Facebook


It was a great thing. You pushed a button and instantly you belonged to a group and instantly you could set your preferences to get all the messages from this very group.

Many Floorballgroups realized this and they sat up different special pages for their own Floorball activity. It was a smashing easy way to keep basic "club-activities" going.
And a handful of groups in America figured this out, as well as we did we and tossed up our own Facebook page too. Then in Europe we guess groups like these are probably in the hundreds if not way many more...

Then facebook wanted to make money. They changed their algorithm so instead of reaching many in your group - the grapewine say that today you reach 10% of your friends - if you do not pay to promote your posts..? We do not know but we can with certainty say that our stream on facebook does not look like it used to.

If this is true well, it is kind of obvious that Facebook is perhaps not a very good tool to use to keep a Floorball club going...so..

Do you have any better suggestions?

Caution

Research suggest that eye-injuries are more common in Floorball as compared to Tennis, but less common as compared to Squash (similar to Racquetball).
To minimize this risk of injury Floorballcentral recommend: Use certified protective eye-wear (mandated in many European areas for the youth). Do not lay down on the court. Follow the rules strict on stick height.

Also if you get addicted to this sport - do not blame us!
