FacebooK? Pain the rear end! Killed off my Landy Rally forum good and proper. It was thriving until one of the teams started a Landy Rally page, that was that.

I'm afraid I don't have time for throwing virtual flans at each other, or all the other stupid stuff they indulge in. Great when you're at school I'd imagine, but a waste of space for adults if you've got a life.

Rant over! mad

Face book is OK for keeping in touch with family the other side of the world, but I prefer to email.

Still good to see Tugs 4x4 on FB. Each to their own....

I love it, I have met up with friends I haven't seen in years and it's a great way to keep in touch with friends and family who live abroad it's cheaper than phone calls and instant unlike letters.

I'm also on twatter but don't use it much at least with face book you're interacting with people you know not so called celebrities who think their big or clever and usually are not either.

I consider Facebook a good tool if used correctly! I work half the year overseas, so its a good way of keeping in touch with family and friends and sharing photos and info. You can easily block the cr*p posts from showing up if you want to.

Fine for family and friends, but for specifics like our hobby/pastime/business, it's only duplicating what this forum can do.

Not only that, this forum is a whole lot easier to use. Having seperate categories means you don't have to trawl though a minefield of chit chat, you can go direct to EVENTS or whatever without having to hear what folk had for breakfast and how their pet bunion is fairing.

Keeping in touch with family & friends via FB is fine, it's a 'social networking site' after all, and to a degree hobbies where no forum like this one exists, but why oh why did they allow pages for business is beyond me? One reason alone - revenue, pure and simple.

Yeah I agree , ''but why oh why did they allow pages for business is beyond me''

However I don't think you can compare facebook with forums, they target different users. I.e. I don't use Facebook to find out the best way to import my vehicle, or how to do a head gasket, and I dont use Forums to tell my mates, I am coming home and who fancies a beer?
I have managed to get back in contact with 99% of all my old mates, which was great after my divorce by using Facebook. I agree it should never be used as a business tool.
If some one writes C*ap all the time on Facebook, its easy...... Delete.com them.... problem solved.....
