    Hi y'all,
    for those who have a facebook account, there's a new BadmintonCentral page. This is different than the previous BadmintonCentral Group page (we might combine or link the two together)..
    The creator is still working to put the page together, but it will be up pretty soon..
    Anyone who is willing to help maintain the page, please contact kwun for further infos..
    So, do check it out & populate it..:cool::

    Call me an ignoramus, but why does BC need a Facebook page as well as a forum?
    (I ask this earnestly, not being a Facebooker)

    Have joined it now.
    Fidget on the old group there was few posts about videos of badminton things and people advertising their club sessions.
    And photos taken by BCers of players at tournaments.

    it helps promote BC. that's how facebook works. if you "like" the BC FB page, your friends can see your activity and it will help us promote BC.

    - I did my duty by inviting basically 80% of my 52 FB friends..
    - I've also announced it in the BadmintonCentral.com Group page..perhaps, maybe someone with access to its members' database can send an invitation to each of those 700+ people to join the new BC FB Page..
    *suetyan, no, i am not the creator or mastermind of the new BC FB Page..but i think you know who is the creator..:cool:

    What I meant was just a link on the homepage that tells people to follow BC on fb, twitter, etc. You could add twitter feeds on the homepage but not sure if that would be needed on the forum itself.

    Something like this I cooked up ... you can obviously change the pics as i randomly got them off the net. For example, for twitter perhaps someone can design the birdie holding a racquet or something

    Check it here on the left side of the page (click on the thumbnail and then click again on the pic in the link for a zoomed in version)

    Btw, some interesting things to do with twitter. BC should follow players on twitters :p And then try to see if they reply :D
    - announce upcoming interesting tours/matches/score updates/etc

    Anyhow, cheers for now
