Yes, I know…It seems we are late to the Facebook “fan” game. For the loyal readers you will recall that we had a page several months back that was used as a job board. This idea seemed brilliant at the time but after realizing it was taking a ton of resources and we were getting very little participation we canned it. So now we are back with a regular fan page that will keep you up to date on what is going on with the community.

Why start one now? That is a very good question Brant. Yesterday, out of the blue, the official Adobe Photoshop fan page featured our recent post on 650+ Free Photoshop Patterns on their wall. After seeing an enormous surge in traffic and viewing the 900 “likes” and nearly 150 comments I started to wonder why we are not promoting on Facebook. After all, we promote like crazy on the pages of Google, Twitter, RSS, and Smashing Network. So here we are starting a traditional fan page.

    Some users outside of the USA might have to go to their Country’s URL for Facebook to login. Sorry for the confusion.

    Just “liked” the page guys. Keep up the good work!

    P.S. – strange thing. When I clicked the link you provided in the article, it kept taking me to the EDIT page for my own Fan Page. Very weird! The link looks like it has the “manage” info in the url?

    It might have been because I was logged in? Even when I logged in out and tried to use that link, when I finally did log in to actually “like” the page, it still took me to my own Edit Page area. Strange.

    Finally, I switched to another browser (firefox, originally I was using Safari on the Mac) , grabbed the link and was able to Like the page. Possibly anyone with their own fan page might have this issue?

    Oh well, I eventually got to it. Again, thanks for all the hard work!

    You need to look at the url again, it keeps taking me to my own page!!

    When I search for you in the search box, it only comes up with the job page.

    I’m not sure what you mean. In posts about design/website how stay SEO? Do you mean, how do you try to achieve good organic rankings while having a nicely designed site?
