Poll : Are forums superseded by Facebook in 2018?
Yes and thanks for all the fish......
Possibly but I'll still use them especially AmigaWorld.net ;-)
Possibly and there will come a day when I'll stop posting!
No, the day I waste time on Facebook is the day I give up on life!
No, Facebook does not compare to AmigaWorld.net.
No, forums are a place of community whereas Facebook is vapid in comparison!!
I don't care! Pancakes!!!!

@BigD

I enjoy the forums almost daily but probably more a lurker these days, to busy working on Amiga projects and posting in other forums.

@BigD,

Facebutt is for family, LinkedIn for work, and right here on Amiga forums for real info and what matters.

If you'd read the link to Mac-Forums you'd have seen the moderators pointing to Facebook as the obvious extension of their forum once it's dead!

If Facebook is the "obvious extension of" Mac-Forums then it's no wonder Mac-Forums is dead. Facebook is a horrible place as far as I'm concerned, where everything is modeled on a timeline and it's well nigh impossible to find old stuff you actually need.

As I wrote, Fedora Forum is still going strong as far as I can tell, as are other Linux forums. They're even useful, which is more than I can say for Facebook.

"Yes" if you let it. Places like this forum are special. Just say no to Facebook.

The forums are dying because of a lack of interest in the Amiga.


My point was that the forums medium is dying generally and then I used a Mac forum as an example. [CUT]


People spend all their time on social forums nowadays.

Apple dandy users are addicted to Instagram and Periscope that's why their forums are dying.

Yes you're right. Find older infos on Facebook is a PITA...

Hello World. Just Made Coffee.

No, but Amiga.org and Amigaworld.net should be merged.
