    Ummm... No thanks.
    FB doesn't like my name (since I don't have government "proof") and shut it down and I REFUSE to do another page. I despise FB!
    Everybody else can have at it.
    Good Luck & Enjoy.

    For site-only giveaways that are short term (24 hours or less) we will usually have about 1/10 or even 1/20 the views/entries that we will get for a FB giveaway in the same period. With that stat in mind, you can likely understand why homeschool vendors who are purchasing giveaway promotions from us are far more interested in a venue with more exposure and interaction. We're definitely sorry for those who choose not to use the social network, that you can't be involved in those, but for us it's a business decision that we have to make to keep the SHS community free for our members.

    Topsy,

    I think you're awesome and I love this site, but it took me several months of frustration to finally (hopefully) delete, not just deactivate, my FaceBook account, after a few incidents involving privacy/potential stalking/possibly threatening messages, so I'm not going back there. I miss some things not being on FB, but overall, I'm happy I'm no longer there.

    Yes, I can certainly understand that, so don't stop doing those. I just choose not to participate on FB.

    Hmmm. I understand going where the money is.
    What about a fb notice pointing to the site? This is where SHS wants people to be, isnt it?

    I dont mean to be complaining, Im very fond of the site. Just wish faceborg wasnt an assumed part of it.

    Topsy,

    I tried to post a thread, but it said that there would be a delay. The link above for the giveaway doesn't work.
