CADTutor on Facebook

Quite honestly I don't know how you've all managed without this for so long. CADTutor now has a Facebook group. Those of you with an existing Facebook account can go straight to the CADTutor group page and join. At this stage I'm not quite sure what we'll do there but I understand that many young people are really "into" it. :wink:

I don't use facebook and I am sure many others do not also.

Should there be any lengthy discussions regarding CAD on facebook, will there be any duplication onto this site for people who do not use facebook?

 

Thanks.

The answer is "I don't know". It's a step in the dark for me. We'll just see how it goes.

Since I find Facebook just a For-Fun kind of thing, I don't see the need for any real links between the CADTutor offical homepage and the Facebook group... it's just for fun Leigh, no need to get huffy about it :)

I apologize if I misunderstood you LCE, I just don't think you need to take a Facebook group as serious as I read from your post that you do.

That is Ok.

I have no objection to it at all. It is just I have seen things like this go pear shaped before, with discussions happening on Facebook (or similar) rather than just using it for socialising, then the rest of the community (at CADTutor) misses out.

 

Like I said, no objections, I think it is a great idea for socialising, just so long as that is all it is.

So, James,

 

I joined up tonight to see what was going on, and rapidly got nowhere. :( So I gave up.

 

No doubt my daughter knows how to use that place. :P

That's right - it is just for fun. No "official" CADTutor business will go on there. I just figured that since the Chat forum is so popular, it might be nice to expand into a community space. If things do go "pear-shaped", then I just pull the plug and say, "well, that was an interesting experiment".:)

Wow, the things you learn.

 

I just did a search on my old college, still going through it all, up to page 42. I have already found 2 blokes I went through college with.

 

Truly amazing.

I only use it for keeping in touch with people who only use that... people I have met on my travels mostly. It's quite good when you get a few friends 'cos it then starts suggesting people that you might know based on how many of your friends these people know... but as an application hoster it's rubbish IMO & insecure (so beware what info about yourself you post on it)... I'll have a look at the CADTutor page later but I see this as my main port of call :)

That the groups are pretty useless other than mild amusement at the strange random groups that people join. And the consequences of joining some groups and then leaving them. ;)

Hmmm, well I for one don't have a MySpace nor a Facebook. Nor am I apart of any other social networking site, other than this forum board, and two others that I regularly go to. If people wanna find me, they have to do it the old fashioned way. I honestly have no interest (at the moment) to have a Myspace/Facebook page. Who knows what lies ahead in the future though.

 

And I'm not doing it to boycott it or anything, just simply no urge to sign up for one. Am I the only one who is like this in the world? Seems everyone else has one. :)

Well you can't please all of the people all of the time...

 

I have to admit that (with my current lifestyle) I don't need social networking but CADTutor is a big community and so it's just there for those who want to use it - kind of like an outpost. Social networking may just be a passing fad - it's certainly the zeitgeist. I don't have any grand plan but if it helps more people find CADTutor - great.

 

Oh, and for those of you who don't intend paying a visit, this is what you're missing...

...or not, depending on your point of view.
