How come this forum has so few likes on facebook even though it has a lot of traffic? Are people ashamed to be affiliated with this forum or something? Sheesh. Other sites have thousands of likes. Why do we have so few?

Come on guys, please go to the forum index page and click the Like button at the top. Be proud of our movement!

Hi all,
I just created a Google Plus page for HappierAbroad. I'm not sure yet what to do with it yet though. Do I just post updates there regularly and put Google Plus follow buttons on all my sites, and hope it gets shared and promoted around? lol

Anyway, here is the link to it:

https://www.google.com/+happierabroad888

Please go to it and click the Follow button, or Friend us and Share us, or whatever.

Do any of you use Google Plus? If so, let me know if you have any suggestions.

It's kind of a pain to maintain and post updates to Facebook, Twitter, and now Google Plus. I ought to hire someone to do this. Sigh.

Updates:

I've moved the share buttons to the top right corner of the forum, right above the mailing list sign up box, to make room for the google ads.

The follow us buttons are now on the forum index page in the right sidebar.

Winston you should start a Pinterest and Instagram page for happierabroad as well to catch the younger crowd. A lot of young people are no longer very active on Facebook. Pinterest is really easy to use and basically acts a storage cloud for anything interesting photos you have, of which you have many. Admittedly a lot of true happier abroaders reject social media and aren't active on it, but still your aim is to give your site more traffic and increase hits too, which will in turn increase your income.

I considered it before. However, most of our viewers and fans don't use those site. Pininterest and Instagram are mostly used by women and families to share their family photos or travel photos. Single freethinking men don't usually use those sites. So it's not worth my time to bother with them. However, we do have share buttons on this site for people to share our links on Pininterest and Instagram though. I don't have time to maintain anything on those sites anyway, only Facebook and Twitter. I don't even bother with Google Plus anymore, very few people use it.

Just to let you all know, if you want to attact more views to your topic or any topic here, you can easily share a topic thread here on our Facebook group (which now has over a thousand members) using the share buttons above. Heres how.

1. First you gotta join our FB group of course. Go to www.facebook.com/groups/happierabroad2 and subscribe and wait to be approved.
2. Then go to the forum topic page that you want to share.
3. Click on the F facebook button above in the social media buttons below the banner in the header.
4. A pop up will appear from Facebook. It will have the title of the topic page in it. Where it says "share on your timeline" select "share in group". Then type "hap" and the HA group will automatically appear under the field if you're a member so you dont have to type it all out. Select it.
5. Write a comment in the comment section if you want.
6. Click submit. When the post is submitted the pop up will disappear.

You can follow the same steps to share on your Twitter page too. However Twitter posts are very limited and you can only write a few words in them.

Happy sharing,
Winston
