    I dont want this subject to get out of hand, but to ignore Facebook and Twitter is just showing social ignorance.

    I don't have any problem with you guys not liking it, but you have to admit its social impact.

    Who knows? Maybe someone stumbling on this website thanks to our Twitter may become the next best staff writer? Do you want to stop that?

    I can accept the existence of Facebook (if used properly), but I don't really want to use it.

    Twitter is the spawn of to much free time and a short attention span.

    I think it`s best if we leave it so that people come across this site by searching for sega stuff, not out of curiosity because they are bored or have lost their attention on their last 5 minute fix.... we could end up with more unwanted people than we already have turning up briefly from time to time posting inappropriate things.

    Everyone said this about SMS-ing in the beginning.

    I like Twitter. It's like texting but for computers :-)

    I've never been so proud to be ignorant of something.

    Lately there were some instances where I got to know of important stuff beforehand through Twitter. So I think it has sort of become a source of news - not the best, just one more.
    yeah, I like Twitter.

    So...
    Will sega16's twitter be revived or definitely left to rot?

    I think we should just stick with the forum. We share vast amounts of information, news, and knowledge all in one place at the same time. Not to mention it's organized. I wouldn't know how twitter works but I say forums ftw.

    Why the twitter hate? Does anybody have a point why Sega-16 shouldn't have a Twitter account besides of not wanting to jump on "any social fad"?

    I like the idea of a Sega-16-twitter account. In my eyes it doesn't have to do anything with "showing off" to be "friends" with the site, but with spreading information. Sure, the regulars around here know when a review or a feature goes online, but there's still a vast sea of people out there who are fans of a particular game or of the Mega Drive in general, but don't know of this site yet. A tweet whenever a new review or feature goes online does only serve to spread the word about Sega-16, so more people may come across this site. The occasional visior who checks in on the website only a few times a month could see in advance when something has gone online that might interest him. And even though I check this website regularly, receiving three or four tweets a week doesn't disturb me at all.

    I'm for it.

    The problem is that for every 10 people who visit the main site, 1 comes and joins the forums. This means that the majority of our readers don't look to the forum for info on the site, like updates. Facebook and Twitter offer ways for them to get that information, as well as attract those people who network and like the Genesis but haven't heard about Sega-16. We've been around 6 years, but there are still people out there who haven't seen us.

    Our Facebook page has garnered 258 friends in about 2 months, including some well-known people. I think it's done well. I'd like to reboot the Twitter feed too, and add an icon next to the Facebook one on the main page of the site.

    Like it or not, both Facebook and Twitter are massively used methods of networking, and to ignore the advertising potential they present would be a big mistake for us.

    The Problem with the Facebook page is that you don't see the updates that Ken posts on there, they don't show up in the news feed.

    You should see if you can get it changed into a Fanpage, that would work much better.

    That's true. Page made!

    I'm still ironing out the kinks here, so it should be running smoothly in a few days. Get over there and become fans!
