So the question is, if we were to launch such a new site/service, would you use it. And if you did, would it cause you to abandon Facebook?
Yes I would, as far as ditching FB, no I am going to keep that around as long as my kids are on it and close family. I am by no means an active user
on FB. However, a lot of family and a few friends are on there and it makes for a good resource for communication as well as keeping abreast of their
As far as the social stand-point I would be more apt to use "Tinbook" for social interaction as ATS and my present/future friends is something that
I do quite frequently anyway on the boards & in chat. Great idea!
Also, even though I know some people would still not take advantage even if they had the means, but to be able to have a resource to put a face to a
lot of the members here would be a nice addition similar to how you can put your picture on FB. The photo upload we have on ATS could be used for that
yes, but I don't think that was the intended format. A face to the name I think would strengthen the membership as it would involve a little more
humility and not just an avatar.
Don't get me wrong I like the concept of my avatar as my identity on ATS. However, if a social aspect were to be an addition to ATS, we'd now have
an avenue to post a pic of the face that's attached to the posts.
Edit to add: I do have ATS Live on my FB, but no one has ever asked about it directly. I only added it to FB because I am that big a fan. Otherwise I
keep the two quite separated.
