    Hi, why is it that I cannot simply look at the page, why must the "open an account" thingy obliterate approx 60% of the offered page? I might not like it but have committed my details to facebook! In my eyes not a good move at all; so methinks "stay away". Also seems like a sister/brother to 'twitter'. I could be wrong but those are my thoughts on Mac-forums facebook page.

    Very best regards from Keith in Derby England.

    Hello Keith...thanks for commenting. I'm assuming this "open an account" message will only appear once...and after you've opened an account...you should no longer see it. In any case....this is totally a Facebook thing...and nothing to do with the Mac-Forums.com Facebook page.

    As far as "methinks stay away"...this of course is every individuals choice. But with with over 2.38 BILLION monthly Facebook users...it would seem that's a pretty significant percentage of the total EARTH population who aren't following that advice!

    If you mean the URL of the Mac-Forums Facebook page...look at the top of ANY Mac-Forums page. There's an announcement there with the Mac-Forums Facebook page link in red.

    Yeah, how could anyone miss that overly huge space wasting announcement???

    Any chance of reducing it down to a more normal size. Pleeeease!!! It seems a wee bit excessive to me, and I had to reduce the size to be allowed to post it. So yes it's huge on my 27" iMac.

    Thanks...

    How many pages appear when you use Facebook app on the iPad and search for the Mac-Forums page?

    It has been reduced to about 50% or less than it was originally.

    As far as it being "huge" on a 27" iMac. I think that's just a little bit over-stated. Only way it's huge on a 27" iMac running at it's native resolution...is if the window devoted to the web browser is very small.

    On my 13" MacBook Air...it's totally not huge!

    Yes you're right...it does not show up when using the Mac-Forums app.

    But as you've probably seen...the new Mac-Forums Facebook page was also announced in this thread 10 days ago.

    Thanks, and yes I noticed. Now another 50% reduction would be nice and appreciated.

    BTW: What am I missing as to why the fabcbook page seems so important or critical??

    It certainly has no real organizational structure of any sort. But some of the photos are nice as are some forgotten hints and reminders.

    I'm sort of surprised this question was asked by anyone that's pretty tech-savvy.

    It certainly has no real organizational structure of any sort. But some of the photos are nice as are some forgotten hints and reminders.
    Have other Facebook pages been visited...how are they massively different??

    Patrick:

    The idea behind the Facebook Page is that a lot of folks are on Facebook, much more so than folks who participate in forum discussion. Our reason for the page is that those folks who are exploring Facebook see our page and that perks up their interest to visit us and perhaps join. It's also an excellent backup to communicate between members in the event our forum goes down for any reason.

    The structure of Facebook is not the same as a forum. I realize that if you're not into social media it may not make much sense to you, but our Facebook Page is as well organized as any other.

    Thanks for the explanation Charlie.

    But why is there no direct link to the actual real Mac-Forum site on the Facebook page???

    Yes, I guess most Facebook users use FB differently than I do.

    Links to the actual Mac-Forums.com website are in AT LEAST two places of the Mac-Forums Facebook page...if not more.

    If someone is not familiar with Facebook pages that's ok...not everyone is an expert (and maybe doesn't want to be). But please don't jump to erroneous conclusions.
