in thread Facebook 'like' button.

... I think it would be cool if we made it possible to put a badge on your Linkedin profile that "proves" not only that you actually registered at PerlMonks, but that you reached "Level $N"... an interesting twist to the XP game.

A cool idea indeed. I think it would be trivial to make a micro-rendition of just homenodes. It would include the basics (XP) and a your homenode image wedged down to icon size.

I reckon we are the only monastery ever to have a dungeon stuffed with 16,000 zombies.

    Although some of you may dislike this idea, as I said before, it is great for publicity. Some may say that PerlMonks has enough publicity (which it doesn't) but we need more. Facebook is the #1 Social Networking site in the world. Steve_BZ deserves tons of credit for this idea.

      Tons of credit for the idea?? Facebook came up with the idea! And the iframe Facebook things have been showing up all over the place. The only idea Steve_BZ had was to suggest that PM join Facebook's latest plan to ignore the privacy of its users.

      Sorry, but a well thought out, targeted advertising campaign would be a better route to take.

      Edit: LinkedIn on the other hand is a much better idea.

        I meant "Tons of credit for the idea to connect Facebook to PerlMonks". If you don't like the idea then you don't like it. I'm just giving my honest opinion.
