I'm full of ideas me
i'm currently a member of the Avalon Guitars Appreciation Society and the Avalon Guitars groups on Facebook. Both are fan made groups with a small following, groups were an early application for an organisation or any ordinary user to bring people together to socialise etc. Facebook has changed alot since then and these have become unpopular with most people and organisations as updates for members doesnt happen leaving you a bit ditached from the whole group. the use of fan pages however has become huge! take Gibson, they've got over 90,000 fans! fan pages are easy to access, promote, update fans and generally easier to create/maintain. anything from pics, vids, links to other sites and fan pages, events and just general chat can go on within a Facebook fanpage!
So i thought it would be a great idea for Avalon to start an official Facebook page for all Avalon lovers out there in the worlds largest social networking site
this would be a great way to further promote Avalon guitars and of course this forum and the youtube channel
it can also be linked with artists/labels who use Avalons that are currently registered with Facebook as well e.g. Candyrat Records - Andy Mckee. Hope you all like the idea
if you want some help starting it up i'd be happy to help, infact i'd be honoured!
