When I pressed the link to the FB page I got this message so didn't go any further?

the "new" bit sounds worrying..

Agreed, it sounds a bit like a dodgy version of Facebook, but when I clicked on the link at the top of this page I got taken to the correct site.

I've just manually navigated to the BX page on Facebook, and this is the address:
http://www.facebook.com/groups/6373252570/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Is it something to do with the new group stuff that came in recently, before the link was posted, and so it is a conversion from the old
kind of address for a group to the "new"?

Possibly?

Anyway, I just joined, woo!

could be I guess, but I still cant see why that would change the WWW address?

Is there anyway to encourage the folks who post regularly on the facebook page to be more active on the forum in any way?

It seems a shame the traffic that passes the facebook page and yet doesnt contribute here much if at all and they generally miss out on the more detailed info available here.

Just thinking aloud

I think it's the instant gratification of Facebook. You go on the page and get a very superficial overview with a few pictures of BXs floating about.
