POLL: Do you use the Facebook?

Postby Zach Engle » Thu Mar 29, 2018 9:39 am

I'm just curious about how widespread Facebook usage is among TearJerker Members. There is no need to comment and your vote is not required, but it is greatly appreciated!

Most importantly, your answer is anonymous!

I voted Yes, Occasionally. But that's not really an accurate answer.

I am a reluctant Facebook user, and minimize my participation. However, several of my favorite forums have moved to Facebook Groups, so if I want to keep up, I have to join them. But, I do not have a personal Facebook account that is shared with other users. Instead, I create an anonymous account with privacy locked down as tight as possible. I don't follow, like, or "friend" anyone, and only participate within that specific Group. Then make up another anonymous account for a different group.

Forums are easy to search and have logical order to the conversations. Facebook Groups are a jumbled mess. So, if you are considering making a switch away from forums, I would strongly vote to not do so.

/end of un-asked-for rant. ;)

I only have camping friends on Facebook. I do belong to several groups that support interests that I enjoy.

Doug and I were reluctant to start a Facebook page for The Land of Lincoln Chapter, but kept getting requests to do so. We now have a closed group Page that requires one of the 3 of us to accept new people in. ALL of our gathering info is kept on the TJ site. People are directed to go there for the Who, what, where, when and why of what we are doing. But I must say, we have gotten requests from several new people to join that we may not have gotten without this page. We do announce when registration for each gathering is open on FB. But they have to go on TJ to get the details. The FB page allows our members to keep in touch about lots of subjects that may not make for good forum conversation and would not be of interest to anyone outside of our group.

So after all that, FB is a necessary evil, for us as Directors.

Yes, I am on Facebook daily. I have thought about creating a TJ Natural State closed group hoping to catch a few more members, ;smile; .

I am not on Facebook and don't plan on joining anytime soon. I do miss some conversations between my 3 brothers who are, but we also have a group text on our cell phones that get used a lot. Also my retired wife seems to fill me in on certain subjects that come up on Facebook, since she is on Facebook. ;razz;

I try to limit my general Facebook use, but do love the groups as it allows meet to connect with folks with similar interests and learn so much. I’m in camping groups, chicken groups, gardening and many teardrop and camping groups. That’s where I found you guys :-)

I have created a closed group on Facebook for The Natural State, will encourage all who ask to join to sign up on this site.

Kenny T wrote:Mike, it is Tear Jerkers The Natural State, trouble is I have created two by the same name. I had one started, stopped to look for the picture of the logo you and Zack came up with, couldn't find the group when I went back so I made another. Then I left them both, went back and the cover pic of the logo wasn't up, so I went back to my files and uploaded it again with out realizing I was creating two groups. Lol Don't know if you can make sense out of this, have looked and looked on how to delete one of them. I am a computer immigrant, I came much later than most.

I found it! Send in request to join. You should see that soon. Thanks!!
