Social Networking (Twitter, Facebook) + Forums

Post by Doctor Inferno on September 2nd 2009, 10:51 am

I have noticed that more and more forum admins are using Twitter to promote their forums, broadcast updates about the forum or simply to follow the trend in having Twitter as part of the website.

Just curious if you are using this method to promote the forum, have this method have worked for any you guys? Or what do you use Twitter in this case for?

yeah I tried it out Smile
Had better luck with facebook (join a large group about what my forum's about and promote my site there lol! - and get some friends xP)

yeah twitter didn't do much for my forum
but all popular ones have a "follow us on twitter" page.. so I figured...
eh.. .xD

Well it all comes down to exactly how you use twitter and what content you have on your forum.

If you use twitter only to redirect to other sites , you will only get a few new followers.
If you have good content on your forum and advertise it with twitter, there is a good chance you can gain new members.

But if you type in a load of spam and add a link to your forum you will also "break your forum record"
Twitter API applications have bots that track down links and automatically visit them.

So after posting a tweet and you check your whose online, don't get happy at the increase of users. Its most probably bots.
But these bots are not negative. Whether a human or bot enters you site its counted as a visit. And page visits is a big factor in site promotion.


So once again twitter depends on the data you have on your forum.
when I browse tweets and get linked to awesome sites , with awesome content I bookmark them... So the twitter system works, but to what extent depends solely on how you run your site and what content you have

I also have a Facebook fan page for my site. It helps a lot especially in gaining visitor's trust because of the good comments members post on the Wall.

But overall, I'd say these two methods don't give much new members to the site, but it makes my members come back.

I use Myspace and Twitter with TwitterFeed. Twitterfeed lets you feed your rss feed to your Twitter. I have my Twitter and Myspace synced so the feed from my forum goes to my twitter and my myspace.

If you want to do this you need:
-a Twitter account
-a twitterfeed account

Sign up for Twitter and Twitterfeed (in that order) then for the feed link put: http://yourforum.forumurl.com/rss or: http://www.yourforum.com/rss.

If you want to link your twitter to your myspace, click on My Account then click on Sync.

The best top online social networking sites offer online opportunities for sharing and associating with others in the online community. Social networking sites like MySpace.com, Twitter.com, and Facebook.com, along with countless online community forums, allow people to associate with one another from around the globe, sharing in an online community.Networking sites like these allow for a large community of people to connect and share online in an online community that wouldn’t have ever been possible without many of these social networking sites.

I use Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and Myspace to advertise my forum and my websites. I also use my signature on some forums and email accounts to advertise them.

My forum is very new so I don't know how well the advertising is working for it. My sites definitely get more hits as a result. If it isn't against the rules on a site, I advertise whenever and wherever I can.

I think this method is good only if there is not abuse...difficult for humanity...
If you have only one message on twitter during 1 minute, a lot of peaople can see it and some of them can go to see you website.
BUT it is toxic when there is only this kind of message!
So may administrators ahve no mercy for that kind of message...
I think it's the same for every social networks (old and news) like Facebook, linkedin, foursquare, outlyf...

I think that Facebook and Twitter help - Twitter especially.

As long as you have plenty of activity in your forums and you have a lot of news to tweet about on Twitter and post on Facebook, then you're going to get more followers and friends which will lead to more members!

We use both twitter and facebook. Though we find our twitter and facebook has more follows/likes than our forum has members! It's quite a pain really but it's good to see support for the site at least. Smile
