I'd like to suggest that this site create a "Group" on Facebook. I recently joined Facebook, and have joined several 'groups' so for, including Fox Nation and US Navy Submarines. Facebook is a great network. I've made contact with folks I haven't heard from in 30 plus years. If we had a 'group' for FALFiles, it would be a good way to get the word out about this fine weapon and this great forum.

Go for it man.

One problem is though, Facebook is kinda picky about requiring you use your true identity when setting up an account.

Lotta folks here like to hide behind the anonymity of a nom de plume like "tailpipe," or "brewswillis" or some other such thing that doesn't directly tie into their true identity. I don't think they'll let "Butt Ranger" register, let alone discuss his conquests and agenda.

Of course, I have a secret list of exactly who everybody here is. :devil:

I don't see Facebook as being a suitable alternative or mirror of the FAL Files.
A Facebook page would be like The High Road lite.

I wish you all the best in your endeavor.
I might even stop by in my "real" capacity.

I agree, I would not want the fact that my name is Joe Dumas and I own 6 (or is that 7?) Fal's or L1A1's be public knowledge. Criminals and the guvermunt take note of such things..:sad:

You don't have to go into while you are in the group. You could just think he FAL is awesome and have never owned one. I'm on the book and would be down to join a FAL group.

"Registration and Account Security

Facebook users provide their real names and information, and we need your help to keep it that way. Here are some commitments you make to us relating to registering and maintaining the security of your account:

1. You will not provide any false personal information on Facebook..."


So you can probably get by with a lot of stuff... until you get caught.
