Squidoo Facebook Community

Updated on May 29, 2014

What Is Squidoo Facebook Community?

Squids are naturally keen users of social media and there are many of us on Facebook. One of the largest and happiest groups is Squidoo Facebook Community. Whether you're looking for help and advice on a new lens, reviving an old one or just want to chat with fellow squids, SFC is the place to be on Facebook. We have over 1,000 members and the total is rising every week.

As we approached the magic 1,000, we asked members to clebrate by making lenses and entering a competition. See more below.

Why Squidoo Facebook Community?

We welcome all lensmasters who want friendly chat and communication. We have members with huge numbers of lenses to their names, members with just one or two lenses. There's a great spread of nationalities so there's usually someone around.

A big part of our activities revolves around lenses - but we're a lot more than a link-dropping group. "Does that ad work?" "I'm not selling anything on this - can anyone see what's the ,matter?" "Here's my new lens on ...." We throw ideas around, talk them through, see the results.

We may also talk about the oddities of American English, the weather in Scotland or see what lenses some of our experts have for sale. It's up to all members - if you want to talk about it, start the conversation.

So Then ...

What do you say?

How Do I Join The SFC Group?

Simple: click on the image to the right and apply on the page. You'll be approved by an administrator and then you're free to post.

All we ask is that you're a Squidoo lensmaster (if we don't recognise your Facebook name we'll contact you to get your Squidoo username) and that you promise to obey the rules - which basically means be nice to others and don't spam.

The link again: Squidoo Facebook Community

Note: If you can't be messaged on Facebook and your timeline doesn't show who you are on Squidoo, we will have to reject your application.

Note 2: If you have no lenses or just spammy or illegal lenses, we will reject you. We don't mind newer lensmasters but we want good, honest ones. Sorry I have to say that but there's a lot of spammers out there.

Random Products - Well, nobody's going to buy off this lens!

SFCers, say hello. Prospective members, pull up a barstool and chew the fat for a while.

Take the weight off your feet

      I have to say that it was with some trepidation that I finally mooched over to Facebook to take a look at where everyone was hanging out, but I was glad I did. I appreciate the time that the Squidoo Facebook Community Group Mods take to keep this a friendly group and also the policies to have to prevent mega-link-dropping :)

      My favorite hangout, next to the Squidoo group with the themes.

      I've just requested to join the group, but I'm confused over one thing - 'if ... your timeline doesn't show who you are on Squidoo, we will have to reject your application'.

      Does this mean I have to somehow connect Squidoo to FB and if so how? Because my timeline does not feature my Squidoo name. Am I missing something here?

      Hi! I am waiting to hear back as I just joined the Facebook group. This is a great page and it looks like I will get a lot of good advice on my first Squidoo page.

      I have learned so much since I joined this group. And the members are always very generous with comments and assistance.

      I deleted my old facebook account, and when I did, left this group. But I really enjoyed the people on it, so will return with my new facebook account for sure. Great stuff!

      I get so many facebook emails and keep readjusting my settings to remove them but they keep coming. I love squidoo but I think that I am already in too many facebook communities.

      Very useful to learn about this group - I look forward to joining in the near future. I imagine it is particularly helpful for people new to the social aspects of writing online.

      It's a great group on Facebook. My mind is blank about a lens topic that I could use the number 1000 in, but have fun everyone with the challenge.

      Fun lens! I'd better think fast and come up with a lens, or I'll miss the contest! I love the SFC!

      I can see that the membership will rise to 1,000 pretty quick, so I had better come up with an idea for a lens so I can enter. It's amazing to think we have so many members already, and active ones too. Nicely done.

      Happy to be a part of the group. I would think that after this was posted, 1000 is just around the corner.

      Very nice lens, Paul. At first, I thought this was a new but quickly growing group. Then I realized it's the one I've happily been a part of for some time now. Don't always have much time to participate, but I do drop in at least briefly, at least a few days a week, to see what's been posted. I've found some really excellent lenses that way and learned quite a lot.

      closing on 1000 that's pretty nice! What's even better is the high quality of the members and lack of spam (thanks mods)

      I love this lens, and I love our group and the great celebration we are going to have. WOOHOO! Although the admins lenses will not count for the contest, I'll write one just for the challenge and fun of it! Thanks Paul for a great lens.
