When FB came along and Pinecam went to hell, I quit visiting there completely and here less and less. Mostly because on FB, I can talk to friends and family globally, while this area grew and expanded. We used to go somewhere like the grocery or a restaurant, and I’d know 80-90% of the people. Now, I know 1-5% of them, and that may be due to knowing the waitstaff or cashiers. It’s a different world is all.
How to fix it, get folks back on here? I’ll think about that since I’m guilty of being absent. I miss the conversations and the friendliness of that time and would love to get back to a local forum!

I find it an invasion of privacy (not that there is any)....I am dis connected and I do not need
the intrusion. SO, I forget the competition U are facing....the fact is..Facebook is faulty in so
many ways,I simply do not understand the continuing popularity. I'm an oddity, I don't even have a
cell phone...don't want to be found....GPS TRACKING, not something I want to sign up for.
