What do family members, friends, business associates, etc. get from Facebook that they couldn't get from a TMF board, for example?

If they sort it out, full control over who sees what, dummies can be totally blocked, you control spam, or any other irritation.. While still sharing what you want with either the Public, only Friends, or even Friends of Friends... Messaging is there if needed, too.. Or if you want to sell something, there's a Market place, want to promote your hobby, craft, artwork, pretty easy.. Want to play with 3D imaging, grab a newish iPhone, go for it... Politics is out there in whatever directions you want..

Like anywhere else, only put out there what is safe..

Uneasy about it, don't go there...

I Admin several Groups, from over 8,000 to 50 or 60... No problem... As anywhere, lots of lurkers, but lots of contributors, too.. I Joined, maybe 80 Groups of interest, don't always have time to check in everywhere, but do keep an eye on the ones I Admin.. Break the rules, gone!
