  • Forum versus Facebook .

    Been seeing a lot of tearjerker posts on Facebook . Not on the tearjerker site , but on the general site . Why are we ignoring our own forum when much of what is posted could be helpful and encouraging 🤔 to our new members ?

    Unfortunately Facebook just gets 10000000x the traffic that the website does Any time I share something to the Liberty Bell TearJerkers group on Facebook I always point people back here. But people are just generally on Facebook a lot more (guilty myself).

          I check in here every day. I have a Facebook account (out of necessity for a community service page I run), but have zero personal interaction on my account. I check the TearJerkers Facebook Group maybe once every couple of weeks or so.

            Never have, never will. Would just leave the group if my only communication option was Faceberg.

              It’s just the way it is now. FB is so much easier and convenient to take quick glances. But forum has so much more information.

                i check the forum every morning

                i check FB every morning

                IMHO the more information(factual) i can gather makes me better rounded individual

                FB does require one to weed out the crazies on a regular basis

                verifying information using several sources helps vaidate it

                when conflicting information pops up on my screen i research the sources and verify which information is factual and which isn't

                sources of bunk get blocked/unfollowed ...

                  I just set up a Facebook group for the Dixie Chapter. I did explain within the description that the main posts will still be on the TearJerker Forum. Facebook just gets so many views that I felt this was a way for more folks to find out about TearJerkers and the Dixie Chapter. It is also much easier way to post pictures of our Gatherings. So I feel they will work well together.
