Being of a certain age, i must confess that it took me some time to even understand the whole Facebook 'thing' let alone try to use it or figure out how it worked.
Eventually i did and i enjoy it. I've made some good friends from all over the world and caught up with people who, in some cases i haven't seen nor spoken to in years.
It took me quite a while to open a FB page for EFUK for a variety of reasons. Time and the chance that no one at all would use it where major factors.
Truth be told the EFUK page is doing ok. In fact it's doing a lot better that the Blog is which is a most pleasant surprise. I never in a million years expected to have 10 members let alone the over 200 that are there now. One disappointment is how few of those members are actually from the UK and i do find it slightly frustrating that there aren't more comments than there are but all in all it's been a positive experience.
One of the things i've noticed about FB and FB page owners in particular is how obsessed they are with the number of 'likes' their pages get. Not a day go by without several 'Hey we've 1000 likes' posts etc'.
Personally i would rather have 1 genuine like that 10k who come to the page once and never return. I don't stress over the numbers and barely take a bit of notice of them.
One thing i can't quite figure out, however, is the 'Unlikes'. It happens from time to time and i always spend a little time wondering why? What have me and Paulina done differently today than we did yesterday? Is there something in particular the person isn't happy about? A particular post or something other than that?
What i would love to happen is that if a member has decided to leave that they email/message us and tell us why? If nothing else we would class it as constructive criticism? We are always open to suggestions as to how to improve both the Blog and the FB page. Your ideas would be very welcome and we don't bite (not unless you ask us too!!).
