    I don't want to get into politics, so I will leave it at that.

        Good job Cindy and others, the page looks good! Maybe I can get some of my (brand-xers) friends to check it out too!

          Great Job Cindy & Bob. It takes a lot of thought, time, coordination and future time to monitor an Internet Group properly. This site is a great example of 'done right!'

          Amused by anti-FB-posters. The Internet is a 'salad bar' and if you wasted your time posting a neg it's your loss. Not likely your comments will convert anyone to your opine. LOL.

            Facebook does not bother me at all.

            As I stated in a previous post, I am a member, but I do not frequent it on a daily basis like I do here.

              I think Richard may be commenting that he does not see an obvious link to Join the SDC, not join the page. Perhaps a pinned post with membership information would be worthwhile. There are several unofficial Studebaker groups on Facebook as well as Chapter pages. Great to see an official SDC page! Well done!

                Let's hope it is not as draconian as SDC forum.

                  My hat is off to Cindy and Bob for their accomplishment as it may bring others into our fold by sheer new exposure. However at my ripe age I'll stick with the life I already have and leave this social media stuff to the young un's whom seem to be wired into it. Good luck to all involved.

                    Facebook is just a tool.
                    Like any tool, there are only three things you can do with it.
                    Use it right...
                    Use it wrong....
                    Don't use it....
                    The negative about Facebook is that more than a third of the world uses it. That'll surely turn some people off, just by the number.

                    I do get a kick out of the adjectives people use for something they do not use, or choose not to learn how to use..
                    I also get a kick out of the SDC's knowledge of 'Tweeter' and 'Facebooks'

                      Happy for you guys that want to use Facebook.
                      I don't. I have visited, and sat with kids (my oldest is 40, so "kids" may be a bit misleading). I cringe every time PBS, or any organization wants me to "like" them on Facebook.
                      Just not for me. But, on top of that, one of my really good friends (used to be a Snap-On tool dealer, which is where I met him) does computer repair and IT work for a living.
                      He knows how to set up the best security available, and can install firewalls for businesses. HE won't get on Facebook for security reasons. Good enough for me. There is ALREADY way too much friggin info available on me out there floating around in cyber space. Don't get me wrong, I understand the "tool" aspect, but for me personally, it isn't worth it.

                      Having said all that, I am heading up a non profit organization that needs to raise money. We will have a Facebook page, because it really is a great tool to reach younger folks. Fortunately for me, I have some really great computer and tech savvy board members who can handle it, and will be doing all the "facebooking". Me? I will be writing letters and doing grant requests to the foundations. We all have our strengthes, AND our weaknesses, as well as our preferences and prejudices.

                        I started a Face Book page when we opened 'Studebaker of Australia'. Chris Skinner and I are constantly posting Studebaker related articles, stories and photographs and have over 1200 followers who often comment and share our posts worldwide. Unashamedly we do use it to help the business, that's why we started it. But it is also a great source of information, I post photos of repairs or issues I've had with my Studes for the benefit of all, it's a very active page. We also have a Pinterest page, Instagram site, and a You Tube Channel that I update with various Studebaker only photos and videos. My reasoning is that to increase my company's sales I have to raise the public awareness of the brand, and get people to THINK STUDEBAKER! Not to mention I'm a Stude Nut.

                        Cindy, we have already made contact about our respective FB pages, and feel free to share any of our articles or posts, also from our other media platforms I mentioned above.

                          Thank you for volunteering your time and taking on this endeavor to reach out to a larger audience about Studebakers, including the most important demographic: the younger audience. And thank you for doing it while coordinating with the SDC team, in an effort to augment the entire club.

                              Praise the Lord and about time! Let's hope Twitter and Instagram are next in the 'To-Do' list. Why is this important? Well, for each month that I read bout how the Drivers Club need to draw in new and younger blood ~ this is the start of being able to achieve that end... well done SDC!

                              BTW, there's already SOC UK (Studebaker Owners Club UK) on FB
