I think it’s a mistake to use Facebook as a model. It is inherently individual, while this is community based. It makes sense for Facebook to have a page “It’s all about me”, but that doesn’t make sense for a community page. This is always going to become a second-rate version of the forums, which will confuse anyone who comes to the page.
If we want a status page, it has to be the status of the Community, rather than the status of an individual. For example, it could list the number of members, with updates as new members join. It could list the activity in the forums, showing which ones are active, and showing the addition of any new forums. The number of members is shown in the home line above, but I don’t think people will automatically look at that.
We can think about something else, but it has to be about the community, and not about individual members.
