With respect to Facebook, I will also admit to not being a big Facebook user, but I am religious about checking in to the Yahoo Colonial Coins Chat Board which probably has 100 plus members. There is not a Colonial question that can't be answered there. I can't remember how many years this has been around but I would say more than 10.
I forgot the the name of the company that Yahoo acquired to buy the ChatBoard/ChatRoom function (and our ChatGroup), but we were all on that before the acquisition. Before that, a very few of us were on the CompuServe Chat Board. I think the Colonial Chat room, which could not have been more than 10 people.....Don Mituzas, Neil Rothschild, Dennis Wierzba, Ray Williams, Dave Palmer....I can't remember the rest, met every Monday night 9PM EST for an hour. Being a Californian, I met several collectors there first.
Thanks again to Paul DeMarzio for his help in setting this up. Thanks also to John Nebel for making a programming change to the scripts that create the individual article files on the E-Sylum web archive. The web pages now use the article headline as the page title, and this will make links to the pages on Facebook much nicer.
After just one week we already have 61 followers. Most are existing subscribers, but over time I think we can attract others who may not have otherwise been aware of The E-Sylum or the Numismatic Bibliomania Society.
