The Facebook page for Earth the Operators Manual (ETOM) allows readers to sign-up for email updates. Let's add this feature to our Facebook page.

PS- There are more buttons on ETOM's Facebook page that we may want to also use on our Facebook page.

I like the idea, but we'd have to be careful on how frequentl we update the page.  Since we've added moderation, I've noticed an uptick in the number of posts we make to the page, which is excellent but might not jive well with an email listing.  I wouldn't want to get 10 emails a day from Facebook for instance.

Actually, on that note, whatever happened to emails from SkS?  I can't remember what conversation we had about that, it's apparently been a while.

Alex, my fuzzy memory says we were up against a daily server limit.

My thought was to use the Facebook button for people to sign-up for the daily SkS email, not for an email about each article posted on Facebook.

I signed-up for the EOTM email alert and have received only a confirmation email to date. I do not believe I will receive an email everytime something new is posted on the EOTM Facebook page.

Actully, everytime something new is posted on the EOTM Facebook page, it also is posted on my personal Facebook page. I do not believe that i am getting any emails from EOTM.
