Me and Lieven have been quite busy dressing up our Facebook page, and I think we want to do an official announcement of it here on the website.
Primarily, I think the Facebook page would be an extension of the main site where we can continue to talk about headphones in a more casual manner. For instance, I often have things that I want to share with the readers but is not quite “full-article” material. Although I’ve been sharing a lot of that on our Twitter channel, the 140 words limitations among other things puts some limits to how much sharing can be done on Twitter. With the Facebook page, however, sharing and discussions flow naturally and I think that would work very well to sustain our continuous round-the-clock desire to talk about headphones.
I also realize that many of you check in to the website a few times a week only to find the same article still posted. Yes, more frequent updates would be good. But we have our obligation to keep the articles we post on Headfonia.com to meet a certain standard, and making short frequent updates are not easy because of that. Not anymore. By having a Facebook page, I am no longer scared to post things I have on my head that may not be well-written, or backed with a well exposed, studio shot photography. It can be a one liner thing that I happen to have in mind. It can be an interesting picture, sort of a “Have you seen this headphone?” kind of thing. It can be a short poll. Whatever it is, I think posting on the Facebook Page is a lot less demanding for us, hence allowing us to have more casual, more frequent updates.
Finally, cross-sharing from the social platform is much more natural and easier to do. Meaning I can hear a lot more from you guys. More discussions and more interactions. I think it’s going to be awesome there.
The URL for our Facebook page is www.facebook.com/headfonia, and I invite you guys to press the LIKE button on it.
