AG,

Since I run the Diner FB page and Twitter, I am deeply conflicted about this. Of course, anymore, the Diner FB page bears as much relationship to the Diner forum as the Greenland colony bore to medieval Denmark.

Facebook is a poison hole, but it's also a decent publishing platform. So what to do?


Well, I am prejudiced against Facebook, so my opinion is anything but objective .

However, I agree with your position (that you expressed to me over a year ago) that posts in other social media platforms besides the Doomstead Diner (and this one) are a good idea because of increased exposure. So, as long as the goal is to get more people to read posts, it is logical to try to get the most exposure.

I don't do Facebook, but I have a Disqus following of 89 people . So, every time I post using Disqus, 89 people, theoretically ;), get the word. 🧐

Also, when I post using Disqus, I often link back to this forum. That gets some extra viewers, depending on the pertinence of the subject matter to the viewers.

I mostly post on Cleantechnica and Truthdig, so that is where I snag some extra readers now and then. As you see by the "Most Online Ever" number of 52, sometimes I get a nice pop in viewers. Most of the time on the Cleantechnica and Truthdig posts linking back to here, I'm lucky to get 6 or so. :P

Another way I have of spreading information to combat all the brainwashing people are subjected to out there is to use  graphics. In the Gallery of this forum (it's easier to view than the one at the Doomstead  Diner, IMHO ;D) you can see how many times a graphic has been viewed. That gives me a feel for what people are interested in (or want to eliminate 😈, as is often the case with the Hydrocarbon Hellspawn 🦕🦖). 

If you peruse the Gallery you will notice duplicated graphics here and there. That is because the Hydrocarbon Hellspawn 🦕🦖 like to hack images that make them unhappy. So, I have resorted to making copies. I keep the originals in my computer and make a copy when a hacking occurs. I don't know HOW they do it (I change my password routinely and use LONG, diffcult to crack, passwords), but every now nd then a graphic I use a lot will not take, even if formatted properly. On Disqus, where no "image" formating is required, it just does not show. >:( This is one way I KNOW that SOMEONE out there is watching me and I must be doing something right because they are selectively trying to surreptitiously censor me. The nature of the hacked images points squarely at the 🐉🦕🦖 Hydrocarbon Hellspawn.

And THAT is with a TINY viewership! 😟

Surly, I am convinced that if the viewership on this forum was routinely above that 52 count, the Hydrocarbon Hellspawn/Trumpoids/Fascists'R'US Hackers would make life very, very difficult for me. 

Perhaps those evil 🦍 CAPITALIST bastards have anticipated that and are busy sending links somewhere else when I link back to the Renewable Revolution on Disqus. I don't know but I would not put it past them. As a former computer analyst, I know it can be done, even if I have never learned the ins and outs of server traffic rerouting.

Nevertheless, I will continue to do what I can to get more people to view posts here, though I will not do Facebook. For now, I just keep on doing what I can in my small way.

I am content, although it is refreshing to have a fellow warrier fighting for social justice, like you, posting here.

I know you like to use the wordpress format. If you know how to modify this forum so you can do that here, feel free to do so. I have tried to repost some of your Wordpress posts from the DD forum over here and they just don't show properly so I am reduced to a brief link  :(. When I check my onlne history, all my posts on this forum are categorized by Google Chrome with the Wordpress symbol, so there is something going on here that obviously relates to Wordpress.

Getting back to the Facebook fun and games, as long as you are not bothered by their barrage of ads and other activities their "business model " involves, there is no reason why you should stop being in Facebook.
