thanks..will skim it through fast...I simply hate how it looks, is presented,...to much of distraction in people liking, and the format everything is presented as news...and apart from that I simply dislike the whole facebook social media thing, so itīs a facebook thing I donīt like, nothing to do with newtek being there.

Too much irrellevant information for me to digest.

But..thatīs the way it is..I have been irritated about how youtube is presenting and having itīs site, and google plus which destroyed the picasa albums viewing functionality too.
If it werenīt for the fact that most people watches youtube, then I would only go for vimeo...donīt know whatīs up with those UI designer putting up so horrible user pages and functionality.

The same content looks to be on the Newtek Twitter feed too, so you could you use that instead. The same feed should also be published on this site somewhere like a blog.. perhaps it is?

I agree about Facebook, too noisy for me, and not keen on the lack of connecting to the feeds from outside. Twitter is more open in that way, more web friendly. I have a read-only Twitter account subscribed to a lot of feeds divided into lists. Then you have heaps of options to read those feeds, you don't need to use Twitter.

I recommend Flipboard in combination with pulling in custom Twitter lists such as "3D news" and in there you'll get everything from the sources you've added, like Newtek (twitter.com/newtekinc). Flipboard presents it very nicely once you set it up. They've recently opened up their web platform, so the app isn't needed (I prefer web to apps for browsing articles).

Humm...thanks for that suggestion, will take a look in to it.

Nice, after 18 years of being a LW user, I never even thought of a facebook account. Funny how mental patterns form. It really never occured to me. Liked, and looking forward to the updates!

Not that any of us have seen and reported. Uhhh... just how difficult is it for the Social Media Administrator to copy/paste that which is posted to Facebook/Twitter/LinkedIn into a forum here WHERE THEIR CORE (no pun intended) CUSTOMERS ARE!? If this has been going on, and we somehow have missed it, please point us to the Ongoing Customer and Public Relations stream in your own forum.

They do have a feed of sorts on the Lightwave community page (under tweets). I still don't think FB or T'r are as good a platform as a proper forum, but we need a forum on the Lightwave site (with thumbnails).

To be honest the advantage of FB is that they are reaching an audience outside "the Usual Suspects".
As in people, Trying to reach outside the industry, that might actually be interested in what NT has to say without preconceptions.
New blood is always welcome.
And if you check the positive responses on the articles, it honestly seems to be working.
I am serious as a heart attack when I say this, the mainstream 3d audience is a poisoned well for them.

Agreed!

I said the very same thing during the last thread where we were talking about communication. They have been ignoring the regular forum in favor of social media sites.

I took a couple of seconds to check the Newtek facebook site just now, but I just cant stand todays information presented on social medias..utterly cluttered with for me irrellevant likings and happenings, and all of the newtek stuff I really donīt need information about, then again..this is the site to check for me as a lightwaver foremost...

https://www.facebook.com/LightWave3D

I could recognize that I donīt like the facebook and other social media formats wich mostly is web page compressed with a long page continuously reloading when scrolling down( I hate that) to fit smart phones and the likes of that, I rarely use smart phones today to follow stuff, maybe it will change in the future..but following it on my home computer I donīt like, but hey, no one is forcing me:D have to live with it to miss lightwave stuff presented over there and not here..
Retrograde..Retrograde, use this forum or discard it:D

Forums and Facebook are not mutually exclusive. FB is geared more towards "latest buzz", with user contributions hit and miss in terms of quality. Content gets buried quickly.

Forums are better for concentrated and organized topical discussion that can be searched, archived and bumped at any time. I have learned much by reading and lurking this forum. People care about their words more on forums. Honest and thoughtful contributions from experienced users without any "like this, like that" nonsense and fragmentation.

Even the dark background of this forum is a relief.

A large news media firm I worked for spent years pushing people from their website to FB. Now they must pay FB to reach their own audience with promoted posts. It's quite sad. Websites become recruiters for Facebook which is not how it should be. The source of information should remain with the company website and feeds, with social media publishing that content down the chain. But FB wants to be the source, and they're making moves to convince businesses to post exclusive content to FB. The trouble is, this content might not even be seen by FB members, and can't be accessed/subscribed to outside of FB, which goes against the fundamental open nature of web and internet data sharing.

I don't have a Facebook account - I dislike the idea that everything posted to Facebook, belongs to Facebook - so I'm not very keen that links on the Twitter feeds are directed through Facebook.

Agreed.

LW3DG's Facebook presence doesn't seem to have much marketing cohesion or "voice" either, IMO. I find it overly noisy, and lacking in substance. If the Lightwave Facebook presence has a "mission", per se, that "mission" isn't clear from reading/browsing it.

Well we agree to disagree.
The focus is to sell Tricasters Units and present themselves a broadcast video specialists.
The core message is "WE KNOW BROADCAST" you know, the bread and butter of the company.
The page is aimed at a layperson in interested in broadcast video, not us 3D nerds, and honestly it works.
