so maybe you could make it
http://facebook.com/stampboards
or whatever is available.

It would be easier to remember than that long numerical thingy in the URL.

Good tip Chris .. oddly that obvious link you type is not available - anyone know how to secure it?

Firstly, a HUGE thanks to everyone who has 'liked' the page!

Can I have a moments self-indulgence?

Linn's have just liked our Facebook page. Very happy because their other 'Likes' are to Singapore Philatelic Museum, The Royal Philatelic Society London, USPS and sites of that ilk.

Based on the subject, the target is 20 000 :wink: . Not bad, but I. Think it would be good to have some intermediate targets. I have done my part, so I can't help.

2,100 is a huge number for near anything in the stamp world.

I hope YOU added to it, rather than querying it? :roll:

Christoph Gärtner GmbH & Co owns many of the largest stamp Auctions and stamp businesses in Europe, and his empire has 118 Facebook likes right now .....

https://www.facebook.com/auktionshaus.christoph.gaertner/

So I guess he is doing 20 times "worse" than us in your view? Wonder about that perhaps. :idea:

Girish .... not a facebook whizz, but I "think" you can only do do it once per account. :)

Margo mentioned numbers drop off a few now and again, so it seems folks can choose to "unlike" if they are tidying up the accounts they follow etc.

Hence it is important as many members as possible "like" us first up!

Here is the link to do that for those reading who have never got around to it yet. :)

Yes I pressed "like" on Stampboards FB page some time ago. Didn't meant to offend anyone. Your FB page is really nice.
Still, I just don't get it why so few likes. You pointed to the Christopher Gartner auction FB page with 5 posts. No wonder why it's only 118 likes... Why I think that 2000+ likes is not much ? Well, because our local Lithuanian philatelic FB group has 1500+ members. And it's VERY local: it's in Lithuanian language, 95% members are Lithuanians and Lithuania has no deep philatelic traditions (I didn't knew any stamp collector before I started collecting myself). Knowing that Lithuania's population is just 2.5 million it's quite a lot. So philatelic people are out there in FB.

The matter here is probably that FB people like more interactive "group" format than a "page".

There is a lot of great content on this site, I think if some of it was formatted into a Facebook post, there would be a lot more people headed this way.

I'm willing to see if I can put something together if needed.
