I "liked" routerforums on facebook a while ago - the difference is that you will see other (non members) people post comments to the articles that appear.

Gee folks, why all the hatred for facebook. It's not a one or the other. If you don't do facebook, no biggie and if you prefer the forum, great.
I'm on facebook - get to keep in touch with friends I haven't seen in person in years.
And my family has a family group - we use it to set up family events - sure beats a thousand emails floating around.

I joined Facebook out of necessity , as I had this guy from Florida help me figure out how to build my life size Terminator , source parts etc . So I joined as he wanted me to see his gallery with hs collection of statues , so it's the least I could do .

I don't know much about Facebook other than that . I hit the like button on Facebook when I was directed from the above link if it helps

Stick: it is certainly an avenue that allows people to post anything and everything, from stupid cat pictures to heartwarming stories.
Some of the posts, however, are so riduculously off the wall that they make me cringe. However, as with some of the posts here, if it isn't my cup of tea, I stay out of the conversation.

Charles: there are 1213 facebook users that like Routerforums facebook page - wouldn't it be nice if those users became members of this forum. After all, there are woodworkers that live outside of this forum.

I just find it humourous when I read comments like, "not for me" or "I'll never do it". I betcha there was a time when those same comments were being made about a router forum. :grin:

We have no desire to make anyone change. We like you just the way you are.

Facebook (for those who are already on there) is just another outlet for folks to keep updated with topics and projects on our site.

It also lets other woodworkers know that this is an amazing community.

I reluctantly got on Facebook 2-3 weeks ago to accommodate a classmate. Sometimes, it's great. Most times a lot of trash. I have had to work hard at filtering. I looked at it, but this site seems to better suit my needs for this forum. I will, however, look at the Facebook forum more so that I can make a more informed decision.

If I had wanted 'to connect' with old Highschool classmates I would have done so years ago.
I figure they knew my name they would have contacted me by now. ;)

I think your classmates took a vote and said "NO"

No wonder the guys want to raid your stash WHEN YOU'RE NOT THERE - you need a link to anti-social media :surprise:

I tried it. It just does not appeal to me. I am still on it, but do not really logon much. Every time that I do I see the same people talking about the yummy steak that their wonderful hubby just cooked (with a picture). I am sorry, glad you loved it, move on. I like to call it Fakebook. Maybe I am too set in my ways. Either way I am OK to live my life without it. More peaceful without it. Just my opinion. I was joking and said " I don't even like people who like Facebook". I did this in person, I did not post it. Well someone took offense to it. So now I just stay out of it.

That whole area was a mudbowl 20 years ago; clearcut.
The new owners hydroseeded it and now it's a healthy young mixed conifer forest. When we moved up here in '03 the trees were basically shrub like with lots of smallish Alders and Cherry, some Western Maple.
Now the Alder and Cherry are being starved by the teenage D. Firs and Hemlock...Mother Nature doing what she does best.

Seriously, where's the connection between pervs and shareholders?

If I had to guess I'd suggest that the vast majority of shares are traded by High Frequency Trades, not average folks (like us), never mind "sexual predators".

Unfortunately, there is no privacy anymore. It is just an illusion. Most people don't even bother to read the EULA (End User License Agreement) when they accept software, access, or usage of anything on the net. If people to time to read, understand, and analyze what they are giving up it would scare the living bejesus out of them.

Not that what Facebook does hasn't probably prevented a lot of sickos from taking advantage but how much does it miss? In the meantime it probes into your life, and I would like to know how often it flags and fosters problems for innocent people.

I'm with you Vince! I like FB too! Since joining, a few years back, I've hooked up with classmates from grade school, high school and the old neighborhood. Even had a grade school and neighborhood reunion (in person) thanks to FB. And it's also a cheap method to stay in touch with family that are far away!
