    This has become popular on a lot of tech blogs, company sites, and the like. I know we try to "Digg" reviews and all, but I think more people have a Facebook account than have a Digg account. Might get us some more visitors.

    we had one on the reviews, it was barely used and slowed down the page load
    DanishDevil and n-ster say thanks.

    I think its a good idea. I also think the eason it didnt work before was because their is no maintained TPU FB page. It would need to be updated posted on frequently and more or less used. social networking is work in itself.

    I completely missed it as well! If it's slowing down the page load, then I understand. Maybe if they improve the speed of things, we can try it again.

    Next time let us know instead of ninjaing it!

    Personally I would like the Web 2.0 Manager position to help mediate TPU and social media sites like Facebook.

    I hope that the position is still being evaluated and will come to fruition so we can share the tech side of our lives with others.

    I once asked for a "no thanks" button to be added to the bottom so people could rack up "no thanks" for giving subjectively bad-advice or to demerit negative-posts.

    If it didn't slow down TPU I would be all for it. Maybe we should try it again see if it is any quicker now or what does the almighty w1zz have to say?
