What is your opinion of Facebook/Twitter BOC's versus Wootoff BOC's?
I have fanatically followed both the Wootoff's and the Birthday/Dealgebra BOC's over the past few months. For me, the way they are offered does not really matter, but I prefer the Wootoff ones for two reasons. The first is that the Wootoff BOC's get a prominent place in the 'Woots' tab in the community forums, while the Facebook/Twitter ones must go to the 'World of Woot' tab, where they seem to get lost. I suppose this is because the FB/Twit offers are 'Woot VIP'. The second reason (it may be due to the first reason) is that there are significantly fewer posts for the FB/Twit BOC's and it seems that there is less banter/excitement/overall fun for these versus the Wootoffs BOC's. Plus, the buzz during the Wootoff is intense when the BOC comes up and the server hiccup or whatever. The FB/Twit BOC's seem almost secret, with much less hullabaloo. Just my two cents.
