Well, in terms of bringing in new blood, it can do the world of good. We can share our content to the masses and put it in front of them in the main place that most people visit.
Being able to get onto peoples Facebook walls (We have to understand that in 2018, a HUGE amount of people visit websites because they saw something cool on a FB Page) is a huge part of marketing. We don't pay for ads to be run on/for DC so we don't really have any "reach" other than the occasional techy website reviewing us.
For a website to thrive, rather than just survive, you have to always look at ways to get more people onto your site, and interacting with it. Perhaps some of the facebook page fans will never visit the website, but if they are sharing the posts we make on there, then the chance of one of their friends seeing it and visiting us/signing up/donating greatly increases.
My one and only aim with this is to give DC another platform from which to share content from and generate more interest.
On a side note: It might also mean we get new blood on the forum, because as of recently it has mainly been the same 10 or so people posting...and although yes it is keeping the posts flowing...more people = more content = more fun!
