            It is very hard for me to imagine ANYONE getting withdrawal symptoms from the Loss of THAT Website!

              There are a LOT of great Studebaker people and a LOT of good Studebaker content on Facebook.
              A LOT of different Studebaker pages (too many, really).
              And a LOT of Studebaker people there that feel exactly the same way about the SDC forum
              (that you so eloquently grouse here about Facebook).

                This is the first time I've clicked on the Forum in weeks. Funny this subject is here, I limit my activity on both Facebook and the Forum. I've deactivated and actually deleted my Facebook account(s) in the past. I've tried, but you can't deactivate or delete your SDC Forum Account.

                There may be moderation on the Facebook group. But, I haven't seen it in action if there is. Plus, if moderation is there, it's not in any way as restrictive as it is here. Never seen a "thread locked" on Facebook.

                One topic recently on the Facebook page was a poll on how many there were former members of alt.autos.studebaker back in that day. Saw some names there that I haven't seen in years, or have never seen here.

                I've kept a presence on Facebook because it is a connection to family, distant and local. Believe me, Facebook is not my favorite medium. But, the family reasons justify keeping it. Studebaker Addicts and a group that discusses the history of my hometown are just a small added bonus to keeping Facebook around. The family factor is not a consideration for me on this Forum. My activity on both FB and The Forum are very limited today due to an avoidance of fabricated controversy. Do not discount the viability of the Facebook Page. People use it for other reasons, and thus, the Studebaker Addicts Page is an easily accessible fun factor to avoid their stupid Facebook Newsfeed.

                  Some Facebook groups are moderated well. Some are definitely not. I just delete posts that I find offensive and sometimes unfollow people who think profanity is cute. So far it works fairly well.

                    I like FB because as stated, you can block those that you finds disagreeable (trolls...) and there seem to be a lot of young Stude owners, plus it's picture heavy!

                      I started a Facebook group called "FINS"; obviously to share photos and memories of cars with fins. We just passed 16,000 members all over the world.

                      As far as moderating or administrating the group, it becomes impossible for the moderator(s) to view each and every individual comment, let alone every post.
                      Occasionally someone will comment, "I wish the moderator would do his/her job and delete this."
                      Well, there is an ellipsis in the upper right corner of each post that leads to a an option of either reporting the post to an administrator or directly to Facebook.
                      Lots of people complain easily; it seems not so many are able to assist in the solution.
                      For the most part, the folks in my FINS Group seem to understand why we're there. I seldom get any "member reported" posts, and even less often see anything untoward myself.

                      When you start a group, you define the group and you set the rules.
                      And when you visit Facebook, you define your needs and you set your rules.
