Re: MTF 10 years old
Well, I recently joined with the purpose of helping out. However, even though the average quality of posts is low, as long as there is tennis, this place ain't dying. Facebook is no alternative to a forum, because a forum offers easy access to talking about or creating specific topics.
Facebook is about posting on walls, talking about pictures or things people have seen/talked about and always giving more insight about your personal life (it's true it can still be fake - but it's less comfortable).
A forum has a socialization part it's true (it's optional), but at the same time, it has a theme, and people are very comfortable with that, going straight to the topic they want to talk about, not searching desperately on Facebook's new calendar option to when this topic was addressed (scrolling down and keep on pressing the Show Older Posts option - it's so hard to use, and so much time can be wasted).
Even if MTF dies, it won't be replaced by Facebook, but rather by another forum.
