    Online forums nowadays face the challenge of competition with web 2.0 platforms - integrating, utilizing, and promoting the DFI community via Facebook is a great way to maintain and grow that online community, and expand the exposure of DFI to an audience that would otherwise get to know this forum.

    Why dont we add option of like as we have in FB. once a person likes a thread it should automatically post to his friends wall. Its a good option to have. :D

    This is not spamming if we are getting referrals from members. We are not sending out mass advertisies.

    Referrals to join DFI, advertising via FB is okay. What I'm talking about are links of threads being posted of the walls of contacts in friend-list. That sure is spamming if I am not wrong.

    this would be difficult to do, members can possibly post replies or have them appear in their own walls???

    I am already doing so with 4k strong friends list in FB (thanks to my love for MW earlier ). I am also promoting defence videos using FB . One video or thread on each day by even 25 % of active members will just do wonders. We share funny videos and photos in FB then why not defense forum discussions and videos ?

    You did not get my point. That picture of DFI's post on your wall is very much okay. But imagine DFI to be tweaked in such a way, that every contact in your FB profile gets it in his wall, that would be spamming.

    Its not a picture thats in my wall . Its a link that I liked . you can like or dislike a video on youtube and that will be posted in your profile . If thats spamming then everyone is doing it . Though I agree DFI group in FB should not indulge in it . but if we post 2-3 links for videos or thread in a day it will not be spamming . in order to get noticed as a spammer you need to keep on posting a lot of links or videos . 2-3 in a day doesnt matter. If thats the case 50 % of FB users will be banned because they all use some kind of links and videos on daily basis .

    Shash, What oracle saying is you can do whatever you want in your profile or wall but posting all the links and videos in all your friends wall is spamming. You are confusing with news feed and wall i think.

    Manc and Oracle I never said about personally going to my friends wall and posting links and videos manually . I am too lazy to do it . All I referred to was news feed. Wall that I referred to was my wall and it was showing updates done by me . That doesn't mean I manually posted it on other person's wall. If a person post something in news feed it will go to all my friends news feed . Right ?

    You posted this in page 1. That is spamming.
    Once a person likes something in FB means it ll come in news feed, Nothing wrong in that. What oracle considered spamming is posting in others wall.
