Dear Facebook followers….

27 Jul

… I know there are some readers out there following this blog via Facebook by linking to my personal account (which is more or less my hobby account anyway). As some of you may have noticed, Facebook has recently had some problem due to the way they (ab)used their users data.

As a result of this many sites, like this blog, will no longer be allowed to share to personal accounts as of next wednesday. But they will be allowed to share to pages on Facebook, which is more or less a company or club version of a personal account.

As a result, I have created a page for our club on Facebook which can be found here:

So if yo would like to keep following this blog via Facebook, I would kindly ask you to go there and like the page.

I think this might also have a positive side effect. I have always tended to post just finished work here, to kind of keep this blog neat. Now I am contemplating using the Facebook page to add some work in progress pictures from time to time, or maybe some photos from games when I know I will not have the time to write a proper report anyway. So maybe this can also enhance the experience for some of you.

(Just to underline this… if you are following this blog via Facebook, this will probably be your final warning, as this should be the final post shared on my personal account!)

    I would like to keep receiving your posts but I canceled my facenook account. Will that be a problem?

      I guess it should not be a problem, after all you found this post, too.

      None the less there are other options anyway. Most blogging services offer an optiontonfollownotjers blogs. Then there is the eMail notification on the upper right hand side of this blog or Twitter… although you better ask Donald about that… he seems to use Twitter a lot. ­čśë

    So, is this something that you’re doing yourself out of choice, or some automated thing that another party or company is doing?

      Well I am doing it myself. Can not really say it is out of choice, since Facebook will disallow the current method. Although I have to admit, that over recent years I have at times thought about creating a seperate Facebook page to relieve those of my friends who have no connection to this hobby at all.
