Newshour’s on Facebook…

facebook_logo170_170x49It’s been up and running for just a week, but we’re really excited with the response so far, well over 500 members and growing fast. (wites Dan Isaacs, on the bike).dan on a bike

And the way some of the conversations have kicked off has been amazing.

Just have a look at the debate about the Kenyan government’s plans to conduct a national ‘gay census.’

lyse We might not have reached the scale of the World Have Your Say blog, but we’re enjoying getting to know our listeners and hear what they have to say.

You want more pictures of our presenters, more lively discussion and a better idea of what’s coming up in the programme.

We’ll try to provide all that, but really the facebook group is for our listeners to talk to each other without us getting involved.owen

With your help, it’ll go from strength to strength. You’ll find us by typing BBC World Service Newshour into the facebook search engine. Or just cut and paste this  – http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=163459127696&ref=ts  into your browser. Come and join the conversation. Dan

P.s : WHYS on Facebook here.

    I might give it a try sometime but honestly I am okay here unless I wana stole a ride on Dan’s Enfielf machine with all manuals written in Patel’s and Gujarat. Don’t try me on that, I would! Lel me see. facebook is some new chemistry from them BBC hah! I am used to the crowd aroun here. Everyone is here; grandies too and who else? Oh and Junior and Steve Wonder an all dose odder tried an good broddrs an sisters too. In facebook I might find myself on main street poking at total strangers unused to ma music.

    ‘I gota a right to hang around
    I gota a right to sing the blues now and then’.

    Ho! Hooo! I am not dat good at croaking de jazz music as much as I want but de crowed around here likes it. In dis place I was never run outa lil loose change. Yesssir!

      No, Joe Polly; It doesn’t mean that World Service and Facebook are on
      the way to a merger….
