"People wanna go online and check out their [Nats], so why not build a [Nats site] that offers that. I'm talking about taking the entire social experience of [following the Nats] and putting it online." - The Social Network
I just discovered this new site, which seems loosely based on "The Facebook" that was featured in David Fincher's film, "The Social Network" this past year. Since some of you are already on "The Facebook", I thought we'd make some effort to take advantage of both platforms to spread the good word about the Washington Nationals and Federal Baseball as far as possible. Here's how it can happen...
• You're on Facebook. You also frequent Federal Baseball. Don't you wish there were a way to do both of them together? Well there's good news...YOU CAN!!
The first way is just to "like" our Facebook fan page [We love our 36 "friends" but they're lonely, join them!"]. There's a link on the bottom of the right sidebar here at Federal Baseball, click the "Like" button THERE (not HERE as in the image that follows, the one right below here is a screencap, but there are like buttons everywhere, you'll see...):
"We lived on farms, then we lived in cities, and now we're going to live on [Federal Baseball]."
• All of our front-page articles plus everything from our Twitter feed (@Federalbaseball) get posted to our Facebook page, so it's simple to keep up with everything going on here when you're spending time over there.
There are also a lot of ways you can share what we do here with your friends on Facebook.
• At the bottom of every post on the front page of the site is a "Like" button, which you can use to share that post with your Facebook friends. This will show up as a "So and so likes..." a story from Federal Baseball on your Facebook wall:
• On the interior pages of our site (i.e. off the front page), the same "Like" button can be found at the top right of the article. This is true of featured articles as well as user-contributed FanPosts:
Marylin Delpy: What are you doing?
Mark Zuckerberg[Ed Chigliak]: [on his laptop] Checking in to see how it's going in Bosnia.
Marylin Delpy: Bosnia. They don't have roads, but they have [Federal Baseball]?"
• While pretty much everything we write here is worthy of your Facebook promotion, maybe you feel like actually reading the article before deciding if you want to share it with your friends. That's fine, because there's a "Like" button waiting for you at the bottom of every story!:
• What about FanShots, you say? We've got you covered. Another "Like" button at the bottom of each FanShot, so you can promote others' as well as your own contributions to Federal Baseball:
• Finishing up an especially poignant or hilarious comment that you wish could be easily cross-posted to your Facebook wall? Just click the checkbox next to the "Post" button before publishing your comment and you'll be given the opportunity to send it through the intertubes right to your Facebook wall for all to see:
• So go check out our Facebook fan page, become a fan (i.e. "Like" it), and enjoy a new way to bring your loves of Facebook and Federal Baseball together.
