As some of you might be aware, I recently began developing a YouTube channel. While many of the videos on it are public, none of them allow comments or ratings, and all contain a link to at least one richardbarron.net page. It is my hope that such a channel might encourage visitation to this site. (Corporate America calls this “driving traffic,” and from that it’s obvious they regard customers as cattle.)
I also recently republished the long-dormant richardbarron.net Facebook fan page. This is different than a personal page in that it doesn’t contain friends and I don’t use it to follow anything. If you visit it, and I hope you do, you can “like” the page, and it will appear (though with some inconsistency) in your Facebook news feed when I post something to it.
I don’t like using external services for hosting content, so everything you see on the fan page is actually from richardbarron.net, but I hope this will allow those whose main source of web contact is Facebook to become more engaged in the downright spectacular content on richardbarron.net.
‘“Like” our Facebook fan page for a chance to be someone who likes it!’
The odds of that contest do seem encouraging, but I never win contests, so…
