Hi everyone

i am sure many people have facebook pages dedicated to their builds. Would like to follow them but you can't search peoples signature lines for keywords, so finding them is a bit difficult... Wanna respond with your boat build facebook pages?

this is mine:

There is a hesitancy for a lot of members of this forum to get involved with Facebook due to privacy concerns and other issues. (I'm one of those )
After all, that is what this forum is designed and monitored for.

Thanks for the reply. Just FYI: this forum is far from private. True it is moderated and you need a login to post, but to read all you need is the internet and a few smart search terms. So everyone that is posting roughly where they live, etc is sending that to the world without any security. Facebook at least allows me to pick who can see what I post and limit it if I want. But that is not really the point... I love this forum and check in a few times a week and will continue to do so. It is great for getting directed advice, asking questions, etc. But, Facebook is better for posting progress pictures and following others progress without having to search it out. I know many other builders use both since I follow both their Facebook and forum. My goal was to see how many of us do both, and for those who do, hopefully I can follow their builds on fb to make that part easier.

benpetre,

We at Glen-L have provided a place for everyone to post their progress photos so that all the builds can be found in one place. We wish you and everyone else would use it, because that's pretty much where everyone goes first to see photos of the builds.
It is here:
http://boatbuilders.glen-l.com/boatbuilding-galleries/

If you post your pictures in our photo galleries (the above link) multitudes more people will find and view your photos. If you put anything about boats/boating/building a boat/boat pictures/etc. in a search engine our website comes up first every time. You'll get far more exposure than on facebook or any other website.

even though I have my page on face book I still post my build on the forum and http://boatbuilders.glen-l.com/boatbuilding-galleries/
As John stated. my site is more of brief intro page but for detail info I refer people here.
