It would be nice if those of us here on Slotblog (who don't do Facebook) could see what you are offering.

When I click on the link all it wants to do is get me to sign up for a service I don't want (Facebook).

 

Feel free to delete me here, I won't mind. I'm aware technology is leaving me behind and I accept that.

But I have privacy and identity theft issues.

 

I think if you advertise on Slotblog, you should show your products on Slotblog. Without being diverted to another location.

It's not a product yet, just a drawing of a metal stamping unit. No other information on the Enterprise what ever it will be. Just a guess but I think it maybe another new Flexi chassis.

I remember a Rock Hudson movie where he had talked about publicity for a new product, but the product didn't exist. He ended with an alcohol-based candy, after the fact.

I agree with you (no FB for me either) but until then...

What do you guys do should you need something of the Slotblog Facebook page? (Yes it does exist & has for a few years.) Just go without?

I've noticed stuff on my timeline, when Greg shares something.

 

I'm not sure if I ever went to the actual page, until now.

 

PDL has a cool balsa wood car on there, IIRC, made in 1968.

Hey Pablo,  if you truly do have issues--you need to destroy your cell phone and get OFF any computer!  :shok:  You're already being tracked by the world because you are linked in!  I love your work--but it's FAR too late to worry about identity theft once you're on the internet and own a cell phone. That horse has left the stable many moons ago!!   :laugh2:

I think for any business to assume that “everyone is on Facebook” is a mistake. I’m 64, use an iPhone, iPad, and pc, but neither my wife nor I have ever felt the urge to use Facebook, and we know many people who have ditched it, including our 3 adult children (two millennials and a Gen Z) and most of their friends. Then again, others might think of the wife and I as antisocial, rather than just private.

That said, I have found that I can look at pretty much everything on any public Facebook page (the two local raceways, Tony P’s page, the Shadow Can-Am related pages recently, for example - maybe can’t always get videos to work or expand photos). Just page down after a few seconds of loading, and cancel any pop ups that come up asking you to join. Works a bit better on the iPad than the pc.
