I subscribe to your blog and enjoy reading your take on various things happening in the food and nightlife world in Chicago...but these "facebook" updates are getting out of hand. If we wanted to know what all these folks were saying on their facebook pages we'd subscribe to them...please stick to reporting on real stuff. These posts just take up space and start to feel like you're being spammed...

Hey, South Loop Social Light. Thanks for your comments. The reason why I started the Facebook updates is to give people the LATEST info on what their favorite restaurants and bars are doing. This info is coming directly from the owners, chefs, etc. They're not sending me this information; I scroll their FB statuses to see what's going on, which IS "real reporting" and "real stuff."

No other media outlet is posting "real time" information and that is what people want. You guys are really busy, and I am making it as convenient as possible.

Again, thanks for your comments!
