Whether you like it or not, that social media page has brought a lot of traffic towards this site than ever before


Its helping meet attendance, not the site. The most active new members on here that are doing build threads and asking questions are not on Facebook. No one is making introduction threads saying they found this site through Facebook. Like I said before , social media should be used as a tool to promote. The first thing it says on the DSMtuners Facebook is "DSMers - please stop by and create a DSM Profile (or update your existing profile) and use it to document your DSM build: " They use there's to promote there site.


maybe you should join the fb page and evaluate it. We do have a pinned post redirecting people here. To make a new account and introduce themselves here

I know what's on there, I am saying its working great for meet attendance, not so much for site traffic. The Monday meet thread is full of complaints that stuff is not being shared here and only on Facebook , and IG. There are also Facebook post that sum up the whole thing, laziness its easier for people to post to Facebook since people are just wasting there time on there all day anyway. Its too much trouble go login to another site. Lol, I get paid to block people from accessing Facebook, it kills productivity at businesses. But what the hell, you can post about dsms , comment on a stupid picture of your friends dog, I even heard on Facebook last night that Charles Manson was paroled :roll:

The people running the FB page have no intention of stealing our name or changing our image. Jaimer, Raul, and Gabe (Talon) have been going to our meets since long before the FB page and they definitely represent a portion of the club. The FB page directs people to LADSM.com very visibly. Whether or not that generates traffic here, I don't know, but I'm personally really glad to see renewed interest in our club and at our Monday meets. I don't see any reason for a power struggle. What we *should* do, if we care about the LADSM name or reputation, is start showing up to meets, talk to people, and tell them to register on the forums. I agree that any meets, BBQs, caravans, or other club business should be discussed here and that decisions should be made by senior members, but I see nothing wrong with people taking interest in being a part of our club.

Like I said good for attendance, not for site traffic maybe that can be fixed. I think there should be a presence on social media but if info is posted there regarding meets etc...it should be posted here too, it should be used to promote and supliment the site.

I absolutely agree. Jaimer feels terrible about the caravan post. I've talked with him and he's all about discussing with us how he can best drive traffic here and promote the forum. He and Raul agree that it's best when people bring the discussion here, especially in regards to tech. It's going to be *really* hard to drive people away from FB when it comes to general chatter and posting pics, as social media has enveloped every aspect of most people's lives.

More thoughts on this later.

There are some issues being brought up about LADSM.com and the Ladsm fb page. I am suggesting we/us/all discuss the problem in person at the next upcoming Monday meet...we need to squash this problem before it becomes way out of hand and start talking about each others mother...

i say leave the fb group as is. it brings about big turnouts for the monday meets.
social media groups will come and go, but ladsm.com has lasted, and i hope it keeps standing for more years to come. i have made good friends because of this site, and dont intend on ruining the reputation it built over the years, but it seems like more people are interested in social media than the forum. that's fine with me. the way i see it, those who are more into the social media arent the ones who are tech oriented anyways and will more than likely not have any useful insight to provide on this site. they'll just be spamming here with their nonsense and pics they take everyday of their barely running cars.
those of us who are more into the performance aspect of dsms will be the ones sticking around. the social media fans will fade, just like the social media will. myspace for example.
as far as using ladsm for the fb group page, i dont see anything wrong with it. the instagram page, well, let them spam those sites with pics of their pos cars. and if people have a problem with members using social media to promote this page and the biweekly monday meet, then maybe you should do some promoting on your own. it wasnt until the fb page that the meets started getting big turnouts again, and members are whining about it? is their no more love for dsms except for your own? only the "OG" dsmers can say who can show up to the meets and who can promote the site? if that's the case, ladsm would still be pretty much inactive because there's nobody out there promoting the site and trying to get dsmers to show up to the meets.

Apparently their is a 2nd ladsm fb page already set up with a much of non regular ladsm members coming to our spot....funny how those guys took our ladsm name and puck our meet time but nothing was said one the forum just until right now by synthetic.... the way ladsm.Com runs is thru this forum, not fb, IG or any social media pages. If other dsms want to come out of the group or from or form other areas that's fine. By we discuss out meets time and location and get voted on here....majority rules.
Also WE decide if we want others dsm clubs to come to our house (Monday meet spot) we decide on this forum if we want to combine caravans wit nland ie or sgvdsm. It seems all this is already "set up" the improper way and what makes me more up set is these dsm members are claiming ladsm....yet I have only seen then around for a couple months at OUR meets. For the record no LADSM official meets or caravan has been made offical. It is in the works. It is LADSM offical once it is voted by us on this forum not on social media and then will be put as a sticky by mod or admin

I have no problem with other dsms at our meets, I don't care what crew they claim as long as it is in good fun. What i care a out is our name. Everyone seems to be using that name as is comes close to MOD....is it because LADSM has a reverse spot at mod?? Hmmm...could have sworn last year sgvdsm wait for ladsm to go in first. I got no personal issue with anyone reading this. But using our ladsm on social media needs to stop. What's that point of having 25 guys show up at meet but I only see 12 regular members post on the board...somethinges isn't right about that.

+1 i guess ill see you guys at the next meet to further discuss this.

Post Re: LADSM and Facebook
Finally something shook this place up again it was about time. Everyone makes valid points toward this issue. There would be times that it would only be 3 of us at meets and that's discouraging to see. Its understandable that people have lives and it makes it hard to attend but when they are free and could make it and then try to say that this is wrong whats happening they are too blame for what is happening. I'll be the first to admit I'm guilty of this I have Monday's free but I have to be at work at 6am. I can show up for an hour and interact wit everyone but I don't. Like I said earlier it was discouraging to come to a meet and only have 1 or 2 more guys show up. OG members need to try and make an effort to make their presence be known. Social media should be used as tool to direct people to the forum. A lot was already said that I had in mind. We all need to try and make the effort and keep making this club what it was what it can be and what it should be the biggest DSM club in L.A Well that's my opinion on the topic.
