They operate on similar concepts. In my opinion, Facebook is a more "family-friendly" social network though.

Agree with what Bob said. Both are social networks.

Myspace originally started off to be a social networking service where musicians could interact with their fans. AS a result one of the things you can do is to have music playing on your home page, which can tend to be annoying especially if you are not expecting it. with Myspace you can customize your page where with Facebook you can not.

Facebook was started by some college guy initially just to interact within his college it soon grew to other campuses and eventually to the rest of the world in general. You can't change the look of your pages or have music playing all the time. You can find things a lot easier on Facebook than on Myspace. People also tend to be a lot nicer on Facebook.

Ditto. Been a member of the Group for quite a while. Which reminds me that lately I've noticed with the new Facebook changes that some of the things I was a "Fan" of when I see a friend has joined to be a fan, I see that I am no longer a fan or at least they give that "become a fan" link, which usually indicates you are not yet a fan. OH WELL that's "progress" I guess.

Oh man you had to go there Bob?? I've been trying to resist the pull and my wife finally signed up a month ago and she's hooked. I vowed I wouldn't join but I may just have to now. Thanks for enabling the weak Bob!

I thought we had a thread for people to post a picture of what they look like. I forget which board it was on. I'm trying to look for it.

For those of you that are now fans, do you have any thoughts on the type of information you'd like to see provided on TCC's Facebook page?

One thing that comes to mind: If someone sets up a TCC get-together, posting that as a Facebook event would be a plus.

I know we have a ton of things dedicated on here to this stuff already...but here are a couple of ideas.


a. Create Photo albums for cards that could be considered 'pull of the month' worthy or something similar. Instead of flipping through pages, we could look through the album to see what everyone has opened.

b. Possibly create events that show when people are doing box breaks, trade nights, ustream, etc. so that everyone will have an idea of what is going on.

c. Have a couple of contests that are only on the facebook page (get more people to join the fan page and it would possibly get new members to join TCC by doing this.)

d. Post links to stories regarding the hobby industry and send updates every month or so about what is going on the facebook page and TCC.


Facebook is starting to become much more than a social network. The possibilities and ideas to come up with are endless and I think continuing to upgrade the page and doing little things to get more 'fans' will also encourage more people to sign up for TCC. There are probably thousands of people on facebook who probably collect cards and have no idea of TCC or have never heard of internet trading. How can we get them to join...
bob_TCC
Thanks for the ideas, Aaron!
