Well don't want to upset anyone but the atmosphere is very cordial over on the Facebook SWOG. Lots of pictures, banter, info and freedon to post

Yeah, I think most are alive and well and posting on FB. 'cos it's lively, well behaved and friendly but I'd much prefer all to come back here 'cos a forum has far better potential for storing useful knowledge and asking questions. I think the problem is the age old one of personality clashes and to get them all back this place would have to relax the policing and allow a certain amount of B.S.

Dear All,

Having a lovely time on FB. Natives are friendly. Company excellent with happy atmosphere. Lots to do, its one long party with maybe 50+ posts per day with loads of pictures and videos too. All the old gang have emmigrated.

Shame really, I don't really take to facebook. I formed my opinion after hearing the following conversation between two women friends (the names have been changed, blah, blah blah).

Sarah: Have you seen Mary's new baby yet?

Harriet: Yep, on facebook yesterday.

Shocking that anyone would consider facebook an alternative to sharing the experience of a new born baby. It's put me off for life.

handy though if living at different ends of the country though..

have not been in too look in here since my offer to leave the forum alone, it was only all the expats over on FB that pushed me to take a peek, seems nice and quiet just the way they like it here,
for anyone interested in seeing how the woodland bees are doing, you know where to find me :D

I've been away for ages and come back for a look round again (I never posted much) and this is how it seems to me. Some people don't like the way Facebook works and it's not good for accessing old posts, but it's people and content that really matter and the Facebook group is clearly where things are happening now.
