you are inferring that Facebook adapted to mobile revolution whereas you did notI guess one of the biggest mistakes I made was that I did not adapt to mobile revolution, but I guess there is hard to compete with fb when people log in there every day to see other things than just these groups.

But you enabled it, you have effectively handed control of your forum to FB. It will die eventually because there will be no posts on the forum to post to FB.Volksdevil wrote:Well I've finally succumbed to facebook I've recently closed a forum that I've run for 10 years, it's just died a very slow death over the past 12 months or so.
The worrying thing is that I recently started a new forum (Much more targeted/specific which I think/thought was the way to go) but it's just not taking off I recently started a topic on there with the title "May have to close the site"
This topic automatically gets posted to a facebook page, and guess what? There are replies there on FB, but not on the actual forum So that's 1-0 to facebook right there.
