Fast work Janet - looks nice, but I bet that the Forum here still stays more popular. But it will be a nice place to share kitten videos........ Isn't that what Facebook is for.. or maybe that is YouTube... or Twitter....

To me this is my favorite forum! I love how fast we can get answers to our challenges.

i use Facebook to keep in touch with family/friends that i don't see everyday. It's OK for that but i really like this forum. I can get answers to many questions and yes I am one of the irritating ones who ask questions that have been answered in prev posts - i am bad at using the search function. I like that its a little social /quirky. Its fun to meet people after reading their posts for so long.

I strongly agree with this and it is the community that I enjoy as much as the technical learnings etc. I enjoy my Facebook place less and less. I administer a couple of groups there that have specialized interests, but by and large I don't think Facebook is nearly as much a community as this forum is. I don't mind the thread drift. I even posted a photo of what one restaurant termed "poutine" only to be told that real poutine doesn't have eggs in it.

I didn't know that. Proof positive that this forum is a full of technical knowledge.

Does facebook have a "I don't do facebook button"

If we like all boycott it, it will like probably not like make it and like the Escape facebook page will be used by like the generation that can't talk for like two minutes without like using the word "like" 12 times or twice in every sentence!

That generation has already left Facebook. My daughter does not post there.
All I found was my sister-in-law announcing that she was going to have a cup of coffee and go to work. So, I unfollowed her.

Social Media

Just remember anyone that sneaks onto Facebook even for a peek losses there right to complain about it and boycott it.

Cheers

Maybe we should form a Facebook page for Facebook boycotters.

Facebook is nice for casual chat and some folks really like it - for others it can be avoided entirely.

The FB page has links on it to the forum and I think it's likely that it will help direct escape owners and wanna be owners here. The interesting thing about social media is that there are many ways to share info and connect. The trick is to find a way that resonates for each person. I don't think the FB page will detract from the forum, it's just an additional way to stay connected

I went to hit 'like' on this post, but realized I was on the wrong site .

It think there will always be complainers whenever there is change. I have done so before too.

I'm really not complaining, just electing not to participate. I do not appreciate Facebook (notice I didn't say "like!") I have been on Facebook when at my daughter's house and a couple of hours messing around with it resulted in my decision not to have my own account. I don't have a problem with change whatsoever. To me, Facebook is like a romance novel. Not my thing. You won't catch me reading one! Or like Old Milwaukee, you won't find me drinking one!

Janet......valid point! I didn't even consider it as a conduit to the Forum. It makes sense to me now, though I will personally boycott FB.

Yup. Google needs the money.
I don't care unless members decide to post on FB and not here, because I'm not searching the net for Escape pages. I thought that was the point of the Forum, to have Escape relevant stuff and members in one place.

Perhaps we should have Facebook pages for each model of Escape?
