Very good. Who is that good looking beast getting choked out?

yeah i think people post more stuff through facebook these days - kind of insular, post stuff to your friends, most of which know all the shit already, and not post throuigh public forums where new interested people could actually see it.

It feels like a bad development with illusion of sharing information which doesnt actually reach the people searching for it.

Although I agree to some extent, I wouldn't say that FB is insular. Sure, if you never share anything yourself the virality of the information stops right there, but for most people this is not the case. A couple of weeks ago a 17 year old girl managed to get 10 000 people to come to an anti-rasism demonstration in Stockholm in less than 24 hours, almost all done via Facebook. Hardly what I call insular and closed. Word of mouth is powerful, if people really share stuff among themselves, which quite a lot of people do.

Discussion forums like this has another way of reaching out, but I wouldn't have them in opposition, but rather different ways of getting the message out there.

dont think that example works in this case though when talking about vegan info.

Its like push vs pull information. on open forums the information is available to those interested parties who actively seek it, like having an information stall on the street. In facebook the poster pushes it to his friends who probably already know about the issues or are not interested in it. Like that vegan outreach saying about how couple hours of leafletting is more effective than lifetime of arguing with friends and families.

But yeah they are not necessarily exclusive, though i think we have seen a drop of people posting information on open forums at the same time when they continue to bombard their friends with the stuff.

Yeah, as I said I do agree with most of what you said, it was just that insulated thing I thought was a bit generalized.

Would be interesting to see if it's true, the drop of postings. Couldn't you work your computer skills magics and present some nice graphs showing how it is? And then post it on Facebook or something ;) :lol:
