The folks at Facebook sent congratulations for having over 400 page likes and that they have selected the PackersHome.com Facebook page as one of the few selected for a $50 ad coupon.

I'm not one for ads, but if it gets a couple more awesome people added to our already good collection of great people in our community, all the better is what I say.

If you see the ad and can take a screenshot, that would be awesome.

I've long debated 'liking' the Facebook page for the site. But I've opted not to, only to avoid getting ads geared towards Packer fans. At least, for now. I may plug it for the Packer fans I have in my friends list, though.

First thing that came to mind are all the items advertised for Packer fans for which you'd have no use...foam cheese hats, Packer jerseys, charity bratwurst events and Josten's jewelry.

You're here more than anywhere else and yet you haven't "Like" the page? Might have to double your membership fees.

I don't think that'll ever happen. I think maybe 750 will be tops. Around that time, one year from now or so ... Facebook will be on the downward spiral.

all the news on facebook lately is they finally made it back to the IPO and they have finally turned the corner on matching the new mobile trend. All the projections have facebook going nowhere but UP. Also congrats on the 500 likes. Sorry I wasn't able to contribute more to that.

We're not all that mobile though. I'm trying to figure out TapaTalk API, but its going to take someone much smarter than me to figure out how to utilize that.

I'm hoping to get the site moved to MVC which has some really nifty mobile user agent tools, but still that won't help with the forum until tapatalk or something similar comes out.

What do you mean by sorry not able to contribute?

Did someone say facebook would die?

That is a no. The reason is: photos. Many Kids and Adults alike who are strong participants on facebook have so many photos, so many memories noted, ect that getting rid of facebook would rid of that timeline. Facebook kind of has the community by the foot. Unless your facebook data can be imported to a different website, it won't die for a long time.

It has slowed down with the under 25 crowd. Many kids are mortified that their parents have access tot he same site they hang out in. Many parents are mortified by what their "good kids" post.

I am sure it will remain viable for us old duffers but like always the kids have to find the newest thing in order to be happy.
