Social Networking: Connect At MGM Foxwoods

April 5, 2009: blog post from Comptropolis.com -- I'm not sure how many of you have heard about MGM at Foxwoods social networking site, Connect. The network launched back in November and four months later, there isn't much happening on the site. The discussion section of the site is a basic forum and currently boasts 7 whole threads, the last one was posted on over a month ago. The blog section, which should be a prime place for MGM to connect with customers hasn't been updated in almost two months. Even direct questions to MGM are left unanswered.

The group section is just as disappointing. There are a total of 9 whole groups ranging from "Why Macs are Cool" to "My clothes all smell like nasty casino smoke" Most of these groups are made up of the same two profiles: Admin and BlueEyes, whose profile states that he's a marketing consultant currently in Connecticut.

As for how many people are in the network, a whopping 67 total. The main page only shows the 10 latest members, but currently all of them as pictureless, bare bones profiles.

Have any of you even heard of Connect? It seems like MGM hasn't done anything to market this site, wouldn't it be easier to make a Facebook fan page for the site?
