Facebook's "Westone Guitars"

Post by The Chad on Mon Jul 25, 2011 8:43 am

I just joined Facebook's "Westone Guitars" group. If you're on there, let me know who you are, I'm cleverly disguised as Chad Koons. It's good to be able to put a face with the name.

Looks like a pretty good little group. Very Happy Check it out.

Should be a "request to join" or something like that. Click it. It will let you know that the request has been sent. They'll approve you in a day.

When I went on, there was a request to join button I clicked. It was on the top towards the right side I think! I can't see it anymore, since I joined.

I think you now have to be added by someone who's already a member. Add me Chay Lockyer as a friend and I'll add you in. Although it's a pretty poor group and pretty pointless when we have this wonderful site here!

I keep a weather on what's happening in there, but really, I feel I have all I want about Westone in here without going to FB... that said, at least the people on there are keeping the flag flying...

Our forum is much better indeed, the Facebook group is only good for those of us who like the connectivity of Facebook.

I think we have the best guitar forum of any brand. Cool I read a posting somewhere that said "Westone guitars have a huge cult following". cheers

Shocked "Huge", eh?! Laughing There's about 20 regular posters, and of that maybe 10 really hardcore 'toners.... Laughing Cool However, I'm real happy with what we have in here....

A bit harsh, Barry?! We use it to let the folks back home keep abreast of what we're doing half a world away, and find it very good for that purpose indeed!! However, that's all we do use it for... Laughing

Facebook is among the most poorly programmed websites I've ever had to use, just as bad or worse than myspace. Really wish someone would invent a social networking site that didn't suck. Neutral I don't mind facebook for some things, but it certainly likes to randomly not work sometimes.

what you have to do is run FACEBOOK through a translation tool. The results are funny for native speakers...

In German: GESICHTSBUCH .... In a back translation, I can read your face like a book.

Other languagues, just try...

But in case someone want to let us join, just add me: Hendrik Jentzsch

And Barry, you using mail, this and few more forums. Now step into the 21th century.... Cool

Cheers and have a nice day...

Laughing Yeah, i joined a couple of months ago when i was back with my friends on the east coast. Why i did i have no idea. It can be really useful to keep in touch with family/friends as John pointed out, but there are people that post 10 times a day or more. Who the hell has time for that? I have mixed feelings but it can suck you in and waste your time for sure, then again, so does the internet. Us old cats can remember a time when there wasn't internet, remember how you spent your time back then?

Hi Barry,

I agree, Twitter is rubbish. Facebook seems to be quite handy to keep in touch with some friends and colleguagues far away. But don't let drag you to much into it. It can be a waste of time...
By the way, I'm also in software development, always in front with all the new technologies. Cool
And from a technological perspective all this social networking things are mostly utterly rubbish from the UI, the handling etc....

Best regards, keep on rocking

Tell you what, if you want to see how it should be done, check out the Danelectro site on Facebook. It would be nice if the Westone one was as user friendly IMO

http://www.facebook.com/pages/Neptune-Bound-The-Ultimate-Danelectro-Guitar-Guide/106569706094931?ref=ts

Personally, as far as Westones go, I prefer it here.

As far as Squier 51s go Ilike their own forum

As far as Teles go, I love the TDPRI

As far as Gibsons, I love MLP

And resonators theres little better than www.michaelmesser.co.uk

The Danelectro forum is not so good though, which is why the Facebook page is really cool.

Maybe with this great site theres no need for a Westone Facebook page......... Neutral

Facebook (and Macintosh) is for computer users who have velcro where laces and zippers should be. clown

p.s. You cannot see the Danelectro page unless you sign up with Facebook. This is user friendly?

While an opinion and perhaps true it does give one pause to consider the target market and if it is being served. Exactly how popular Facebook, MySpace and other social sites are is not really up for debate.

Unless the debate is are there 100's of millions of users or multiple 100's of millions of users.

Might just be an accurate comment on the global society as a whole as well, or at least the upcoming generation of users.

Therein lies the sad truth methinks, the general "dumbing down" of society in all aspects of life. Common sense, independent thinking, personal responsibility, all are victims.

It is a cruel irony that in the most technologically advanced period in our history, with unprecedented communications ability, the content being distributed on that technology is primarily utter drivel. Smart phones? Not hardly. It is to laugh. And to weep.

Hey Chad,
I'm a member on there too!
You ought to be able to find me because I think that I was the last one who posted... had a sneaky dig at letting a few more peeps know that my Clipper Six was up for sale! Laughing
Don't bother trying to find me through a normal Facebook search though because my privacy settings are so flipping private, even I can't find me! Laughing scratch

I have to agree with most of the comments made on here about Facebook, but there again, perhaps some of the newer members on these forums only found out about us through that very group, so it is good in a way! On a personal note, I traced cousins through Facebook, that I hadn't seen for almost forty three years! Smile

I do not often stir up highballs or martinis but the springcoiled do-hickey is for straining out the goods from the crushed ice, a long spoon for general mixing, a combination can/bottle opener, one of a pair of chopsticks (pickle/olive spears) and the plastic glasses came along with the case but I've not yet needed to use them.

The selection is actually a stash kept out of my wifes clutches. Usually there is bourbon kept in it in case I run across any branch water that is in need of improvement. drunken
