Shawn, no offense, but reading your post, you are shooting yourself in the foot.
In reply to your first paragraph, yes, I went to a dealer's page, and that is kind of what started this... a DEALER posted in the GENERAL forum about "Bachmann", but clicking the link just got me the normal FB "stream of consciousness" drivel. Besides needing to have all my shields up when going to FB, I had to try to find what MIGHT have been of interest. Next time Trainworld, post the link to the video also.
OK, but to the "shooting in the foot"...
You state: "For me I don't have the time to sit on a computer picking through each forum topic etc."
But then you tell me this is better: " just scroll down until you see something that catches your eyes"
So, instead of being able to go DIRECTLY to the MOTIVE POWER forum, that I am interested in, and read about just that topic, I should go to a FB page and SCROLL until I find something I like?
So, our minds must work very differently. I can concentrate on the topics I am interested in immediately and then see rapidly which topics have been updated... you scroll until you find something you like. Any time you want to compete on which takes less time, let me know, but it should be obvious.
So when you talk about "For me I don't have the time to sit on a computer picking through each forum topic etc" but you can scroll and scroll until you find something you like just seems like a huge waste of time. Wanting to read or learn about specific things is WAY slower and/or IMPOSSIBLE with FB.
I can get what I am interested in right away, and you are scrolling scrolling scrolling on a HUGE SINGLE thread/forum effectively.
This is why groups that look for specific information, like a 1940 Chevy go to a forum, not FB. This is why if I want to learn about DCC or post something helpful on DCC I go to a forum, not FB.
Each has it's purpose, and clearly what you want from the hobby is more entertainment than specific information, since FB is not organized in any fashion except for who posted last. What you want is fine of course, it's just not what I want.
So you FB fans that put down those of us who just don't get what we want from FB, you should realize that you are NOT getting the same thing, the same tools, the same great compendium of information. I'm not putting down FB, BUT it's of very little use to ME in this hobby. Likewise perhaps the FB fanboys could stop trying to insult people who don't like FB.
