Here is my thought and something I am hoping to do.

I am hoping to play SFB by Facebook. The reason why is that in the friends list, there are usually lots of people. they see what you are doing and they get exposure to the game. If they want to stay my friend, they get to learn about it. If they don't like it, they can sacrifice the Facebook friendship for a whopper at Burger King. But that being said, for instance I am approaching almost 400 people worldwide in my Facebook friends list and these are usually people who do share some common interests with me. So to me those who participate in Facebook with me are exposed to the game, those who participate with you are exposed to the game, just playing it exposes the game, puts the thought in people's head, "oh this might be cool" and all of the sudden all of these people know about the game. SVC and ADB didn't have to spend a cent on advertising because every time you do something it gets updated. It's almost a captive audience with it unless that stupid sandwich is looking mighty good about now.

Not a bad idea.

Go to Facebook and type in Star Fleet Battles and see what comes up in the search bar.

Yes and I'm on both of those groups. There are people there who have contributed a lot to the advancement of the game too.

I think it's a great idea. Any way you can get free advertising for ADB will help, and in this case it's with minimal effort. Well done.

I like to put an ADB banner -well, actually, FC - on each page of my website; you can visit it below if you feel the urge. I really don't know if it helps, and the banners are not placed particularly prominently because I don't want to detract from the main theme of the site - but I do think that every little helps.

Anything we can do to help promote ADB means more great products, potentially more opponents, and you even get SVC's thanks too.

What more could we ask Smile

PS No I don't work for ADB Wink

I want to put up an SFB fan page for SFB on Facebook. It has groups, but not a fan page. The fan page I think will also help draw attention to the game. Now with Federation Commander being the new game in town, my belief is that we need to remember it's roots and not forget SFB too. This again is public exposure, getting it out in the open and I'm also hoping that with the new movie, it will inadvertantly give it a little kick too. I can get this fan page up with information all pointing to ADB, give information on the products and before you know it, it gains a higher search engine placement, making it easier to be found. I could get this up in 10 minutes, Free to ADB because I love the game. All of a sudden it's available to everyone on Facebook, whether they play the game or not they can see it and be a fan or not. That's the beauty of it. Nothing on it points to anyone other than ADB/SVC so there is no "agendas" anywhere. With SVC's permission I only ask to give it a whirl, it certainly won't hurt anything. Because it's free nothing is lost if it doesn't do well and plenty is to gain if it does. All it can do is generate sales and interest. I have this thing ready to go, all I have to do is hit publish and boom! just like rolling a pair of snake eyes narrow salvoed at a range of three on overloaded photons. Or not, we'll see!

Especially if it has links from other sites. PM me when it's done and I'll link to it from my websites.
