wait... In text?

    Anyway, I'll go ahead and like it. I love the forum so why not, right?

    Ok I don't really do fb all that much. I follow my kids but thats about all but I just liked FTF on there so maybe I'll check it now more than I have been which is about every 2 weeks. I don't do twitter either except during the election cycle and then just to see what Neal Boortz has to say.

    I have checked in and liked it. I will send it to some of the like minded people on my list. It might scare some of the libs though.

    One of them asked me if Obama would hold up the ACA for 30 days if we would agree to turn over all of our guns other then single shot .22s. After I told him that the 2nd Amendment guarenteed my right to keep and bear arms, and said that anything not granted to the federal government in the Constitution was states rights, and I saw nothing in the Constituion about health care, he backed down.

    I then said I had a deal for him. I would make sure all of his neighbors kept their dogs from crapping on his lawn for 30 days, and in return he had to give up the use of his car from now on. He thought that was a dumb deal for him, and I said exactly.
