Forums have been dying a slow death for years. I think the only reason they've hung on this long is because the searchability for build threads was just easier. But now with the ability to post files, archive threads and search for threads...the forum crowd has basically just become the 30-50 somethings that joined forums in the early 2000's and don't want to change.

It's really not that difficult. You can set exactly who and what you want to see. I have 4-5 family members that will pop up in my news feed, a dozen or so friends, and about a dozen of the truck groups I admin...but have a couple thousand connections and a couple hundred groups. FB groups are no different than the forums, still have the dumbasses that shouldn't be allowed near a wrench, and the guys that have to correct them...but it's instantaneous with a few thousand active members, instead of 4. You'll get 50 responses in 15 minutes instead of 2 in 5 days.

I'd beg to differ, your statement was accurate 5 years ago, but as I mentioned above, that's just not the case any more. I've posted damn near everything in my $15k Ford library to my technical groups...you're not seeing the contents of any of this on any forum:

Also have a guy that is solely chronicling a $70k NOS build on one of my pages as well.

Besides, it's not an especially useful source of good information on specific subjects and matters either. Unless of course you want to post about yourself and how assaulted/kidnapped/murdered an employee at a local business on 9/10/2017, and yes, that DID happen here and is just another reminded of the mentality of too many of FB users and what draws them there in the first place.

*Might reconsider the Skype, it's just a phone call and if you like you can add video along with it. Have fun with it too, during the call point your cam at your dog while it's taking a dump or something else equally important.

Maybe I will do skype with someone some time, but not him.
I would hate to rant and rave and have spittle get all over my brand new Ipad 10.1.......

There is an app called Marco Polo that a band mate sent me a while back to exchange ideas. Send a short video and wait for a reply, similar to Snapchat except M.P. will store your videos on their servers instead of delete them.

^^^ I have to wonder about Charlies kid and the Skype. This because, in the US there really is no "long distance" anymore, so unless a person doesn't have a cell phone or a LL, or lives where there is no cell service available but there are interwebz, or unless his kid is in a foreign country, I can't see why anyone would really want to use Skype. Skype-to-Skype is free, Skype to a cell/LL is dirt cheap, and for a small fee one can have a phone number on Skype, so I suppose someone, in a quest to minimize bills, could bail on a cell/LL. Still, doesn't make much sense given that Verizon unlimited cell service + texting + pics + a couple GB with rollover data is dirt cheap, and I've found it's 25% cheaper with your employee discount.
