Just saw this on Philadelphia Daily News FB page:

Philadelphia Daily News
Okay, folks, here's the deal when it comes to posting on our wall about online poker: Ryan Byrne just posted to our wall on the subject. Any other posts must be attached to his as a comment. Further wall posts will be deleted. We're glad to hear what people have to say but we won't have you spamming our wall. You've been warned.

I responded. There are some comments that do not help us. We need to own this comment area, as he has specifically brought it up as a topic.

This is something we'll want to do for all the Facebook posting we do, IMO.

For politicians, let's try to keep it to one post visible on the wall at all times -- that post preferably made by a constituent who identifies himself/herself as one -- with the rest of us liking and commenting to that post. This will allow us to make our case without generating negative reactions from the owners of the pages.

Thanks!

Awesome work so far on the Investor's Business Daily page: http://www.facebook.com/permalink.ph...00000102517352

They are definitely paying attention, and I hope they do a story.

Nice work, boys. I've not been much of a reader of Investor's Business Daily, but I just may have to become one.

I just posted a thread in the Facebook discussion forum of The Economist. Please drop in and share your thoughts. Remember that many of the people who read that board are not poker players and are probably of the mindset that playing online poker is illegal.

I think that you have to "Like" The Economist first:

May I please get some "likes" on these three? Only one was open posting, so the other two are comments in response to their latest postings.

Although the legislation they introduced is just for taxes, without it, the Barton (or other) bill will not pass so we need to show them some love. Thanks.

Re: Fight for Poker Rights: Thursday, June 23rd (see post #1 for today's plan)

Several media have responded to Facebook posts requesting coverage of Black Friday. Let's upvote and affirmatively reply by commenting to these posts (I recommend not posting to these sites' main walls...some here have been banned from some walls):
* Thanks LastLife for putting this list together
Recurring actions:

Let's continue to own a lot of Facebook pages (senators, Congressmen, Congressional committees, etc.). Rep. Barton has cited our Facebook posts, so we know it works.

Quote:

  • The House Financial Services Committee's Facebook page is here.
  • Let's get some posts on the House Committee on Energy and Commerce page (here)
  • The Dept. of Justice's page is here.
  • Senators' FB pages: Senator Facebook Listing. For this, let's try to keep it to a couple of posts visible on the wall at all times -- that post preferably made by a constituent who identifies himself/herself as one -- with the rest of us liking and commenting on that post. This will allow us to make our case without generating negative reactions from the owners of the pages.
  • We need lots of "liking" of pro-poker comments.
Let's also all send the PPA pre-written letters to our lawmakers. These will be updated when Rep. Barton's poker bill is introduced to the House (in other words, soon), so let's all get the current letters out before that. Once done, please reply ITT with "done", "sent", etc. to encourage others. Thanks!

Take Action Now and Contact your Lawmaker


Click Buttons to Send Letters in less than 60 seconds:






Finally, let's recruit others. Our personal recommendations of this effort will go far. The daily action plan takes very little time and there's no denying it's way +EV for the time invested. Once done, please post here that you made the request, along with posting your personal commitment to participate in the action plan. I created a short URL for this thread that should help with sharing: http://******/takeaction

Thanks!

I've been voting that I don't like all the non-poker questions too. I don't think it can hurt.

Got a reply. He refers to his poker "obsession." Will be following up.

Just started a discussion thread on the Washinton Post Facebook website.

http://www.facebook.com/washingtonpost

Go to the link and click on the "Like" button and then click on Discussion on the left side of the page.

The name of the thread is "Black Friday", A dark day for online poker. Please go there and post your thoughts.

Hopefully they'll give the story more coverage.

Re: Fight for Poker Rights: Friday, June 24th - Sunday, June 26th (see post #1 for today's plan

With the introduction of the Barton online poker bill, let's all make sure we are respectfully telling Congress that we demand our rights! As the bill drop is on a Friday, let's hit this on Facebook and follow up with emails next week.

Let's focus on members of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce (The ones with an x in front of their names means they don't have open posting. Just respond to a post already on the page.) As we have a new event with the introduction of this poker bill, let's go ahead and own these pages for the weekend.

For manageability, I subdivided them into daily groups:

Friday
Saturday
Sunday
* Thanks Sajeffe for putting this list together
