I think the goal is to consolidate the online presence; it's already a scattered mess that isn't useful as a political tool. Regionally, it helps communication, but not between regions or for areas where a few supporters want ideas to use in their area.
The only exception I can see is a site targeted at college and high school aged students. We need them and they will benefit the most from FairTax. You look pretty young - talk to Jim about a feeder-site for the under 25 crowd that uses their lingo. It'd probably be offensive to most of the folks here! I just don't like words like pimp, whore, rape and the usual expletives being thrown around so much. However, their presence at a site geared for them would be an additional tool in our arsenal.
Perhaps the facebook sites listed cover this. I don't know. I only use face book to track my kids :)
My wife has found facebook to be a very good lead capture for the fairtax and for your individual fairtax groups.
Its a great way to find supporters and then to narrow it down to volunteers and then even further narrowing down to finding leaders. the key is sending a personalized note to each and every person welcoming them to the group soon after they join. follow that up, soon thereafter with a personalized short questionaire about whether they are willing to volunteer, asking specifically what tasks they are willing to do. Very important to give them a list of activities to choose from. Keep a database on their responses. From, those that respond you will possibly find some leaders from that group. It is easy to get behind, so try to stay on top of it a few times a day. Hope this helps.
Facebook does draw the younger crowd.
As I've said to Jim I make it a daily routine to check the FT groups and make sure all the discussions are current and questions or statements answered/respondeded to.
Nothing worse than a group of 2,000+ on Facebook that is out of date and not active :)
