    There are a few who don't. I'd much rather it was kept on the forum really as it's a much better resource and more easily searched and archived. But this is the way the world seems to be going.

    My wife has fb so I browse sometimes, but don't post. Shame the forum is so quiet, especially after all the time and effort revamping everything.

    With the way laws are going on the internet and access also to your past online I think you'll see a shift towards a few posting who don't care and the rest just sitting and watching, that will include facebook also, social media will die at some point!

    I remember newsgroups years ago, then they died a death. Forums are heading the same way, although VZI and Pistonheads are not doing bad, they aren't as busy as they used to be. Facebook will probably get replaced by something else eventually too.
    I don't think anyone having access to your online history is a great problem. As long as you aren't doing anything illegal you shouldn't have a problem. Mine is regularly checked and I haven't been locked up ..... yet :D

    I think quite a few people have been caught out when applying for jobs based on what they're written on FB etc.

    But stay sensible and you'll be fine.

    Most forums are going the same way unfortunately due to the likes of FB/IG

    I have to admit im guilty of being on Facebook a lot of the time.

    Perhaps those of us on FB should try and steer people back here?
