So I was a little disappointed today to see that #GolfWRX only has 30 photos on Instagram. With as many members as we have (145,000+) and as large and mainstream as Instagram is, I was hoping that number would be higher. That said, make sure to tag your golf related photos #GolfWRX be it on course shots, new clubs, anything golf!

Also, shameless self promotion of my Instagram account ---> http://instagram.com/bjackson2718

I would say this is mainly do to the fact that it is starting to become "cooler" to NOT have these types of accounts anymore. And by that I mean to be "off the grid" so to speak. I would say about 50% of the people I stay in contact with have cancelled facebook, instagram, twitter, etc.

Could just be me, or my location, but is anyone else seeing this trend??

Where in Nor Cal are you? I'm a Silicon Valley native so I think it would be anything but 'hip' to not be connected on these networks. Sure I know people who have deactivated their facebook accounts, but staying connected via these tools IMO is very necessary in order to stay up-to-date with current trends. I'm no crazy when it comes to frequent posting, but I definitely understand the value of being plugged in.

I agree with you on that.

I live in Sonoma County and up this way the new trends are things like cycling, becoming vegetarian, vitality programs, etc... living a cleaner, more healthy lifestyle and losing all the electronic gadgets you don't need. Basically people are looking at the facebooks, video games and twitters as a reason for things like child obesity and lazyness. I am not saying I agree or disagree, I have some of those things and I still live a very active healthy lifestyle. I'm just saying it is happening around here, look into the town of Sebastopol which isn't too far from here, they have been fighting the to keep free wi-fi OUT OF THE TOWN!

Here's going to my stalker comment... So somehow I backed into your intsa pics earlier this week.  Somehow your pic of either the Audi or Lamborghini hit my news feed (someone I follow must have liked it?).  Some sick cars on your account.  I'm @bmwaite.

I never thought about tagging #golfwrx.  It's a really great idea, and it should be a new rule for anyone who wins a contest to go somewhere, if they use social media they should use the tag.

My next golf pic will have the tag.  Look out for @tympugh

I don't understand the stupidity of promoting another site when you can just have people come to Golfwrx.com instead.  If I want to talk about golf, the last place I'm going to go is Facebook or Twitter.

Equally idiotic is putting hashtags on this website.  If I'm logged onto WRX, why do you want me to click over to some other douchey site like Twitter?

All GolfWRX all the time.  Quit trying to diversify and bring people here instead of the other way around.

I was just searching for Golfwrx pics on instagram the other day and thought the same thing.  Then I realized I never post any golf pics and therefore I am part of the problem.  Will have to start taking and tagging them from now on.  I'm @RedDevilWheezy on there.

I was debating going out to the range today, so I checked the Weather Channel.  Thankfully, they didn't waste my bandwidth asking me to like them on Facebook or follow them on Twitter.  I waded through their ads, got the info I wanted, and went on with my day.

Until you figure out that even in this simple world you envision, someone has to pay the bills for all the wonderful weather information you enjoy using. As I remember, at the commercial beginnings of the internet, there were a number of great ideas that failed because they couldn't find a way to pay the bills. There were a huge number of people who lost a boat-load of money on these great ideas. They failed to listen to people like Warren Buffett who said (and I paraphrase) never invest in anything whose founders can't clearly explain how they intend to add positive numbers their income statements' bottom line. Thankfully some of the folks behind the internet sites I frequent (especially GolfWRX) figured out a way to finance themselves. I'll gladly wade through the ads, appeals to "like", etc. to enjoy what I have here on GolfWRX and for that matter, Weather.com.

I think you are looking at this backwards. Say I put pictures from my TMAG trip, or others put pictures that pertain to golf on their Twitter or Instagram, and tag them with #GolfWRX, you are networking and advertising for this site faster than you can any other way. The amount of followers each person has, it is free advertising for GolfWRX and naturally directs itself at others with like interests. In no way is it telling people to go to Twitter or Instagram rather than GolfWRX.

I think you are looking at this backwards. Say I put pictures from my TMAG trip, or others put pictures that pertain to golf on their Twitter or Instagram, and tag them with #GolfWRX, you are networking and advertising for this site faster than you can any other way. The amount of followers each person has, it is free advertising for GolfWRX and naturally directs itself at others with like interests. In no way is it telling people to go to Twitter or Instagram rather than GolfWRX.
Disagree.  Check ProfSmitty's sig above.  His "follow WRX on Twitter" sig specifically redirects you AWAY from GolfWRX and towards Twitter.

It's one thing if your enterprise is a commercial or tangible item.  But when your business is a website and your concept of marketing is to take your members AWAY from your site to another site, you need to rethink your strategy.  Everything should funnel you deeper into the WRX forums, not away from it.  It's why Walmart doesn't ask you to follow their ads at Target.com.  The place to talk about golf should be GolfWRX, not Twitter.  Sending people to another site is just stupid.

Do you understand how Twitter works? He is not saying, go to Twitter instead of our site. In no way is he saying "pick Twitter over GolfWRX."

I am on Twitter. Do you know how why I sometimes come to GolfWRX? Because I follow them and they tweet links to some of their hot stories, a lot of which I wouldn't see because I am at work or on the go. Sometimes, I will retweet that link and my followers can see GolfWRX.com. It is putting the GolfWRX name out there in different avenues. Twitter and GolfWRX are not Walmart and Target. #Stupid-IER

Twitter has very easy to use app. It is social media and news nowadays. GolfWRX mobile is not as user-friendly.

When I am on my computer, I frequent GolfWRX more than any other site. It is not that way with mobile. GolfWRX putting out a tweet about some of the more popular stories for the day keeps me easily up-to-date when I am on the go. Much easier than going forum to forum or View New Content on my slow-loading phone. When I do get to a computer, sometimes days later, me being on Twitter does not take away from time I am on GolfWRX. I come to GolfWRX to talk about golf, also. This is not GolfWRX telling people to go to Hackers Paradise or something like that. There is a reason almost every business uses Facebook and Twitter. It is marketing. You think they'd be doing it if it was taking away from their site value? They aren't telling people to talk about it on Twitter and take their discussion away from here. They are using it is a way to reach others and direct them here.

I suspect that it is difficult for some folks understand that GolfWRX will do whatever we can to help our members find us, to share their ideas, connect with each other, and find information about golf. If this site was complete consumed about self-promotion, I guess some of the things it does might not make sense. But if GolfWRX and its ownership was really interested in something more than adding to its Owner's Equity, much of what they do would make perfect sense. Just sayin'!
