Question for you guys, What is the general feel on having someone in the club who is more active on the facebook page? I don't jump into the forums all that often, I think it's a sanctuary from the nonsense of social media, but I'm willing to be a point person on the Facebook page to create more activity on there.

I'm thinking just basic stuff, like creating event reminders for meetings, and runs etc. Possibly show the Facebookin' world what a Rising Sun meeting looks like, take a few photos, whatever else we think might be good to share.

I figured I'd put this idea out here before really jumping in. I did comment a few weeks ago, and there were a few folks who thought it would be a good idea. I can appreciate why some folks might steer clear from Facebook as well...

Let me know what you think!

Thanks! ~Mike Lypp

I like the idea Mike, will you be at tonight's meeting? Maybe we can vote on it since its "election night"?

Hi Mike, I’ve put some careful consideration into this. I think a discussion at a meeting would be good.

My initial thoughts were “‘This is a great idea.” Now that I’ve mulled it over, I have some reservations, but it’s more about what the club wants to do as a whole.

Are you coming to the meeting tonight? If so, please bring this up.

Mike isn’t talking about making a group, mike is talking about someone taking lead to use the groups to increase traffic & club visibility, etc... on Facebook. For instance, in the “busy months” before cruise main I see a ton of posts on there, but far fewer regular posts on the Rising Sun page. Seems like a good idea to me, depending on what sort of rulles exist around the club’s social media

I'll be at the meeting tonight for sure!

&& Yes. I'm just talking about taking a lead on the existing FB page, creating events, posting some photos of events etc. Nothing new. I don't want to take over anyhting or have any authority. Facebook does provide a nice interface for mass communication and friendly reminders. In this fast paced world things slip by pretty easily.

&& I can definitely appreciate reservations. Facebook can be a hornets nest of nonsense.

I didn't even realize there was a cruise moab fb page!

I certainly would adhere to any guidance dictated by the leadership as far as what to post. I think there's a good opportunity to increase visibility, if that's what the club is interested in.

I’m also a trained Web developer and have a healthy career in IT as a sysadmin, so I’m absolutely willing to help with web work as well.

I’m all for having Mike run point on this. TBT, I no longer have the time.
