GFF is on Facebook!


Published Feb 16th 2012

We have joined the half billion users on Facebook, and you can now become our Facebook-friend and subscribe to our updates from your Facebook-profile.

I didn't have a personal Facebook account for a long time. I realize that a lot of information exchange and communication takes place on Facebook, but honestly: I have seen so much noise too, and combined with all the other channels that any modern Internet user has to plug into, it does generate an almost endless stream of information. Add up Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, Skype, good old email not to mention all the messages that come in through GFF's comments, the forum and whatnot. I have more than my mouth full.

FB here we come
But as I said: Facebook is the place that people keep contact and get a lot of their information, and we of course want to service those GFF readers that are on Facebook.

So now there's a GFF page on Facebook, and you can like us there. Post comments, like us and make sure that you and your fly fishing friends on Facebook get the news when things happen on GFF by recommending us, sharing our posts and so on.

I also created a person on Facebook called Martin Globalflyfisher. I wasn't able to find the way to becoming a non-person at first, so right now I'm on FB as a kind of hybrid between myself and GFF - which in many ways is what GFF is anyway...

So you can become my Facebook friend. The more official way to connect with GFF is by liking the Global FlyFisher page.

You can also access FB directly from our pages. We have had a Post on Facebook link before, but we now have a Like-button as well as the Mention-on-Facebook. When you click the Facebook-icon found in the left column on most of our pages, a small box will pop up with these two functions. If you're logged into Facebook, they will work directly. If not, you will be asked to log in.

We also have an option to post to Twitter and Google+ and a fancy short URL that can be used for all these compact messages. So we're slowly getting into social media, and you are now able and very welcome to spread the word about or presence and activities.

PS: These functions were revised just now - mid-February 2012 - and since our pages are pretty heavily cached, it might take a few days before it has full effect on all pages. You can still use the old functions present on almost all pages until then. Late march 2012 the new functions should be available on all pages.
