    You want to see a MAJOR increase in traffic and membership on this board?

    Get a twitter account.

    Post a couple of links per day of the most popular/controversial topics and watch the membership soar.

    If you don't believe me, just try posting to some threads from your own accounts, if you have one, and see if you see one or two members pop up shortly afterwards.

    Now go out there and be somebody.

    Don't worry guys, this one's on the house.

    I heard that Twitter and Facebook are magnets for identity thieves, so I am not going there, Mr. MarcAtl.

    Whoever you got that nugget from is either severely misinformed or entirely ignorant.

    Take your pick.

    There's a reason why almost ALL major corporations and media outlets are on twitter.

    Google+ is not business friendly?

    In fact they haven't rolled out their business package as yet.

    Twitter allows anyone or thing to have pages.

    Facebook allows only PEOPLE, not Corporations to have facebook pages.

    Corporations need to have Fan Pages, which is done FROM a HU-MON facebook page.

    Google+ plans on allowing business to have entities, but not quite yet.

    Facebook doesn't let corporations have pages? Since when?

    Coca-Cola | Facebook

    Applebee's | Facebook

    Twitter is for stalkers, that's why I will never get an account there, I could just send a txt on my cell to people I know instead.

    You didn't read my post, or didn't understand it properly rather.

    I didn't say that they don't or can't have Fanpages, just page. A facebook page has to be owned by an individual. What you've posted are examples of fanpages. There's a big difference.

    When I used the term "page" I really meant and should have said "profile page"

    See: Facebook Fan Pages for business vs. Personal Profiles for individuals

    You are still wrong.

    Amazon Appstore for Android | Facebook

    That is not only not a fan page, it is a page where Amazon, which is a corporation, announces deals and gives away products.

    Here are the actual Facebook TOS for businesses.
