    I would say that is a fair assessment based on my own experiences in more than a few groups.

    You usually have half a dozen people out of say 50 that know what they are talking about. Out of those 6 maybe 3 can actually articulate and convey the information. Then you have the incompetent cry babies who bitch to the owners/admins that you hurt their feeling because you told them they were wrong. It's a total joke.

    Not trying to cut an infomercial here, but everything you guys are mentioning is a reason to support SVTP. Contributions from members in the form of quality content really helps. If you want to make a monetary contribution; which helps keep the lights on; becoming a Premium Member, joining a support tier, or buying some merch definitely makes a difference. As does sharing links from SVTP on other platforms and subscribing to our YouTube channel.

    I'm on FB, but only for car news. Nearly everything is there. It's a must in order to keep up with what's going on in the car world.

    I started a FB group, back in 14' for a niche audience and put a priority on good content and no trolling. That said, it has a solid following now and people are nice to each other. It's about a third of the size of what it could be, but it's not a $hit show either. Nearly 8,000 members currently and most of them participate.

    The search function is very useful. That's a big misconception.

    I would like nothing other than forums to make a comeback. I would just start my own from my FB group and roll.

    I have been an SVTP member for a long time, check in regularly and always will.

    Any FB groups is only as good as those who admin is, same for any forum.

    In a FB group, the search feature isn't that bad, but it could be better. Group wise, that's when admin need to step up and make announcement posts with links to specific discussions. In a local group, someone asks about best pizza in our area, almost weekly. They get the same responses. I've said it would be easy for admin to make a poll, lock is as an announcement, and point people towards that next time the question comes up. Then comes the Karens with "Geez, I was just asking for advice, you don't have to comment if you don't like." or "you know, different people have different opinions, so I want to hear how people currently feel."



    Yeah, I help admin a group of 26K and growing. It too is a no BS, no trolling, no memes type place

    The closest thing I’ve ever had to social media is this forum. Never joined Facebook. I considered myself a 1%’er.

    I dumped twitter after this happened. there is a clear double standard and whatever they get from my participation, even under pseudonym, I'm not willing to let them have anymore.

    Got banned on FB today.

    Apparently saying Dwayne Wade’s kid is a tranny

    ... when his kid actually is a tranny and they are open about the kid being a tranny.... is a 3 day bannable offense lol

    I haven’t had social media since MySpace was a thing. Never got a Facebook account and I can’t imagine I ever will. Facebook marketplace has essentially taken the place of Craigslist so that seems to be the only thing Facebook is good for.
    I loathe social media and what it is doing to society. It is a cancer and needs to be eradicated before society is completely destroyed

    I got rid of mine years ago.

    There’s something about ex’s and old hookups reaching out and messaging me that the wife didn’t particularly care for. Honestly haven’t missed it.

    She has one so like said previously, If I’m looking for something or need to sell something I use hers.

    Got a feeling I’d stay in Facebook jail anyways.

    No social media ever for me. Also no cable tv or fake news, sports where some over paid athlete wants to insult the USA !

    I've logged in a few times but just can't do it. Deleted my account a few months ago and man does it feel good.
