Blame it on the racing, TrikeFest, Group destination rides or the wealth of some GoodPeople and shared knowledge.
I’d have to agree with you it’s not just a site, if you add beer a campfire and the love of 3Wheelers. The base Community goes deep...I wonder the number of Lurking eyes that don’t post but know at one time they did contribute and were involved.

Did Fakebook go down or did it finally wear thin?

After being on bookface for acouple months now, WHY is it so much better than the forms ? Bookface has killed so many good forms of info theses forms have to offer? This is just a question to all u old time members that havenít been here for a while cause of bookface.

This is just a question to all u old time members that havenít been here for a while cause of bookface.It's the instant notification and instant gratification that make Facebook appealing. Plus you can go from trikes to vinyl records all on the same platform. It's kind of a one stop shop and we all got lazy.

Honestly for me it was the effectiveness of the blocking features on Facebook that hooked me originally.

If I didn't want to see people, I *really* didn't have to. Here, unfortunately, too easy to use a VPN, re-register accounts, deal with the moderation, etc.

The mobile usage on Facebook and the ease in uploading and sharing pictures and content in that way was a lot easier and faster.

Then overtime as it got more populated, there was more content to consume there, kinda like bkm is saying, so then it wasn't just to catch up with trikefest people, it was welding groups, motorcycle groups, politics, family, etc. etc...

Certainly given me somethings to contemplate though, all the recent events.

Yes Facebook's blocking features are incredibly refined and effective at blocking the truth, conservative, Right Wing, and Republican free speech.

It's amazing.... but I digress

I hope you guys stick around. I heard MySpace is still up

It wasn't always that way, but I agree, and that's why I intend on phasing out my usage of it now.

I figured there would be a thread somewhere on here, after reading all the stir up on bookface.

I’ve always been on here, never stayed away. But as others have mentioned, I assume the classifieds and all on here will soon be full of competition again.

Hope everyone has been well!

Wow, a lot of long time members showing up again. Nice to see. FB sucks most of the time, i use it for a few groups that i am active on when i get bored, this last year gave me a fair amount of time to be bored so i started popping back in here. Will be interesting to see what the new year brings on here.

Ok I'll be the dumb-azz here and ask, are we referring to fakebook in general terms or a particular site on FB that I didn't know of? Regardless, this is my go-to for all things in and out of trikes. I met great people at TF-15 because of this site and would love to attend again to catch up and share a beverage with y'all. See that...a Canadian said y'all...eh!

Facebook overall, I think. This never happened to me, but my understanding is that FB aggressively started editing (removing / blocking) people's posts. Say for example I posted "Don't vote for candidate B. He is going to eliminate blue collar pipeline jobs and promote lawlessness by opening borders to illegals". An hour later that post could be covered or blocked with a message something like:
"This post removed because independent fact checkers determined it was false or misleading information."
This censorship was very one (left) sided, according to most.
The straw that broke the camel's back may have been when the sitting POTUS had his account blocked / deactived on Twitter.

This had zero affect on me personally since I don't share my political opinions on any social media platforms.
Actually, it did have one affect which is increased activity on this side, so that is a positive change for me.
So I continue to have a FB account and I continue to either ignore, not notice, or not be bothered by any political content that may exist there.

And maybe I am wrong, but I continue to not care that they edit and censor content to fit their own agenda.
I'm reminded of something an old friend told me years ago. I asked if why it didn't bother him to watch NFL when he clearly knows the games are fixed.
He said:
"Horseracing is fixed too, but that doesn't make betting on it any less fun".

It was as Keister said fake book in general. However, there are groups on there dedicated to trikes. But they suck! each one is dominated by a few. These few decide how things are. They constantly "shill" others and demean people. They seem to each have some click of ppl who are unaccepting of others ideas and tease and make light of others who do not have as much cash to sink into a project. another bad aspect is that there are no archives at all. The only way to find old info is to scroll and scroll forever till you maybe find what you had seen days previous. for almost any type of activity, there is a group on fake book. but these type of old sites are so much better for developing a good community weather it be trikes or anything else. Just better platforms. Facebook is a platform used to steel your info, track you and advertise to you. They do this under the guise of being what most think they are. what is worse, is those that know this use it anyway. Including me....
