Just being curious, is PokeCommunity on FaceBook?? Does it have a fanpage that can be 'liked' or is there a group?? Earlier on, I tried searching for PokeCommunity in the Facebook search tool but tons of groups and pages popped up, some obviously not about this forum and some...well let's just say little Pokemon fan clubs on FB have been using this forum's name. So i was wondering, is PC really on FB? O.o

Since, PC's on Twitter and FaceBook has billions of users and I think that at least 40-50% of PC users are Facebook users.. XD

At the moment, no. We haven't looked into Facebook just yet.

I think you should get it, could get new members and everything to the site which is what the whole idea of the forums are, for people who love pokemon to discuss pokemon.

It'd make for a good group I think, rather than like page. That way membership would have to be approved by the creator and you could give your username to prove that you are actually part of the PokeCommunity. Not that we don't independently have enough places to gather and chat, but it'd still be pretty cool I think.

Then maybe a like page anyone can join so you can get publicity and new members.

PC on Facebook.

The possibility of people knowing who I am on here...

No thank you. Besides, Facebook would bring in too many members, more people not reading the rules.

No one said it would be a requirement for you to join PokéCommunity at Facebook if there ever were one. As for bringing in too many members, that's a horrible thing to say. PC exists today only because of our members that remain so active. Saying it would bring in too many people and more people not reading the rules is hardly anything to go by. I joined PC as complete forum fresh meat, didn't even read the rules at first (I was quite lazy then), but I stuck around and learned the ropes. Of course I eventually did read the rules, but regardless, that argument is pretty void in my opinion.

All that being said, I think it'd be a great idea to eventually get a PC Facebook account. We already have a Twitter page (@pokecommunity (http://twitter.com/#%21/pokecommunity)), so why not expand our borders in the near future, yes?

I agree that it would actually be very nice to have PC in FB.
getting more members is definitely a good thing, and besides, no one will oblige anyone to join, its just a way for PC to be known from FB as well.
regardless of it being a group or a page.

Actually, there is a group. I guess it's not necessarily "official" but it was started by one of our members a few years back. I guess more could easily be done with it but if you're just looking to find more PC people on Facebook, it's a start?

That one looks awfully outdated. It looks untouched in quite a while. Maybe I could make a more "unofficialy official" one that could be more active. But that's up to everyone else.

well I made a FB Page for PC as a placeholder for now.

We'll have to see what the rest of the staff thinks about adding a PC FB page.
As for an official group, I couldn't make one without a list of friends to add so that's on hold for now.

What we need moreso is one of those pages where you can just "like" Pokecommunity. :( But I don't know anything about facebook so idk how to make one.

If PC had a "Like" button, I'd like this post, but seeing as we don't, I went and found this PC page and Liked it. :)

adding a like button is a whole 'nother story.. we do have the FB share (http://www.facebook.com/share.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.pokecommunity.com%2Fshowthread.php%3Ft%3D254005) button in the share this post menu above, but the like button is static to a url, and is not simple to add in to our themes anywhere. (no place for it)

Hmm *checks page*
well so you did.. and 2 others too :)

It would be cool to have PC on Facebook. Maybe in the near future in may happen. It could give us a nice wave of newbies! lol

well for those that want to go on FB and like us or post on the wall, or both, here is the official PC FB page: http://www.facebook.com/pages/The-PokeCommunity/228654953813171



NOTE: If any staff members want to help manage it, let me know (and like/post on the page) and we'll add you to page admin status.

I joined the PC FB page after it was announced on Twitter. I think you should make an announcement here at the forums to draw more people to it.
