If you don't know about FaceBook and want more info, you can ask and check it out. You can setup an organization with privacy easily for many options that are included, all free. Pretty neat stuff. There is more than what you see on the surface. Lots of fun options. This would be in addition to our website and forum. It does not require much work to do it. No maintenance to speak of. Just another way to use free technology.  ;)

I use Facebook to keep track of friends and let them know what I'm up to.   IMO our website and forum do that for the squad and I don't thing Facebook would add anything.

I don't use it.... don't want my old girlfriends catching up with me... LOL...  Seriously, I agree with Scorp.  I don't see any advantage.  Ram, do you see other squads on facebook?

I think people create new accounts with their squadron handle... ie...   https://www.facebook.com/aces.high.718

Not sure how many people do this

I am new to the Squadron but will give my 2 cents on this one. I think Facebook is a bad idea for all aspects of life, due to many reasons we can cover in a different thread. I closed mine out a few yrs ago and all a sudden it came back. Went through the process to close it down again (knowing full well it never goes away). Suggest not using it for any Squadron items.

After considerable thought and unlikeable results with a facebook account I mistakenly made at the request of my kids (wife included) I'm still paying for it and wish I could just make it go away.
ALAS!!!!!!

I concur with Grim, but I understand Ram that if one has time to keep it monitored, it can be fun and you can gain kazillions of "friends" who will allow you to assist them with raisoing their various barnyard animals and participate in all their online scavenger hunts.
No time here and I think this should be restricted as a "Personal" matter!!!

S!~
 I believe Facebook should be kept out of the AKA Wardog world. Let us remain under the radar- and not join the largest voyeuristic group on the planet. It can only hurt the foundation of a great group. Most long lasting organizations keep their heads down- and ride quietly into the future. I vote no. For those who use it socially- Im sure its fine- but for a flight sim group? Curious.....  ???
