Well, we went and did it and finally enabled our Page on Facebook:
Since about April, we've been going back and forth regarding this, and have recently come to the conclusion that, for better or worse, Facebook is an
online juggernaut which can no longer be ignored.
Now, we all are aware of the multi-faceted issues related to Facebook and the litany of concerns related to some of their technology efforts and
especially the founder. So let me be clear, if you're not currently on Facebook, please do not join just because we made a page.
This effort is
by no means an endorsement intended to inspire current or future members to sign up and participate there.
However, there's a stupid large number of people there, many of whom may have not heard about ATS. The page is designed as an outreach effort to
encourage Facebook users to learn about us and especially what our members have to say. And since officially promoting the page on the ATS home just
20 minutes ago, we jumped from 105 people liking the page, to 212. So, it may very work nicely as an outreach.
Again, if you're leery about Facebook, please don't join on our account. But if you do have a Facebook account, check out our new page, and let your
friends know about it too.
