[quote=567574]I find myself visiting ALL forums far less. Facebook/Twitter has killed internet forums, IMO. In a world in which virtually everyone views time as being valuable (even those who seemingly have an endless supply), one must ask themselves if they care to post messages to a select few online friends on several different forums they visit or post messages on Facebook; just ONE place where most all of the same people from their favorite forums are also members, PLUS their families, co-workers, tons of old friends from school, numerous related businesses/companies, and countless others, who will ALL see what you have to say in ONE click. Frankly, the choice is really so simple that it’s not even much of a choice at all.
[/quote] That's two entirely different social networks for me. I have some overlap to be sure, but with all the family and church friends on fb who have no interest in archery, hunting, shooting, etc., I don't post much about that stuff on fb. I update fb re: significant family updates (not the
"oh, look how cute little suzie looks with catsup on her face for the nineteenth time this month"
stuff), missions trip photos and updates, and legitimate news type stuff, as well as simply communicating with individuals. I belong to 4 forums that are all very specifically focused, and with the exception of 'non-archery' stuff here, most of my posts don't venture far off the beaten path of the forum topics on the other forums. If I post my new bow info on fb, I'm lucky to have 10 people who really care as a part of that network, and even fewer who actually know what I'm talking about. Here I may have less people who care, but at least ya'll know what I mean. [img]http://www.indy-archer.com/smileys/mathews_tongue.gif[/img]
