    And I'll bet that their info bars don't giant tilted plus signs, either!

    I must say I'm getting used to it. Even if there was a way to remove that message, I am becoming rather fond of my little crossy friend.

    Wait a minute. Cross? <tilts head>

    Sonofa....!

    While you're at it you can also send your sentiments to NBC, ABC, Fox, MySpace, Microsoft, Sony, Ubuntu, Victoria's Secret, Target, Walmart, AT&T, Verizon, and the millions of other companies that do the exact same thing.

    It's just marketing. I fail to see how you could not expect them to do this? Hell, in my opinion they're late in the game on the front.

    You are promoting Facebook and Twitter, and telling every single reader that comes here to go there! You are in trouble in more ways than one. I am seriously rethinking your direction and I absolutely think this community is being run by morons.

    wow
    might as well disable facebook on your forum as well, wouldn't want to confuse your OWN members

    wait, what happen to this statement??

    I'm taking a wild guess, but I think a few people on here are also on Twitter and Facebook, and might want to follow them on those sites as well.

    Forums and social networks are not mutually exclusive, and they can definitely be used constructively. I'm not a big fan of either myself, but I understand that there are many opportunities to leverage them to promote your site, brand, and product.

    Sure, some forum communities may have something to be concerned about, but in this case you're overreacting.

    These days, if you offer a product--any product--or have a brand to promote, you almost by default have to have some sort of social networking presence.

    I wouldn't mind if the notice went away, but it doesn't bother me in the least.

    Maybe you don't see it coming. You are either there or here, where are you?

    I just dont get all the flirtation with facebook and twitter. Why send users away from the company site? Why should I go to different sites like facebook and twitter to find information about the site that im actually interested in?

    Facebook and Twitter mirror the supporting of China, as we all run and buy all the cheap child labor junk made there, what are we doing to our home and communities. Seems like a good deal as we all run like sheep but at what price? We are loosing mass in every way. Its the demise of the USA and more...I see this the same way with those two social giants and it scares me.

    I don't get it. I see why you posted that announcement, but I truly don't see it as a good thing for vbulletin communities. You are speeding up fragmentation to say the least. And I don't think its stoppable.
