Third times a charm (I hope). I think it's fixed now.
Thanks for working with me on this peeps!!!! :tiphat:
 
I guess I'm the resident dinasaur. I'm not a member of FB or Twitter, so I don't understand how this site ties in w/ other sites. Re the like & dislike thumbs on a post/thread, I would rather see members reply here (in a positive manner) - & not have a thumbs up or down. I vaguely remember (on another site w/ this same format), members could give posts/threads "x" amount of Stars. Didn't much care for that, but it might give you a better idea of what kinds of threads/posts are appreciated. Just my two cents.

Facebook and twitter are social networking sites that can be used to get the word out about NCT and hopefully help it to grow. Whenever a member here "likes" a thread, it will be added to their newsfeed on facebook and twitter. It will then be available to all of their friends to see. If it's an interesting thread, hopefully curiosity will get the best of them and they will click on the link and be brought to the thread that their friend "likes". It's why virtually EVERY decent sized company and website has a facebook page. It's great advertising and best of all, it's free!

I don't do Facebook, but I'd like to help NCT. Does it help NCT if I do the like button on the threads that I like?

I think you have to have a facebook account for it to work but you can always add a link on your blog to NCT if you want :smile:

Mama's right. You have to have a facebook account for it to work. A link on your blog would help for sure. We like links. That is part of what liking on FB does. It gives us a link on Facebook.

i have a nebby friend ?(friend?!) sans a life besides poking into others' business, this is why i hesitate. she soon joined the forum way when ago when she saw i was on here via FB,, so i needed to sadly unfriend NCT. i like to keep much from her, that's me, tho. i'm game, otherwise. i can block her.
 
Please don't just become "Facebook Only". I'm not, nor will I ever be, a "Facebook" member. Nor "Twitter" or any other inane populist page.

Have more than enough fun & spend more than enough time on websites that aren't hellbent on sucking in my personal information. (And if you don't think Facebook does this, boy do you have a lot to learn!)

Facebook doesn't have ANY of my personal info except my email. NO NAME or any other info.

Well said Breezy. I agree and know you are right about the personal information.
NCT is there in hopes of bringing more members here, but I have to admit I do not put much effort into it as I can't stand going over there. It gives me the heebee jeebees.

If you have not given your name then they probably don't have it ...at least not from you. but if you have any family contacts who are claimed as family or friends you knew from school or work it is not hard for then to decipher who you are. If you are in any one's contacts on their cell phone and they use their facebook account from the phone then they have your name number and maybe email if that is listed in your contact info. If it is the same one you used with a bogus facebook id they can then tie the two together to know who you are. So many ways for them to decipher the info, and dang if they don't have programs that do just that for them. I'm normally not a paranoid person but I will admit, facebook makes me paranoid.

I NEVER put ANY of my info on FB. I use the email addy as my name. I really only go there to play the cafe world game. LOL I have NONE of my real life family (not many of them left and are not pc savvy) on my facebook account.

Of course they do! You had to give them that info in order to sign up.
negatory breezy. It's easy to sign up with a bogus name and generic email address that you only use for facebook. But if you want old friends to find you and accept your friend requests the vast majority use their real names and even include maiden names.
 
Well, I guess that's true for anything you sign up for, but it seems to defeat the purpose.

Regardless, Facebook, et al, ain't for me. I'm perfectly happy contacting my acquaintances & loved ones via the now age-old e-mail, as well as - gah - the telephone, & - double-gah - even "snail mail". Oh, the humanity!

Anyone who isn't privey to the above info is obviously someone I'm not interested in being in immediate contact with. If more people took that into consideration, there would be far fewer people whining about Facebook problems.

My ONLY purpose for facebook is to play the games so NO purpose is defeated. They can ONLY get info that YOU give them. And like you said Breezy I can call any family or friends or write a letter and put a stamp on it.

i only put stuff on there that i'd say/show to anyone. pix included. many old friends located me there.
&, as doc said,u can use bogus info. or not. & u can get to the library & use one of thier computer labs make bogus e-mail accounts. i own several for that purpose.
& i know that i'm not whining. i see no one here whining. i'm saying people can be nebby, & i like to keep pieces of my life seperate from others.
they can find your actual info. easily. remember the cell phone deal that released all people's #'s on people's phone's contact list to the public if u owned a certain brand of phone.....
i call people. i send Christmas cards. i send snail mail. regardless, i'm cautious.
