    Talking Facebook

    I don't see Tom Bihn on Facebook. I encourage TB to make a page so people can be fans on Facebook. Free advertising in a sense.

Accessories: Bunches and bunches.

    I've been checking, like, EVERY WEEK to see if one's been made, to no avail. Of course, the Facebook fan page setup leaves much to be desired....

    I'm working on setting it up, but it's not public just yet. I'll be relying on you two Facebook experts to help me figure out what we should add to it.

    Smile http://en.wikipedia.org/

    Given Tom Bihn's bag design expertise, perhaps an entry on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page is in order also, can't hurt!

    The first three we're working on, but our blog will always be in one place - here. Maybe small updates on Facebook.

    yes, it is possible to add rss feeds to your facebook page by using one of the many rss feed applications available on facebook.

    useful links:

    RSS Facebook Applications

    Facebook Application Directory

    as an example, here is the SimplyRSS Facebook Application

    hmm - maybe not a good example. having trouble with it. also, check the reviews before choosing an RSS application. i'm going to try a few of these and see if i can identify what works well.

    this example looks promising - RSS-Connect
