I don't see any need to charge anyone. We (Jude and I) trade off years paying for the domain registration, and Al hosts the site on his server. (I think I have that right.)

I mean, speaking personally, there are a few who post exclusively here and not also on HoF, and I think $20 every other year is worth it to keep those people in my life.

I check about once a month and now that TORC has changed (I can’t even get on it anymore despite keeping my account updated as much as possible) I’ll probably come check more often.

Honestly, I hate FB and would love to be on the forums more. I only keep FB to keep in touch with people who used to post here.

Maybe it would be a bit more active if we started linking to posts here on FB when we have a discussion here? On our own walls or on meta-TORC?

I love this board and would hate to see it go, but since I also don’t contribute financially, my thoughts shouldn’t carry much weight either.

Your thoughts do count!

I wouldn't mind linking to here, though I'd to want make sure the private forums are truly private. I'm a lot freer here than I am on FB.

Exactly. There are times when I want to share something, but FB just isn’t the place. I don’t really go on HoF - never felt welcome there. Maybe it’s changed, but… it’s b77 that feels like home.

I keep hearing people say they hate Facebook, and yet they keep posting there. It's like a powerful drug that you know is bad for you but you just can't keep away. :suspicious:

I wonder, if Facebook suddenly crashed permanently, would we suddenly be busy again?

I don't hate FB. The site itself is pretty good and there's a good reason it was so ubiquitously popular for a while. I think what ruined it was how people used it. You click on profiles and people will have 300, 500, 800 "friends" and that just makes for a terrible experience IMO. I think if everyone had kept it to a small group of actual friends and family - ie. using social media to help keep connected with people you actually socialize with - it could have remained as cool and enjoyable as it was in the early days.

THis! ^^^

And I say this as someone with hundreds of "friends" I barely know, but when you're in theatre, you can't refuse to friend people you were in a show with. Over time it builds up...

I sort of just quit Facebook a couple of years ago without even thinking about it much. Every time I logged on, one of my relatives would be posting something political/hateful and my distress levels would rise. I quit opening the program and felt much better. Now the only time I get on Facebook is when I'm looking for hay to buy. For some reason more hay is listed on Facebook marketplace than in Craigslist nowadays :scratch: , so I kinda/sorta have to go there. I don't browse peoples' posts anymore, though. It's just too distressing.

Ditto to all that. It's too difficult to calibrate anything you might want to say for such a wide audience. And everyone must feel that, because hardly anyone does real posts anymore; it's just shares and ads.

I don't need Facebook, I have a mom who knows everything about everyone, and did since before the internet was invented. :D

Granted, these days, she gets some of her updates from Facebook.
