Activity from facebook discussion

Facebook Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes

Posted by on Fri, February 11th, 2011 at 11:00 am

As I said yesterday, in one hour we’ll be implementing the new look version of our Facebook fan page – again, here’s the shot of what it will look like:

Maybe the biggest change is the removal of tabs from the top of the wall – however you can still find those objects in the menu to the left, under our logo. Another big part of Facebook’s changes is that you won’t see our status updates unless you’ve interacted with us in the last two weeks – to always have our updates show up in your feed, click “Edit Options” at the bottom of your news feed and select “All of your Friends and Pages” – of course, what you choose to do is entirely up to you:

Some other changes include a language filter and the blocking of specific keywords, which we think will curb the abusive in inappropriate language that occurs on our wall from time to time.

The biggest change we’re implementing, though, is in Discussions. Until today, we’ve allowed people to post threads in discussions asking for votes, likes, and other assistance to win contests and stuff. While I totally understand the desire to tap into our very powerful community, it’s simply gotten out of hand. That’s why we’ve decided on this compromise:

I’m going to create an official “Vote for Me thread in Discussions” with our disclaimer at the top. It is the ONLY place where you can post those solicitations. If we see them anywhere else, we’re going to delete them. We love that you’re all so active on our wall, but we want to encourage more conversation about things going on with our site and in the world, and less about promoting the contests of individuals. We’re really excited to bring about these changes, and I wouldn’t be surprised if a code showed up at some point…

Catch your ZZZZZ’s

I am a huge advocate of sleep. I typically require at least 8 hours of sleep, or else I get cranky the next day, which isn’t much fun for the people around me. For the next week, we are going to bring you a series of videos that will give you tips and tricks for ... Read More »

Let’s Talk Facebook…

Howdy, Swaggernauts! In case you didn’t know, one thing TSG does every day is head on over to Facebook and start the day off right, by talking turkey (and every other kind of bird and topic) with YOU. I love talking with you and hearing what you have to say about whatever questions pop into ... Read More »

TSG’s Got Somethin’ to Talk About Every Morning

Posted by on Wed, February 24th, 2010 at 8:00 am
If you’re on the Swagbucks Facebook page every weekday, TSG’s got a brand new discussion for all of Swag Nation to participate in every weekday. Sometimes I talk about TV shows and movies that are out, sometimes I talk about music, sometimes I just like to ask what color socks you’re wearing. But, every weekday, ... Read More »

Your Great Ideas Pay Off

Posted by on Fri, September 11th, 2009 at 2:36 pm
Swagbucks is what it is today because our users share some of the load in creating all the new and awesome features we introduce here and there. It’d be downright foolish to insist on only using our own ideas when our own users come up with fantastic ideas! In January of this year, we asked ... Read More »

What’s TSG Talkin’ About Today?

Posted by on Fri, August 28th, 2009 at 5:03 pm
Every day during the week, the Facebook branch of Swag Nation has deep conversation about stuff like what they need to start their day, their biggest pet peeves and what movie disappointed them this summer. Sometimes they are more serious; what do you think of Michael Vick returning to the NFL? How do you feel ... Read More »
