After talking to several people about the interaction with my website and getting my blog a little bit more online presense I decided to take a very important step forward and do an experiment using facebook. As you may all know, facebook is the most important social network out there and I trust that getting my blog into this environment will allow us to become a stronger community allowing me to better know you and allowing all of you to better know me. Of course, I think that hardly any other forex related individual is as open as me from a personal and business standpoint but I believe in transparency and I believe that only good things can come out when intentions are the best :o). On today's post I want to talk to you a little bit about this decision, the consequences I expect it to have and the decisions I have taken to prevent bad things from happening within the newly formed group.
Truth be told, I have never been the biggest fan of facebook. For the first three years in which I used it I barely had any friends because I kept on rejecting everybody's invitations. I certainly thought that facebook was nothing more than an invasion of privacy and giving everybody I knew the chance to join me as a friend didn't seem like the best of ideas. I certainly opened my facebook account to please my girlfriend, who likes to send me messages, cute stuff, etc, but I had never taken facebook seriously as either a way to keep in touch with people or do any kind of business.
Of course, the years passed and I started to change my mind. After allowing people to become my friends and adding a bunch of people from my high school and university I started to understand the good things about this platform and how to control the "reach" it has over my privacy. Finally you are the person who decides what to post and what not to post on your facebook account and you also decide how sensitive this information is when you accept new friends. Personally I have found facebook much more useful as a business development tool rather than a game-like website many people become addicted to.
From a blog stand-point I believe that facebook will be very useful in the sense that it will allow me to get a real grasp of how big my audience really is and what your expectations and opinons are. This is the reason why I have created a facebook link which takes you to the newly founded facebook group dealing with this website. You can join this group and become a fan of my blog :o) and this way you can start commenting, leaving messages, suggestions, etc without having to have a gmail or open-access account which is currently a requirement to leave comments on this blog. Of course, I am absolutely sure that there are a bunch of spammers and affiliates lined up to fill my group's blog with trash, reason why I have completely disabled the posting of links on the wall and group's forum.
So my expectations with this facebook group are high :o) I want you to join if you want, leave whatever comments, questions or suggestions you may have and help me take my writing and the contents of my blog to the next level. I will also be able to better hear your requests, your opinions and to help you reach that goal of further profitability and long term sustained growth in forex automated trading. By the way, you can also become my friend if you want by adding me to your facebook using the badge below :o) (thats my girlfriend by my side by the way !)
