New leonardcohenforum.com group on Facebook

Postby Womanfromaroom » Sat Jul 11, 2009 7:49 pm

Just to let you people know that - with your permission, Jarkko, I hope; otherwise, please let me know, and I'll delete it instantly - , I have just created a leonardcohenforum.com group on Facebook, for I have a growing number of Forum-related contacts there and I thought it might just be nice for everyone who is present both there and on this forum to organize themselves and to get connected in a more systematic form as well... For all those who are interested, the group can be found as: "leonardcohenforum.com members on Facebook".
Thanks!
Edit: It is of course not intended as a "rival" Internet presence, but only for those who are perhaps interested in some extra information on who is on Facebook as well and maybe as to who is "behind" some of the forum nicknames!

Hi Ann!

What a wonderful idea! I have already responded. Thanks so very much. It's another link to keep us all together and sharing.

All the best,
Diana

You know, that "proving" thing is more to discourage the usual "spammers"; I suppose taking the trouble to request to join already shows that one is serious about it, and even if it then should become clear that someone is not interested in Leonard Cohen, but pursues commercial aims, it is always possible to get rid of that particular "person" (or company, or whatever) again... But keeping it a "closed" group just makes sure that this does not happen too often! So don't worry, you should have been accepted by now!

Yes, brilliant idea! I'm already in a couple of Leonard Cohen Facebook Groups, so will definitely request to join this one. I am still on a high after Saturday at Weybridge!!! :D :D :D :D :D

Sadly, I don't have a facebook account and since I already spend waaay too much time on this forum, to my husband's dismay, I am a bit leery of starting one. It is a wonderful endeavor Anne and I am mightly tempted. The interest in this is so high - you hit a mother lode!

Best regards,
Mary

I hope you have got a flat rate?? :D
Yes, we'll talk in Barcelona - athoughTicketmaster still haven't sent a confirmation. But, anyway, I have emailed them, so let's see, fingers crossed...

Hi Mary! You can do it! It's easy to sign up and you don't need to accept all the 3000 "friends" who suddenly appear out of nowhere! Just give it a little try for a week or so..... And there's not just us. There's Dino and Roscoe and Chris.... Are you getting a little more tempted heh..heh..heh.. ;-)
