I think it is a great idea. I do something similar on my website although I must admit I don't have a lot of info for it yet and it can be time consuming. I would like to see 'This Day in British History' on the forum mainly because I don't really like or use facebook. While facebook is a good platform for such things I think something equally as good could be incorporated into the forum. I hope a few more people would like to see it here as well.
