There's a world of difference between "adding a link on a Facebook page"
in the hope that donations will magically roll in, and making a
considerable commitment in time+effort to re-engage with the user
community, with a clear marketing focus, via those channels - after a
year of practically next to no activity. And then, sustain that
commitment going forward.
In all seriousness, I have a gut feeling it stands to be at least as
effective a method of raising income as delivering an application which
is going to nag me (under one scenario) every week for money - with
respect, something I have not seen in a desktop application since the
days of shareware.
