I personally avoid facebook at all costs but you guys do what you want
Don't get me wrong I'm not the biggest fan but i was thinking about it more for being able to get instant rules clarifications and it may be a reasonable way to promote the forum. However it can also detract from the forum use which isn't what we want.
oooh, a promo team on facebook....we need to have a poll on this: - Who should appear with a dwarf helmet? - Who should appear in chainmail bikini? - Who can play warhammer on the weirdest spot (Canadian hills, Vietnamese rice fields) -...

An EEFL Facebook group would be decidedly for Marienbergers and High Elven Silver Tower dwellers. Pffffft Floofy shirts and shiny point helmets and Panda emojis would rule the day o'er yonder in the new Empire Province of Zuckerberg.
I am actually pretty active on Facebook (is visiting once a day active?) I think putting EEFL on Facebook would somewhat trivialize it. I dunno, maybe I'd make new friends and maybe it would make sharing pics and images easier. I do not feel strongly either way (except to get a mocking dig on the High Elves.... which I already did). I would vote a solid NO on Twitter, sorry. All that said, if you all went there, I would follow cause I just like the Old World and square bases ad ranks and files.
I think different technologies have their pros and cons.
Forums are great for long term data sharing (project logs, rules resources) bad for attracting anyone but the most committed - you have to make a conscious decision to come to this forum and if you don't know about it you will never find it.
Twitter is good for quickly sharing news through disemminated networks of contacts but not for any long term iterative projects or discussion. Downside is you need connections to have the message spread. (by the way please follow me @khornelord and retweet Da Boyz GT stuff please!)
Facebook is great for making connections with other gamers and is so ubiquitously used that someone doesn't have to be committed to the topic to be able to have it show up in their feed. It's biggest strength is it's so commonly used most people use it. Not good for long term information.
Instagram and pinterest I don't use much but I think mostly like twitter but focused on pictures. Snapchat same but video.
Interestingly I find that people don't respond as well to email for gaming coordination as I would expect. Will knows my hair is going a bit gray trying to coordinate our Blood Bowl league. I find for some people texts and FB messages get their attention more.
Having managed/modded The Daemonic Legion and Herdstone forums for years I'll say that forum traffic was going down greatly even before AoS. The Blood Bowl FB groups get 100's of times more posts per day then the BB forums by and large. If you are trying to get younger gamers interested in 8th a different format might be better.
