Ecomodder Facebook group

Had a thought for admin:

I know a lot of people don't like Facebook but it would also make pictures a lot more uploadable and easy reviews there you can set it to where it's a closed group also and ask for a reason to join, also it would eliminate needs for 3rd party image sites, offline servers for storage....just a thought

Facebook adds a lot of tracking and would remove a lot of the functionality of this site - the garage entries, fuel logs, etc. Information is also a LOT harder to find in facebook groups than on this site, for starters.

Making people mad is fun.

Searching for something on fb sucks. If I search a yard sale group I get crap from 3 or 4 years ago.

Ah yes, Facebook: where forums go to die.

I think we've got at least a few good years left here.

We become relevant when gas prices go up and people freak out.
There's probably going to be fossil fuel domination of the transportation industry for at least a nother 20 years.

I remember in the 90s hearing "everyone will be driving electric cars by 2020", yeah electrics make up more like 0.25% of registered on road vehicles as of 2018.
They might reach half of one percent by the end of 2020.

There is enough profiling from Google. I can't parse 'but it would also'.

Sometimes my redneck dialect hits me when typing, I live in the sticks where the banjos play

I hope they're not 'paddle faster' banjos.

I retracted the statement. On review it was more "people don't like Facebook but it would also". Prolly 'people don't like Facebook, but it would ', right? Not a big deal.

Has started the thread changed your mind about Facebook? We haven't gotten into shadow profiles and billion dollar fines yet.
