Because apparently there is an ET Facebook Page. Not that I can modify it or anything.
Discuss. Poll included.
I also blog on a closed Facebook rugby forum group mainly for Irish rugby fans. It has grown very rapidly to 11K+ members so discussions tend to be lively and the participation rate is high. Most posts tend to be short comments, links, photographs or videos and so the level of analysis is often not very detailed or high. I don't think it would be very suitable for the 1000 word plus posts we often produce here.
If we ever have to ditch scoop as a platform, Facebook might serve as a temporary emergency replacement. At least it gives you some out of the box functionality and you don't have to worry about hosting or spam attacks. TBH I'd forgotten we had a Facebook page and am unclear what its intended purpose was or how it might expand our userbase here. Unless we create a closed group, it doesn't create a sense of a distinct community, but then that would defeat the purpose of disseminating our work as widely as possible.
So overall I am open to ideas/suggestions, but am unsure what value having a separate Facebook page adds to our work.

I thought you'd have keys. :) Would you mind adding me (and Frank) as admins?
In other news, I'm planning to move ET to Linode servers in Germany rather than London in the next year. (Unless Linode open an Irish data centre, which is conceivable.)
