Facebook's Tiki page consists of a mere 4 paragraphs and 1 photo.
http://www.facebook.com/pages/Tiki/107889835899240?sk=wall

Can anyone contact the owner with a request to improve the page, or give it up?

Not sure how to contact the owner of the page (without "liking" it first)- how about one of us starting a new FB Tiki page? That would be nice to have.

It looks like it's one of the "community" pages that Facebook created. If you had a page that didn't fit their definition of what a page should be (according to FB) they converted it to a new type of page which is really nothing but a Wiki definition and no way to add to it.

There is also a Tiki Central page on facebook. Not much information on it either but if you want to know about Tiki Central then you should go to Tiki Central and you are already there. (did you follow that?)

As I said before: In my opinion, sites like Facebook are already syphoning enough of people's attention and posts AWAY from Tiki Central. Everyone is even more into their own little world now. I have had many invitations to join other internet Tiki groups, and I never did: Tiki Central is enough, why dilute the focus? I don't have a blog, and no website to speak of, this is were I dropped my anchor.

I think the name says it all, Tiki Central, in other words, the Center of the Tiki Universe. Why go anywhere else for more than just a visit?

BigBro,

It seems to me that you've done more than just drop your anchor in this safe harbor. Rather more like you've stripped your vessel of everything you'd need and burned it to the waterline (at least for now). I, for one, appreciate it.

Not even a link to TikiCentral.

Well thank you, B.B., I appreciate that.

Chris, you are right, ALL internet roads should lead to Tiki Central, the Wikipedia entry needs a TC link too.
Individual posts seem to have TC links, but I still think it detours traffic from here. Facebook is just so "convenient".
Then again, it might lead novices to TC

Progress has been made, as now there is a FB TikiCentral page, with an appropriate reference to this board.

However, the FB Tiki page now refers to a hamburger stand in England.

How odd: The Tiki Facebook page now references a Jamaican fashion line.

There are a few tiki groups, pages and others on Facebook.

The facebook group that is just called TIKI is this

Tiki Tatoo, Italy

The Tiki Central page is still there but not much content.

Facebook: TikiCentral

At least more than 200 people like it.

Got to be honest - everyone I know is on Facebook, except of course for some of my new and socially remote, but culturally correct, friends on Tiki Central

Recommend that someone take an interest and grow the Tiki Central fb page, with strong pointers back to this forum.

Kids today are familiar with multiple networking sites, and they find time to support all their networked friends.... its not a case of the forum OR Facebook, rather both sites need to be maintained.

"My father-in-law came over for Christmas and constantly complained that Rock and Roll destroyed the world... that Tiki is just some Hollywood bullshit...and that true culture can only be sourced from ancient Rome."

So funny to read threads about fb destroying the world... I feel like I've joined another family!!

Now "Tiki" is either a spa or an undescribed local business in Mississippi.
