7173 Forum versus 7173 Facebook
#31
I have worked in IT for 33 years, so I have seen every emerging trend, for better or for worse. The 7173 forum is definitely the way to go, no question about it. I have a Facebook account, but I don't share very much at all. It is just to read the comments for sites like my local paper, and a few others. The genie is already out of the bottle and will never go back in again, but in my opinion Facebook and other social media sites are and/or will be the downfall of Western civilization. LOL Remember back when people thought it would be great for everyone's opinions to be posted immediately out there for everyone in the world to see? Well it isn't! And how do these little nerds become billionaires from a site that they originally created in their dorm room? Through selling advertising of course, but also by selling personal information, and then backtracking when they are called out on it. The little guy puts on a suit and sits before Congress (on a phone book no doubt) and apologizes, and then it's back to business as usual.

There's still some interesting, valid comments coming in on this subject. Funny thing is, we don't seem to have heard much if anything from the "Facebook" folk. I'm sure there are many who, like us, visit both from time to time.
For me, I'm on Facebook reluctantly. I do NOT go on public forums or groups and I limit the number of "Friends" to people I know personally and family. Problem is I have zero control on anything I comment on if one of my "Friends" puts it on public sites. And there lies the issue!!
For the most part, I'm staying here, period!

IMHO nothing good happens after 2 am or on FB. I’ll stay here if y’all have me.

I kinda look at the forum vs Facebook thing like the difference between a group of car guys and a car show. The group will share experiences, offer advice, have a few laughs and in general, have a good amount of respect for each other.

FB groups is like a free car show, where they let anyone in, and the conversations typically follow the path of:

5 posts saying they had the exact same car back in the day and wish they hadn't sold it, but it was a different year, a different color, a straight six and in the end, you find out it was really an AMC Pacer.
23 posts with out of focus pictures of their car and no input toward the OT.
3 posts so badly mis-spelled you don't have a clue what they are trying to get across
4 posts calling out the badly mis-spelled posts
15 posts calling the 4 responders "grammar/spelling nazis"
3 posts with incorrect information
6 posts calling out the bad info
3 posts from the bad info posters, saying "that's how it was cuz I bought it off the delayer's lot like that"

1 post that is actually OT and answers the OP.
