I'm on Facebook, a LOT. I belong to most of the all-molded-towable pages. I read but don't post much. It's typically like one giant CHAT. I also belong to four all-molded-towable forums. I read too much....

It is so cool that they are part of this forum and they actually provide feedback to our membership. I would not expect them to be a part of the FB page, as it would be an additional means of communicating where folks have traveled and share their photos and experiences. Anything technical would most likely be directed to the forum

I still don't understand why you want to use Facebook for communication between members.
Same opportunity is here and it's not mixed with cat videos.

Revenue, as little as it is, is what sustains this forum.
Picky point but what sustains this site is the energenic participation of old and new members. Ad revenue from across the network of related sites is likely what keeps the doors open so to speak.

If one could curtail the image postings here the annual costs would be minimal.

Doug, you are correct. That is the official FB page for ETI. This one would not be affiliated with ETI , other than an additional social medium for Escaoe Owners!

I belong to a online truck club forum much like this one, we have a get together every two years, a couple years ago one of our members wanted to start a facebook page, once it was started it seemed like the participation on the original site slacked off. The main core of us are still there but quite a few that used to be there are rarely on any more. Just my two cents worth.

Started By Linda but due to time constraints passed over to ETI this past year . Funny (or scary ) how Facebook works when Linda posted photos of their new TA...it turned up on our timeline and when I commented I started seeing a lot of people familiar from this forum in that constant line up of "people you may know" crossing the top of my timeline ......not that that I think the forum folks are scary .....just Facebook ......feels a little like they are sitting over one's shoulder ......

No, you're not pushy at all. Although, I have been known to be.

Just a difference of opinion, that's all. I love this forum, and it does everything I need it to. No enhancements needed imho.

I spent too much time now just reading forums. If I have the idea right, adding Facebook to the mix would just add to that.

Kind of like going to a Casino, I don't do it cause I might find I like it more then is good for me.

Hmmm...that is the one I accessed the other day there does not seem to be very much activity on it. My apologies, I though it was run by ETI. Is Linda still the Admin? I see a "join" button, so I am guessing this is a closed group?
