Its not a Facebook world! Facebook is a fad that will pass by 2012. Boonex is the FB rival. BX is the future of whom all will look back at Facebook in contempt. BX does not need facebook for traffic. My opinion (the above mentions were facts) is that FB/Twitter Plugins/Modules assist in familiarity and simplicity of transitioning a user to a new and more sophisticated platform. (ie grandmothers are now tweeting and updating FB applications from their iphones facebook has made social networking a see more common part of everyday life, so now we are thankful for this, but don't surrender what you and what others who have believed in your dream have built, because it in now an evolving reality, capable of supporting the world for the next 10 years and beyond!
lets be totaly honest here.... Boonex doesnt need facebook trafic? possibly.... BUT... my site needs facebook traffic, as does yours, as does everyones who has invested all their time and money to make a business. Because at the end of the day, this is business!

Its about advetising$ its about subscription$ its about people buying credits for$ Those prople WILL be on facebook. In order to get those $ you have to pull them away, stripp them off the giant one by one. I dont know about you guys, see more I do enjoy my site and what I do, but at the end of the day there is a bottom line... and its the $. Thats why I am in it, and thats why I am going to get those members to, not to jump ship, but to spend enough time in my boat to make a good profit.

I have said it before, and I will say it again, facebook are handing it to us on a plate. Just find ways to take it. Anyone made a facebook application, game or utillity that links to their site and brings traffic that way? Cos i sure as hell am going to.

Not a "to be ignored" platform, that's for sure, but as you suggest, the best approach is to use it, not get used by it.
