Ah, the phoenix down. An RPG player's favorite item to have in handy during boss fights. If you're not familiar with the term, a "Phoenix Down" revives a fallen character/ally/whatever. So for our project in SMO, it was a goal of mine to help revive the MAGD page on Facebook and give it some new life. And I think I did a pretty nice job.
First off, I shared numerous stories on the page's wall. From gaming news to articles on Mashable, I would immediately throw the link on MAGD's wall for other people to see if I thought it was interesting, as well as putting it on my own status. I also typed some well-thought out responses to the various stories the MAGD admins shared on their status, and gave as much feedback as I could. Another contribution was simply suggesting the page to friends. I got about 10 people out of my friends list that were interested in MAGD to "like" the page, boosting page awareness. Finally, I helped establish some user-created content by submitting a simple photo I created in Photoshop using the progression of Mario combined with the MAGD logo. It wasn't meant to be anything spectacular, but I believe that any user-created content really helps to boost activity.
There were also a few things I was dissapointed with during the beginning of this project. I don't think we did a great job promoting our event, "Friday game days", as even I was confused as to what, where, and when the event even was. To fix this, I think we can all promote it better as well as setting up a more informative event page. Secondly, there wasn't too much of a group effort. I noticed that there was little communication amongst ourselves which may have held us back. Simple solution: more communication.
Other than that, I think we did a great job in spreading the word and getting more activity on the page. We had a few flaws in our group work but overall, this is a great start to getting more people involved with MAGD!
