This may sound strange, but I am not a member, won't do Facebook, Myspace or any of those Social Networks sites. I did twitter, reluctantly to try following the updates on a radio station I listen to, but that got old fast and I don't twit any more.

So this has some issues, like the web address and contact info it points toward is my EMAIL ADDRESS who ever is admining it now, I hope you change that to reflect the forum or beemaster.com - I don't want the billion face bookians emailing me, I have NOTHING TO DO WITH THIS FACEBOOK PAGE, please take my email info off the page!

I do appriciate members (looks like 68 right now) using a site like that, but I don't get these sites and never will. What happens there that doesn't happen somewhere in the forum here?

That last part is the info is out dated, almost 1000 members off and there is over 170 thousand posts here now NOT 68,000 like it says there. I hope the admin keeps up with the numbers or generically says THOUSAND of members and massive post count (or whatever) it is easy to outdate a page like this and it just doesn't seem right - if you start it, then see it through, don't abandon it.

That's just a few reasons I don't Facebook, I don't think the average page is keep current and better old news that no news isn't always realistic.

I am guessing its the first guy who posted in this thread but even that is just a guess, he may just be the one that posted about it. Still though he does kind of make it sound like its him.

I'm on there as well.  The way I see it, the only reason to do it is if you are already on FB and you just want to see the personal side of fellow beeks who you know from this site and because it lets your other non-beek friends know that you are into this hobby.  I always like it when people ask me about my bees...I'm pretty sure my wife and kids are sick of hearing about them :roll:...haha

I understand the reluctance of some to avoid the "social networks" they all tend to be a bit 'trendy' and 'teenie'.  I do FaceBook, Tweet, and MySpace but it's merely my bowing to the Giant Spider of the Web...Google.  It helps to be on their good side....so the major social networks are a good way to do that without completely selling out.

Anyhow.  Hello all...I'll find ya on Facebook, though I agree with the Master that this forum is a much better venue to speak bee with one another....FaceBook and the likes of it do have value.


Cheers,
Mac

our facebook page needs to pick up a bit.  pictures, posts, etc. 

come on guys.  facebook won't bite! 
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

I joined it - I work on the web and the various magazines that I work for use it to drive traffic to their main sites... so hopefully even if Beemaster is reticent, it'll drive like-minded people here to really get into proper discussions about bees.
