RAPIDWEAVER AND FACEBOOK
You know it seems to me that developers and designers are missing a trick with only using the dreaded Facebook for product updates. When I go to the developers pages on FB, it is pretty obvious that they only post to it occasionally and when they have something to sell. However, as the page isnt being proactive its obvious and doesn’t encourage me to return. In my news feed I also dont see any of the update or interactions about RW. So RW is not on my radar Facebook wise. (it obviously is in my daily life as I use RW every day!!)
Now, criticisms of Facebook have already been voiced just on my posts to the RW Forums about this group. Its for 14 year olds, its mainly populated by women and I don’t want to know what you had for breakfast.
If developers want to expand their reach/market then there is little point marketing to the already very converted. There are millions of people on Facebook and I would hazard a guess that thousands of them already use Wordpress or Wix or Squarespace… Ok these are free but we all know what the massive limitations/drawbacks with the above apps are. Lets get them on to RW!!
So Im thinking, maybe all you developers, RW designers, webbuilders and others are actually missing a trick!! And a great place to start would be the group I have just set up!!
