PCGS posts on Facebook and the Forums

ZoinsZoins Posts: 20,577 ✭✭✭✭✭

I was just going over their Facebook feed and realized that they post a ton of great coins there.

I was wondering if anyone follows them there and what do we think if @PCGS_SocialMedia posted more of those great coins here?

They get some feedback there but mostly of the short thumbs up variety whereas here there tends to be more discussion.

    I follow them on Instagram which is where I think the same images go. Always some mouth watering goodies to look at.

    If people don't want to be on Facebook, or their image site Instagram, is that a reason for PCGS Social to post the same beautiful coins on this forum?

    The people from the small place that I come from have been blown to the far corners of the World (limited economic opportunities where I come from unless you farm). Sometimes I don't much like Zucky, but I would have completely lost track of some people (perhaps even some family members) without FB.

    Just because you are paranoid doesn't mean that they are not out to get you.

    I may check out PCGS on FB.

    I don't have Facebook but the wife does. She keeps herself and me updated on what's going on.

    I don't use facebook. I don't really care if people like cheese, or to see a picture of them in front of a Hard Rock Cafe in who gives a crap.
    But it is a great way to find out the names and faces of people's kids, or to know when they won't be home when they are at Disneyland.

    I follow them on Instagram and they have posted a few of my tokens. NGC as well.

    Your FB experience will depend on HOW you "sign up" the very first time.
    It's quite easy to have several accounts if you don't spill all the beans. B)

    The PCGS Instagram account is definitely worth following if you have an account. I use Facebook as a source for low quality memes and other garbage-tier purposes, so I don’t follow PCGS on that platform. And don’t get me started on Twitter.

    Do either TPG credit or mention you when your tokens are posted?

    I have a FB page... have had for since the beginning. Great way to keep in touch with the far flung friends, family and acquaintances I have made over the years. Had someone contact me from my time in Portugal (forty plus years ago)...It can be time consuming if you allow it..., so I keep that aspect under control... so much more to life than the internet....though it is a marvelous addition to modern life. Cheers, RickO

    I can remember when there was no internet. Seems like things weren't as fast paced then or I'm getting older! :p

    I couldn’t agree with you more! In many ways it helped the coin hobby but
    created much more anxiety

    Facebook ?

  • HemisphericalHemispherical Posts: 9,297 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Do not have accounts.

    Go there to look at pics and any announcements (quarterly special gets updated before website) every once in awhile.

  • We cross post an article here nearly every day now, and many times there's not a ton of engagement. We'll keep trying.

    Which would be a good reason for @PCGS_SocialMedia to post more here :)

    I post one super cool major error coin with exceptional eye appeal every single day on Instagram.

    Should I post those coins here daily?

    I know many here would love to see them but do know if that is too much.

    Same here, about three years ago. I was fed up with the politics and drama, filth, etc. :(

  • Thank you for the great feedback! @Zoins we have a few coins we're doing previews of for FUN that we can definitely post here on the forum this week. @coinsarefun if you ever want us to tag you, we can always do that. That goes for anyone really, we love getting user submissions for content! When we normally gather the images, we really only have the cert verification info, so unless otherwise noted we don't know who the pieces belong to.

    I hate facebook, never will visit and will never sign up. They are simply spying on you and selling your information to make money.
    Flame away if you wish, but I have better things to do in my life.

    My sentiments exactly!

    When in doubt, don't.

    I would post what you think is reasonable. :+1:

    People here aren’t shy when they think something is too much :D

    Facebook is all about how you use it. Great way to keep up with family and friends and there are some good coin groups, albeit not as advanced as this.
