Thread Name: BS: A solution to Fakebook
Subject: RE: BS: A solution to Fakebook
Stilly - I've been a member of a British guitar forum for about 20 years.
It is an amazing archive of a long gone guitar brandname.
Facebook has all but killed it.
I'm just glad it still struggles on...

What reaally annoys me is that newcomers end up at facebook first,
seemingly without realising the parent forum exists...

Guitarist post a wealth of info which should be contibuted to the forum archive,
but they don't, and it gets lost forever.

Some of those facebookers must waste enormous time
reseaching and photographing for their facebook posts... and it's gone in days...

Whereas the forum archive has remained available and easily searchable for 2 decades..


..but for how much longer...???
