    I like the idea behind this. I don't do that social media stuff however, so I'm unable to participate.

    Same here. I'm confused and a bit disappointed as to why it's needed (wouldn't forums be enough?). I don't use any social websites and if everything goes well I never will. I'm sure there are more people like us.

    By posting to social networks you end up promoting your benchmark results and in turn PTS/OB, to gain broader coverage/exposure of PTS.
