So I was thinking the other day and I know I am very new to the Facebook thing myself but would the admins of this page be interested in starting a fb group page so we could go there since this page seems to be not as active as it once was. It would be easier to post pics and we could stay in contact easier maybe just a thought.

We’ll be completely revamping this site within the next few weeks.

Members will then be able to upload pictures to their posts, along with multiple other new features.

I’ll post more details later, as I have them.

Facebook is a problem in so many ways. I'm sure there are those that like it......... and I'm sure there are those that will never go near it.

I won't go near it......... many reason's for such.

I'm on Facebook and a member of a couple groups there, but generally only use it when someone wants me to look at something, or chime in on a topic. Interesting that I also used it last year to identify a trespasser & trail cam thief whose picture I got on another trail cam. Turns out facebook is a pretty good tool for that purpose [Wink]

For this bulletin board to move there, would eliminate our ability to have classified ads with gun sales. Along with some other drawbacks associated with most of the wide-open social media venues. But our new HH.com site will probably at least have "tweet" and "like" buttons for those who want to share links on those two venues.

Stick I've only been on Facebook a couple years now. There is a lot of garbage on there as well as good.
It will be up to the individuals to (Scroll On) or not let their ego's not over ride their tail.
Looking forward to seeing new stuff for the site.

Again it will depend on that age ol adage " Which animal will they feed"

This is just my take on it. I am very active on FB ... FB has it's positives but a ton of negatives too. I use it to network mainly. I will say that hunting "groups" on FB generally suck and anymore I avoid them. People add me to their hunting groups it seems like every day and most of the time I leave the group immediately.

Forums like this one and many others do a better job of keeping information organized. Topics flow and are much easier to be searched. The information shared is generally better.

And ... if you think the fighting on forums can get bad ... get into a FB Hunting Group argument ... holy crap! They get nasty, trains get derailed fast, and everything turns into a pre-school cat fight. I swear I lose IQ points ever time I join in a discussion on a FB Hunting Group.

I still love the old forums, even though across the board, forum participation is way down since FB and other social media has come into the picture.

I am on FB as well for a number of reasons:

1. Networking and information. I would say 90% of my church is on FB and it is a great way to promote and keep everyone up to date on various things. It is also great networking for our beekeeping hobby. I can literally let 1000’s of people know about catching swarms or doing a cutout - for FREE.

2. My family is all over the USA and daughter will end up in Thailand at some point. My mom especially likes the updates/pictures since she lives 5 hours away. FB is a great way to keep them current.

3. I belong to a few hunting and beekeeping pages. I filter those that get crazy and I leave. Don’t have time for people nuttier than a pile of squirrel turds. I exercise my right to delete or hide. Trapper Dave has a pretty good FB page and he keeps it filtered pretty well. So does Woody. I enjoy both of those and seeing stuff people catch or harvest.

All that said - I pick and choose what I want to be a part of.

I agree it would not be as organized for sure, but if it gets easier to post pics and stuff then this wont be bad. And really on one had fb and a forum like this really isn't that different you don't have to add people to your friend list and there for it would only be people you want. It was just a thought I still like getting on here stills seems more like a close group of friends than just everyone looking at it

'Nuttier than a pile of squirrel turds?" You can't get sayings like THAT just anywhere.

Been on this forum so long I can't even begin to remember when I found it? Learned more on here about deer hunting and people who like to argue than any place else. I WOULD however love to be able to load pics from my phone like I do everywhere else in life....and be able ti "Like" a photo or comment without spilling my guts

FB is the best thing since sliced bread When you get it figured out ! I’ve been in meetings a question ask. I PM the person and have an answer IMMEDIATELY . If your on a page with 5000 followers your in contact for info Quick . Same with getting “The Word “ out its instant you want to know about something go to that page and ask . my favorites are A Habitat Manegment Page A Native Plant Page ,INPAWS and a bee page If you don’t like it you just don’t know how to use it
