Where Did Everybody Go??? - 08-04-2017

Ten years ago when I joined this board there were many many members posting everyday. There was a lot of activity, but now the board is pretty much dead. Some topics show that the most recent posts occurred years, months or weeks ago. A lot of people are looking, but very few post anymore. Only a hand full of members post on any type a regular basis. I wonder if people have lost interest in the Mustang or enthusiast hobby in general. Perhaps people have found other interests or just out grown the hobby and moved on. Any one have any ideas on the situation?

There's still quite a few of us around. Sadly though, you'll find more activity on the social media site.

The group feature on social media has put a severe hurtin on forums. Forums are better at structuring data, searching for writeups, and searches. However, the mobility and ease of the social media site has had quite the impact.

Todd is correct. FB is putting many forums out of business, so to speak. There are no easy answers to reverse this trend.

Yeah, and what is sad is that many like myself refuse to have anything to do with social media. I dropped out of the Mustang club in my area because every thing was on Face Book and nothing current posted on the club's website. I'd rather be left out than be forced to join something like Face Book in order to participate.

Wow this is sad to see happen. Facebook has it's easier but loses the ability as started for searches and sticky topics.
