I know it may seem like an extra burden, but you can link the Twitter account to Facebook and kill 2 birds with 1 stone...and you can select which tweets go to Facebook. And it's all free, so no real downside. I've set up a couple of fan pages before, so if there are any questions, just shoot.


Will do! Thanks!

IMO

PG > ION > Facebook

In my growing age I am more and more paranoid about technology and what the future holds. I guess to check out the the fights I'll have to sign back on to facebook. It has been over a year from when I was on it last. I use to love it when it was only intended for college students. When it became like myspace that was pretty much it for me. IDK mabe I'm too opinionated.

I got rid of my facebook page after reading about how good a haircut looked, that someone was going shopping, stories of things(on a scale form horrible to hilarious) I did when I was younger getting posted for my son/nephews/nieces to see, how good the meatloaf was last night, etc. way too many times. Facebook can farkle itself as far as I'm concerned, but anyone can create a fake account to watch the fights if they are like me so it's not a big deal, and it is a very smart and forward thinking idea by the UFC to do this.

I think it's pretty smart.

I also think it is pretty smart to un-like the UFC page as soon as the fights are over. They post a bunch of nonsense to that page.

Agreed. Pictures of fighters with fans is not something I care about, yet it makes up about 98% of their posts.

On the other hand, if I were to remove people from my friends' list for posting nonsense, I'd have nothing to read.

Or you can just remove them from your news feed...that's what I do with annoying relatives.

Oh I do...the "Hide" feature is my friend. Oh, and the "Block this App" feature.

I only see a 'group' and a fake page by an obviously butthurt former player. The group is great and all, but a page is better suited to the Playground IMO...especially as far as attracting new players.
