Facebook and our Community

When I first started around this place, the SitePoint Community consisted of nothing but… the forums. Now I’m not saying for a moment that that was a bad thing, but times have changed and now we’re about a WHOLE lot more than that.

Yup, I’m talking about Facebook.

I’ve spent the last month or so working pretty hard on making our Facebook fan page not only look good, but also offer you information that you might struggle to find elsewhere. There are job ads (we need devs!), some free stuff, and right now I’m running a campaign called Get To Know Us. Each week I bio one of our staff and at the end of the month there is a quiz with pretty cool prizes.

So if you haven’t checked it out already, head over to Facebook and become a fan of ours. You know you want too… :wink:

As an aside, I’m always keen to hear what it is that you’d like to see from us, so make a note on our wall if you have any cool ideas.

One of the better facebook fan pages I’ve seen. Well done!

I’m following and it looks great, loving the design. :slight_smile:

Cool, why don’t you start a new thread about it? This one is about the fanclub. :wink:

On the forums, It’s the place where many of us chat and help each other out (Facebook is more of a fanclub) :stuck_out_tongue: :wink:

Do you mean on the forums? Or are you referring to Facebook?

Thanks :slight_smile:

interesting, already have 7000+ members

PHP jobs you say? I’ll take one, no, two.

How about I start next Thursday, around 4? :cool:

Looks good Hawk, good luck!

It is true!
We are actively searching for a Lead Developer to guide the sitepoint.com Dev team AND a talented PHP Developer who rocks the PHP world.

It would be a bonus if they can tell a few good jokes, play foosball, and can hold their own in karaoke.


If this sounds like you, please get in touch ASAP.


Interviews are happening this week and next. Don’t delay!

I’m not willing to move to another nation (just yet) but I’ve got a loud voice and can operate a robot. My suggestion is that we find an all-terrain remote controlled vehicle (such as a tank or helicopter) that can dock and recharge, and I’ll keep an eye on everyone via web-cam (attached to the vehicle) and moan over Skype. And if that doesn’t give me geek credibility, I don’t know what would… seriously though, I’m not a Facebook fan but I’m all for more community related content. :smiley:

Edit: Actually I would like to perhaps see something that allows the members to better showcase what their up too (outside the community). It would be really cool to give people something more than a basic profile and signature so that visitors can see the quality of our regulars knowledge. Just an idea to encourage networking!

To entice people? To what?
For the record, we really do have two job positions open and are interviewing at the moment.

That job thing is to entice people. They cannot possibly have a job for any developer asking for one. I think your sarcasm suggested that much:D

Hey, if you’re willing to move to Melbourne then we’re happy to interview you! :slight_smile:
